Man accused in rape of elderly woman in custody

A man accused of accused of sex assault on a 71-year-old woman turned himself into authorities late Thursday night.

Jacob Lashun Lewis, 33, was wanted in connection with a Feb. 7 attack on a 71-year-old woman at her home on East Boulder Street.

Police say a man was looking into the bedroom window of the woman's house as she watched television. The woman went to get her gun to protect herself and came out of the room to find the man in her house. He rushed up to her, knocked the gun out of her hand and sexually assaulted her. He then took her wallet.

The suspect was later identified as Lewis through the victim's description and surveillance from a nearby Walmart.
