PHOENIX - A man accused of sexually assaulting a woman and then posting footage online is in police custody.

Jonathon Hock, 20, was arrested on Monday and faces one count of sexual assault and surreptitious video-taping.

Police say the victim reported to police she had possibly been sexually assaulted in March of this year about a week after the incident. The 20-year-old victim said she was unconscious at the time. She was reportedly told that a video showing her sexual assault was posted online.

Investigators were able to establish a probable cause after determining that the video on the website may have been a live broadcast with a webcam. A search warrant was issued for the site and its hosting site.

Police believe there may have been similar acts of this type that involve the suspect. If you have any information on this case, you are asked to call Silent Witness and will remain anonymous.
