Police: Woman Sexually Assaulted Inside Frankford Store, Suspect In Custody
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A man is under arrest and charged with sexual assault after police say he attacked a woman inside a Frankford appliance store.
Police were sent to the scene at Torresdale Appliance in the 4500 block of Torresdale Avenue around 5 a.m. Sunday after they received a 911 call from a woman asking for help.
Police say the woman told authorities she had been sexually assaulted inside the store.
Arriving officers were unable to immediately enter the store, so a SWAT team was alerted, forced its way inside and took the unidentified man into custody.
The woman was taken to a local hospital where she was treated and later released.
No further details have been released.
