A 31-year-old Arlington man has been accused of sexually assaulting his roommate while she slept.
Police say Allister Kennedy entered his 24-year-old roommate's bedroom at about 11:50 p.m. Monday. Kennedy allegedly pinned the woman down while she slept and sexually assaulted her.
The woman eventually fought him off and called 911, police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said.
Kennedy was charged with animate object penetration and remains in Arlington County jail, where he is being held without bond.
"Following the discussion with both the victim and the subject, the appropriate charges were brought upon him," Sternbeck said.
Sternbeck did not know how long the two had lived together in their apartment in the 4500 block of South Four Mile Run Drive. They did not have any other roommates.
Police have not received reports of similar incidents at this address in the past, he said.
Investigators do not believe alcohol or drugs were involved in the alleged attack.
The woman was taken to a nearby hospital after the incident, Sternbeck said.
