Police: Buckeye sex assault suspect surrenders with a note

BUCKEYE, AZ - A sexual assault suspect went to the Buckeye police station and surrendered with a note.

Buckeye police report that on June 16, Jacob Glenn Smith, 29, went to the home of an acquaintance to borrow some video games. He was allowed into the home by a woman.

Once inside, Smith allegedly told the woman to remove her clothes. Police say the two fought until Smith pulled a gun and fired a shot into the ceiling. 

After putting the gun to the woman’s head, he reportedly 'zip tied' her hands behind her back, and moved her to the bedroom where he sexually assaulted her.

Before leaving the home, near Sun Valley Parkway and Van Buren Street, he put her phone in the pantry so he could, "get a head start."

Police say the next day, Smith entered the Buckeye police station and handed a note to an officer which said. "I'm sorry for what I've done. If you would like my full cooperation and the gun, I ask for 3-4 days in iso(lation) to rest. If you do this, i'll give full cooperation and the weapon."

Smith is being held without bond on a sexual assault charge.
