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.
