LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Police have arrested a second person in connection with one of two sexual assaults near the University of Louisville campus.

News outlets report that according to a Louisville Metro Police citation, 18-year-old Dezmeontai Tinsley was arrested Tuesday and admitted to his involvement in one of the assaults. He’s charged with kidnapping, sodomy and first-degree robbery.

Tinsley’s arrest comes four days after police said they arrested a 16-year-old boy in connection with both assaults.

Police say that on Sept. 12, Tinsley and the teen forced a woman into her vehicle at gunpoint. The males forced the victim to withdraw money from her bank account before sexually assaulting her. The woman was freed, but Tinsley and the boy kept her car.

It’s unclear if Tinsley has an attorney.
