Phoenix police arrested a man after he allegedly broke into a woman's home and sexually assaulted her in a closet in front of her 2-year-old son. Bisimo Emedi, 23, was arrested on counts of sexual assault and kidnapping. 

According to court documents obtained by 3TV/CBS 5, on Aug. 13 the victim was on the phone with her friend when she heard a noise and witnessed someone trying to break into her apartment.

The victim told her friend what was going on, grabbed her 2-year-old son and the two hid in her bedroom closet. Police reports say the victim's friend then called 911. 

When officers arrived on scene, they heard a child, an older male and someone crying, according to court documents. Police made their way inside and found the victim lying on the floor naked and crying and found Emedi holding the 2-year-old boy inside the closet.

Police say Emedi had a shirt on but was not wearing clothing on his lower body. Emedi was then separated from the boy, placed in handcuffs and taken outside.
