A Mesa rap artist has been charged with sexual assault.

"Ty the Ruler" has been accused of sexual assault after meeting a woman at a bus stop and taking her to a recording studio.

Court documents show that on February 27 Ruben Tyrone Davis, 23, also known as "Ty the Ruler," met the victim at a bus stop in Mesa.

They went to a music studio near Country Club and University drives where he works. This is where police say Davis sexually assaulted the victim. The woman says she told him several times to stop and leave her alone. 

The victim reports in the court paperwork that Davis told her, "The nastier it gets, the more money he would give her." The victim told Davis she was not a prostitute and never discussed having sex with him. 

Police says Davis took the victim to a store to buy some cigars, but when she exited the store Davis disappeared.

When Davis was confronted by police he strongly denied the accusations. Mesa police got a search warrant and found DNA samples belonging to Davis on the couch in the studio and on the victim. 

Davis was arrested on March 17 and charged with multiple counts of sexual assault and sexual abuse.
