STORM LAKE, Iowa (KTIV) -

A Storm Lake, Iowa man is charged with sexually assaulting a woman in her apartment early Tuesday right in front of the woman's three-year-old child.

Police say that child dialed 911 during the alleged attack and that's what led them to the scene.

Police say 30-year-old Denis Reyes-Morales knocked on the front door of the victim's apartment.

When she opened it, that's when police say he attacked her.

Police say that when they arrived on the scene, Reyes-Morales jumped out a second story window.  About an hour later, officers spotted him several blocks away and arrested him.

The victim knows Reyes-Morales, and told police that he also tried to sexually assault her this past weekend.

He's charged with third-degree sexual abuse, assault with intent to commit sexual abuse and first-degree burglary, all felony charges.

A hold has been placed on him by the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
