Can police break down a residence door and enter without a warrant based solely on a 911 call reporting a rape in progress? Once police find victim and safely remove her from the scene can they continue to break down a locked door to arrest the defendant?

It's a very close call and not something that can be answered on this forum. You really need to sit down with an attorney to see if you may have a motion to suppress or other defenses.
