LITCHFIELD PARK, AZ - A Litchfield Park man is facing multiple felony charges after allegedly sexually assaulting his wife and molesting a female relative.
Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Deputy Joaquin Enriquez said the suspect was arrested Sunday after fleeing his home Saturday night.
The man's wife reportedly called 911 around 11 p.m. Saturday, claiming she had been physically assaulted by her husband.
Enriquez said the woman told deputies that she has been beaten by her husband several times in the past, and the attacks had recently become more violent, escalating to include sexual assaults.
As the investigation continued, a teenage relative also revealed to detectives that the suspect had been molesting her for the last two years.
He is currently facing sexual assault charges and charges of sexual conduct with a minor.
ABC15 is not identifying the suspect because he has not yet been formally charged.
