A 25-year-old man identified by police as Jovan Jones of Marin City was arrested Saturday night for allegedly raping and robbing a woman after forcing his way into her apartment on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco.
The 26-year-old victim was entering her residence on Alta Street at around 8 p.m. when the suspect pushed his way in, according to San Francisco police Sgt. Michael Andraychak. Once inside, Jones allegedly forced the woman to the floor and threatened to kill her, before demanding money and sexually assaulting her.
A 911 call from a neighbor alerted police, and when officers arrived, Jones jumped off of a balcony and ran, police said. With the help of officers from the Central Police Station and a California Highway Patrol helicopter, the suspect was found hiding in the backyard of a residence on Green Street and handcuffed at 9:20 p.m., Andraychak said.
