A Keokuk man was arrested early Monday morning after an investigation into an alleged sexual assault that occured Sunday night at a home in the 400 block of South 12th Street.
Anthony M. Arguello, 37, has been charged with second degree sexual assault, which is a Class B felony and carries up to 25 years in present.
Keokuk Police Chief Dave Hinton says his department received a call from the victim Sunday at 8:09 p.m. She said a man entered her home without permission and assaulted her just a few minutes prior to the call.
KPD detectives investigated the incident for the next several hours before arresting Arguello Monday morning at his home at approximately 2:40 a.m.
Hinton told WGEM News that, as far as investigators know, there is no connection between the alleged attacker and victim.
Arguello is being held in the Lee County Jail on a $50,000 cash bond. His next appearance in court is scheduled for Jan. 3 at 11 a.m.
