SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- A Scottsdale man is accused of sexually abusing a woman in a park and breaking into another woman's home, both times armed with a knife.

Police say 20-year-old Addison John Reyna entered a vehicle in a park near Via Linda and Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard in Scottsdale around 5 a.m. on June 30 and pulled a knife on a woman who was sleeping inside.

He allegedly began to sexually assault her and threatened to kill her if she screamed.

Reyna reportedly fled the area after a struggle with the woman.

Police say Reyna entered a home near 110th Street and Via Linda shortly after 4 p.m. Monday and pulled a knife on the woman inside.

She was able to escape the home, slamming Reyna's arm in the door as she left, according to court documents. Reyna reportedly chased her down the street but did not catch up with her.

Police served a search warrant at Reyna's nearby home Wednesday afternoon, which they say was filled with garbage.

They located two knives in his bathroom and a pair of red suspenders matching those in a suspect description. According to court documents, Reyna claimed any knives found in the home belonged to the previous homeowner.

Police say both victims identified Reyna in a photo lineup.

According to the documents, Reyna claimed he was with his father at the time of the second incident. Reyna's father told police he was with his son that day but dropped him off later in the afternoon.

Reyna was booked on two counts of kidnapping, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of sexual abuse and one count of first-degree burglary -- all felony charges.
