A woman reportedly grabbed the private parts of a man, who had assaulted her as she slept, and forced him from her home.

Timothy Scott Cannon, 23, of Horseshoe Bend was arrested on Sept. 26 and charged with residential burglary and second degree sexual assault, according to Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence.

Cannon is in the Izard County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bond.
