A man was in custody Friday in connection with the beating and alleged sexual assault of a Subway sandwich shop employee earlier this week in Sacramento.
Kenneth Chandler Anderson, 22, was arrested by Sacramento County sheriff's deputies and booked on four felony charges in connection with the assault on the woman as she arrived to work early Tuesday, KTXL-TV in Sacramento reported.
Anderson is a longtime employee of the sandwich shop, according to the Sacramento Bee. He was booked into jail Thursday. The motive for the attack was unknown, according to a sheriff’s department statement.
The female employee was “violently beaten” and tied up at the sandwich shop after she arrived at work around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. The woman, who is in her 20s, also told investigators she was sexually assaulted, the Bee reported.
She was able to free herself and call for help about 8:30 a.m.
When help arrived the victim was taken to a hospital. Detectives said the suspect was wearing all black clothing and a mask. The victim’s injuries were described as “significant.”
