GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Glendale police have made an arrest in a March 11 sexual assault.

Jorge Lopez Nunez, 26, was taken into custody Monday. He faces three felony counts; which include sexual assault, second-degree burglary and kidnapping.

On March 11, just before 3 a.m., residents from a Glendale apartment complex had called police after hearing screams of a female in the complex.

Glendale patrol officers responded and checked the original possible location. After checking welfare where the initial calls came in, they were able to locate the victim, who resided in a different building. 

She reported that she had been sleeping, but woke up to find Nunez yanking her toward him.

She told police that he kept her from seeing his face during the entire incident by physically forcing her to look away from him.

She attempted to fight back and get away from her assailant, causing injuries and ripping off buttons from his shirt.

During the investigation, detectives working the case were able to develop probable cause for the arrest of Jorge Lopez Nunez. Search warrants were obtained and served on Nunez for biological evidence and other items of value.

Clothing the victim described the suspect wearing during the incident was also recovered.

Nunez was booked into the Maricopa County jail.
