In the first case, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say a woman reported being sexually assaulted while walking in the 4400 block of Murrayhill Road around 6:30 p.m. Jan 23.

Officers said the victim, a 24-year-old woman, reported that a man attacked her, forced her to the ground and forcibly fondled her.

The victim told officers she resisted and screamed and her attacker ran away on foot.

Police said earlier they had strong leads and were working with youth crime detectives to crack the case.

Police said they searched the area the night the incident happened, but couldn’t find anyone.

No details about the second case or the armed robbery have been revealed.

CMPD held a briefing at police headquarters on E. Trade Street at 2 p.m. Monday to discuss the arrest.
