BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) – A man accused of trying to sexually assault a Battle Creek woman, allegedly holding her against her will for hours in her home, has been arraigned.

Johnny Henderson, 29, is facing charges of attempted criminal sexual conduct and false imprisonment.

Police were called to a home on Colvin Street around 2:20 a.m. Thursday for a 24-year-old woman who said that Henderson, who is an acquaintance, tried to assault her.

The woman told offers that Henderson held her against her will for almost three hours at her home on Margaret Street, and forcefully tried to take off her clothes, according to police.

However, the woman was able to escape and ran to the home on Colvin Street, police said.

But before police got to the house on Colvin Street, the woman said Henderson followed her there and tried to break in by banging beating on the windows and door with a rake, police said.

Henderson left before officers arrived, but was later arrested back at the woman’s home on Margaret Street.

He is being held at the Calhoun County Jail on a $30,000 bond.
