(KSL News/KCSG) A would-be rape victim in Cedar City used her gift of gab to get away from her attacker.
Police say an intoxicated and knife-wielding 18-year-old man walked into a home around 3 a.m. Sunday. The woman talked to the man about everything from religion to her health.
Finally he let her go to the bathroom.
Sgt. Jerry Womack of the Cedar City Police Department said, "He gave her some time to go to the bathroom, and that's when she called 911 and told us about it."
Detectives arrested Jose Juan Ayungua at a nearby apartment. He faces charges of aggravated sexual assault, aggravated burglary and kidnapping.
