SAN ANTONIO -- Police arrested a man after they he sexually assaulted a woman and used his pit bull dog to threaten her.
Police said the alleged attack happened Thursday. The woman told investigators she met 30-year-old Alex Martinez at a night club a few weeks ago. She said she picked up Martinez at his home on Wednesday, and they went to a club to have a couple of drinks and to get something to eat afterward. After returning to Martinez's apartment, the woman said he refused to let her leave and then sexually assaulted her. She said when she tried to put her clothing back on, he told her to take her pants back off and then opened the back door and threatened to let his pit bull dog inside. She said he attempted to have sex with her a second time but could not.
The woman told officers she stayed with Martinez out of fear but was able to leave in the morning after telling him she was going to get something to eat. She said she then went to a friends house, and the friend told her to call the police.
When questioned by police, Martinez admitted the two had sex but claimed it was consensual. He now faces sexual assault charges.
