The El Centro Police Department arrested a man Wednesday for spousal rape, assault to commit rape and false imprisonment after responding to a domestic disturbance call.
A patrol officer responded to the 1800 block of Barbara Worth Avenue around 4:45 p.m. in response to a 911 call, said Sgt. Mike Crankshaw.
The officer spoke with a 25-year-old woman who alleged her estranged 30-year-old husband assaulted her at a friend's house at the 2000 block of Cottonwood Drive shortly before the call.
The suspect allegedly forced the woman into her car and drove to Austin Road, where he attempted to sexually assault her, Crankshaw said.
