RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A Raleigh man was arrested Saturday in connection with an attempted rape and kidnapping, Raleigh police announced Tuesday.
The victim was delivering Amazon packages when 26-year-old Jaron Deon Safran approached her and grabbed her.
The victim got away after a struggle, Raleigh police confirmed to CBS 17. Safran rode off on a bicycle, according to a 911 call.
"He was riding around on his bike looking real creepy," the caller said.
Safran was arrested Saturday afternoon and charged with attempted rape, second-degree kidnapping, and sexual battery in connection with the incident, which occurred around 3 p.m. in the 2900 block of Market Bridge Lane.
Safran is being held in the Wake County Detention Center under a $275,000 secured bond.
If he posts bond, he is ordered to avoid contact with the victim.
His next court appearance is scheduled for May 13.
