It was reported to police that a male suspect was alleged to have broken into the elderly woman’s residence and sexually assaulted her. The complainant resisted, and the suspect eventually fled the scene on foot.
The elderly complainant was treated and transported to hospital for treatment.

Through the combined efforts of EPS Sexual Assault investigators, Forensic Identification Services Section and Southeast Division members, a male suspect was identified and taken into custody at a southeast residence, at approximately 12:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.
