A 21-year-old man has been arrested after Denton police say he choked and punched a woman during a sexual assault.
Gadiel Alejandro Davila Perez of Little Elm was booked into the Denton jail Wednesday on a charge of aggravated sexual assault. His bail was set at $1 million, and it was unclear whether he had an attorney.
Authorities were called early Saturday to the 1100 block of Cleveland Street, near West Collins Street, where a 911 caller said the victim had asked for help.
The woman was taken to a hospital. Police said she had been sexually assaulted, choked, punched and threatened.
Police did not say how they identified Davila as a suspect.
Authorities said anyone with information about him may contact Detective Marqui Curtis at 940-349-7727.
