    Police have made an arrest in the sexual assault of a Manassas, Va., woman in her home on March 9.

    Investigators from the Prince William County Police arrested Jose Ruiz, of Manassas, on Friday and charged him with rape and burglary with intent to defile. He is currently being held without bond.

    News4’s Pat Collins reported the assault occurred just after 4:40 a.m. in the woman's bedroom. She told police she was sleeping and initially thought her husband was getting inside the bed, then quickly realized it was a stranger.

    Police say the suspect likely entered through an unlocked door.
