|Armando Cervantez, 19|
SALEM, Ore. -- A woman said she fought off a man that broke into her house early Sunday morning and tried to sexually assault her, the Marion County Sheriff's Office said.
Marion County deputies responded the 4000 block of State St. after a woman called saying a man, later identified as Armando Cervantez, 19, broke into her house while she was sleeping.
The woman said Cervantez entered the home, placed a rag over her mouth and tried to sexually assault her, but the victim was able to escape and run away.
She told deputies he was wearing a pair of gloves and boxer shorts. A short time later deputies determined the suspect lives on the same property, but in a different residence.
