LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man accused of attempting to sexually assault a woman at her workplace has been arraigned.

Demetrius Gordon, 32, of Louisville, is charged with one count of attempted rape.

Gordon is accused of entering a Subway restaurant around 11:25 a.m. Aug. 8 and exposing himself to the female employee. His arrest report says Gordon then followed the employee into the back of the business, pushed her down and attempted to disrobe her.
