PHOENIX, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A sexual assault suspect in Phoenix said he was beaten up and tied down by his alleged victim’s husband.

According to AZ Family, Leobardo Salas was arrested Tuesday, Oct. 23 after an incident at a home near 83rd Avenue and Indian School.

The Phoenix Police Department said Salas broke into the home and found the alleged victim bathing her son in a bathroom.

Salas allegedly grabbed the woman's arm and chest while trying to get her pants off.

That's when Felipe Reyes heard his wife scream.

“I open the door and I was surprised to see a man in here with my wife and my son,” Reyes told AZ Family.

Reyes said he punched Salas, threw him to the ground and used a belt to tie his hands together.

The PPD showed up and arrested Salas on charges of sexual abuse, attempted sexual assault and second-degree burglary.

Salas, who is being held on a $100,000 cash bond, told authorities the voices in his head made him sexually assault the woman.
