A woman says she was raped in Uptown this weekend. The 47-year-old told Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police a man forced her to have sex sometime between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. on South College Street. A suspect has not been named.

A man is in the hospital today after he fell from Crowder's Mountain on Labor Day. The man fell 15 to 20 feet off a training wall and is in the hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.

In the debate over voter IDs in Texas, both sides argue they are being discriminated against. Opponents of the measure say it will impede blacks and Latinos from voting, while the state argues the Justice Department is targeting Southern states with such a law on the books (including North Carolina). If Texas loses this battle, it would require federal approval for any changes to its voting laws, which goes against a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling.

The FBI says it is investigating a cyber attack that led to nude photos of dozens of movie stars and singers, including Rhianna and Jennifer Lawrence, to be leaked. Authorities believe hackers broke into the iClouds of the various performers for the photos.

Lawyers shut down two fundraisers for Darren Wilson, the officer who shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, to determine how to best use the $400,000 the GoFundMe pages have raised.
