Bowling Green man charged with rape, kidnapping

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A man arrested this morning on rape charges is now also a suspect in a 2020 shooting.

On Monday, a victim reported an EPO violation at the Bowling Green Police Department. The victim told police Kaleb Rose, 31, of Bowling Green “forced her to have sex on a recent date.”

The victim also told police that, during another incident, Rose “pinned them down, strangled them and forced them to have sex with him,” police say.

Additionally, police say the victim said Rose beat her dog to the point the animal had bloody eyes and a limp. The victim said Rose tossed her into the kitchen table when she tried to intervene, police say.

Police also listened to a recording where Rose stated, “I hit your dog because he was barking. I’m allowed to do that.”

During the course of the investigation, Bowling Green police say they also discovered Rose had been involved in the non-fatal shooting of Troy Armentrout in 2020.

Police say they were told Rose shot Armentrout after finding out Armentrout “had a sexual relationship with his wife in the past.”

Armetraut sustained injuries in the shooting but survived.

Rose is charged with first-degree rape, first-degree assault, first-degree strangulation, first-degree rape (domestic violence), tampering with physical evidence, second-degree cruelty to animals and fourth-degree assault (domestic violence), minor injury.

Two additional charges were added Dec. 8, including kidnapping of an adult and first-degree sodomy, domestic violence.

Rose remains in the Warren County Detention Center.
