LAYTON -- A 20-year-old Layton man refused to come out of his apartment when police arrived to arrest him, said Layton Police Lt. Shawn Horton.
Officers got a search warrant and once they were inside, Colton Michael Taylor surrendered without incident.
Taylor was arrested and booked in Davis County Jail on Tuesday by Layton police for sexually assaulting his 18-year-old girlfriend at his apartment in February.
He is being held at the jail in lieu of $20,000 bail. He is charged with forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony. He is also charged with unlawful detention and criminal mischief, both class B misdemeanors.
According to the arrest warrant, Taylor used force and threats of retaliation when he sexually assaulted the woman. He also threw her cellphone off the balcony and broke it.
When confronted by the woman in a text message, Taylor admitted to breaking the phone and "didn't deny the sexual assault accusations and claimed to have done it to 'prove a point," according to the arrest warrant.
