Police: GA woman assaulted in her bed by stranger

WOODSTOCK, GA (AP) - A 22-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly breaking into a Woodstock woman's home, sneaking into her bed and sexually assaulting her.

Police said Samuel Sanchez broke into the woman's home early Friday morning.

The victim told reporters that she woke up after Sanchez started touching her. She screamed, and the man fled.

But the woman said the man came back and stuck his head back through her door as she called 911.

Lt. Jay Baker of the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said Sanchez told police he was intoxicated and knew a prior occupant at the home. Sanchez was being held without bond Friday night on charges including sexual battery and attempted rape. It was unclear whether he had an attorney.
