FOREST GROVE, OR (KPTV) -

A man guilty of raping his neighbor at a Forest Grove apartment complex was sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison.

A judge found James Gialloreto, 50, guilty this month on charges of first-degree rape, second-degree assault, second-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, unlawful use of a weapon, strangulation and public indecency.

He was arrested in July 2015.

Investigators said Gialloreto, wearing a ski-mask and armed with a hammer and knife, broke into the woman's apartment on June 10, 2015.

Police said he hit the woman on the head with the hammer, held her at knifepoint and sexually assaulted her.

Court documents state the victim was able to identify Gialloreto as the attacker by his voice and could also partially see his face behind the ski mask.  

Gialloreto lived downstairs from the woman.

Police searched his apartment and said they found clothes matching what the victim said he was wearing the night of the attack, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Gialloreto was sentenced to 29 1/2 years in prison Friday. He must also register as a sex offender.
