PRINCETON – A man accused of breaking into a Birch Avenue home and sexually assaulting a woman in her sleep Wednesday, also broke into another home on the same street weeks earlier, police said Friday.
Pedro Arias-Santiago, 26, of Princeton, was initially arrested just after midnight Wednesday after a 28-year-old woman said she woke up to find him sexually assaulting her in her sleep. She ran from the house and called police, who quickly arrested Arias-Santiago outside.
The news of the assault was widely published and on Thursday, another woman came forward. Arias-Santiago, originally from Guatemala, is in the country illegally, police have said.
He is being held at Mercer County Correctional Center on a $200,000 bail.
Just doing the jobs that Americans won’t do. Nothing to see here, move along, move along.
