Woman Sexually Assaulted In Downtown Tyler Office

A Tyler woman was sexually assaulted and held captive in a downtown office Monday night.

Tyler police Tuesday arrested twenty-one year old Juan Guardado for sexual assault and false imprisonment. Guardado allegedly entered a Tyler office building Monday evening, sexually assaulting a late-working woman and keeping her in the building all night.

When people arrived in the building Tuesday, Guardado fled with the woman. Police found the two in a car in North Tyler.

Police believe Guardado is a drifter, who had seen the woman working late before.
