HOT SPRINGS, AR – Police have arrested a man on suspicion of sexual assault.
According to reports, the victim was at her home in Hot Springs and was receiving “threatening phone calls and text messages” from her ex-boyfriend, 28-year-old Daniel Acosta. The victim told police that around 9:00 pm on March 4, she was laying on her couch in her apartment when Acosta came through her front door, forced her down on the couch by placing his knee on her neck, and forced her to have sexual intercourse with him.
The victim, who suffered injuries to the right side of her neck and her chest, told police that she was afraid to leave, because Acosta threatened to kill her if she did.
Police say Acosta was arrested on April 14 and charged with rape, along with third degree domestic battery.
The investigation is ongoing.
