TEMPLE - A 36-year-old Temple man was arrested Monday following an investigation into a sexual assault that police say occurred in June 2013.

Earnest Tyrone Burnett faces a charge of sexual assault after the alleged victim told police Burnett was engaging in a sexual act with her while she was asleep.

Temple officers responded to a reported sexual assault in the 1400 block of Canyon Creek Dr., on June 28, 2013. The victim told officers that she was at the home with Burnett. That night, the victim said she fell asleep and woke up to find Burnett engaging in a sexual act with her, without her consent.

The Bell County District Attorney's Office reviewed the case on Feb. 21, and issued a complaint. Later that day, investigators from Temple PD's Investigations Unit obtained an arrest warrant from Justice of the Peace G.W. Ivey.

An officer was dispatched to serve the warrant against Burnett on March 17. The officer found Burnett in the 3600 block of Profit Place in Temple and Burnett was taken into custody without incident.
