PROVO -- Provo police arrested a man who is accused of attacking a woman at her yard sale last Friday.

According to the Deseret News, police say the man grabbed the woman's hair, pulled her head backward, then kissed and licked the woman's face. They say he also tried to pour Gatorade in her mouth. A police affidavit claims he fondled her as she tried to get away.

The woman ran into her apartment near 500 North and 100 East and locked the door. She says the man followed her and tried to get in. She grabbed a gun and called for help.

When officers arrived, Jeronimo Sanchez-Tolentino, 44, said he didn't touch the woman except for giving her a high five.

He was arrested and booked into the Utah County Jail on charges of sex abuse and intoxication.
