PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Police have apprehended a suspect accused of sexually assaulting a woman at gunpoint inside a Northeast Philadelphia home earlier this week.

Investigators say 57-year-old Albert DiPrimeo was arrested without incident in the 2000 block of E. Venango Street.

DiPrimeo was wanted in connection with the incident that occurred in the 7900 block of Marsden Street in the city’s Holmesburg section Monday morning.

According to investigators, a female who was formerly in a relationship with DiPrimeo told them he entered her home and sexually assaulted her at gunpoint.

Police were called to the home and it was believed DiPrimeo was inside the home, but upon entry into the home, police did not locate DiPrimeo.

DiPrimeo remains behind bars.
