ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Jurors heard closing arguments Thursday afternoon in Dougherty County Superior Court in the fourth day of a rape and false imprisonment trial of an Albany man.

55-year old Lawrence Brown is charged with raping a 61-year old woman in her home May 31, 2011.

Prosecutors say Brown held a knife to the woman's throat and repeatedly hit her as he raped her.

The woman escaped and called police who found Brown nude and asleep on her couch.
