PHOENIX - Police have arrested a man accused of sexually assaulting a Phoenix woman in her bedroom last month.
According to Phoenix police spokesman James Holmes, detectives located 36-year-old Conrado Lopez-Moreno, who was known as a local transient, on Sunday.
On Jan. 5, the 27-year-old victim woke up to find Lopez-Moreno armed with a knife, sexually assaulting her, Holmes said.
The incident happened around 3:15 a.m. near Glendale and 35th avenues.
The victim's boyfriend was sleeping in the same bed and physically pulled the suspect off the victim when he woke up, according to Holmes.
After a struggle, Lopez-Moreno broke free and managed to leave the home.
With the work of Phoenix Police Family Investigation Bureau detectives, patrol and Neighborhood Enforcement Team officers and Special Assignments Unit detectives, Lopez-Moreno was found and detained Sunday.
Holmes said Lopez-Moreno admitted to the offenses and was booked into jail.
