LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Louisville Metro Police arrested a man early Wednesday after they say he sexually assaulted a woman he lived with.

An arrest report states Hector Medina, 30, came home intoxicated and began arguing with the woman. The report says after the woman refused to have sex with Medina, he struck her in the face, began to strangle her and told her he was going to kill her.

Medina then proceeded to sexually assault the woman. When Medina fell asleep, the woman fled from the apartment with her children.

Medina was booked into Louisville Metro Corrections on charges of rape, sodomy and wanton endangerment. He is expected to be arraigned on September 12.
