COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A man has been arrested on sexual assault and kidnapping charges in connection with an August 2015 incident in Colorado Springs.

Police arrested 23-year-old Ahmed Almesbahi of Saudi Arabia just before 7 p.m. Monday. He is charged with sexual assault, first-degree assault, second-degree kidnapping, intimidating a witness or victim, menacing, and unlawful termination of pregnancy in the first degree. The UCCS Police Department assisted with the arrest.

Police said this isn’t the first time Almesbahi has been arrested. In September 2015, he was arrested on misdemeanor charges for a domestic disturbance that occurred a few days earlier.

Then, in May 2016, the victim in that case contacted police and told them Almesbahi had sexually assaulted her and terminated her pregnancy in August 2015. Police investigated the allegations and arrested Almesbahi on the new charges Monday.
