Man charged in connection with sexual assault in San Francisco

Jovan Jones, the man arrested last weekend for allegedly breaking into a Telegraph Hill apartment and sexually assaulting a woman, will be arraigned this afternoon, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said.

The 25-year-old from Marin City reportedly forced his way into the 26-year-old woman’s apartment about 8 p.m. Saturday as she was returning home, Sgt. Michael Andraychak said. Jones threw the victim to the ground and threatened to kill her before demanding her property and assaulting her, Andraychak said.

After a 911 call, police arrived and saw Jones flee the scene by jumping off a balcony. With the assistance of a California Highway Patrol helicopter, police located and arrested Jones about 9:20 p.m.

Jones was booked on 13 felony counts — including burglary, robbery, threats, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and rape — and a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest. The charges against Jones were still being finalized Tuesday, according to Bastian, while prosecutors continued their investigation.
