WEST VALLEY CITY -- Police in West Valley City have arrested a man accused of sexually assaulting a woman in the bathroom of a fast food restaurant.

Sgt. Jason Hauer says in a statement that 25-year-old Justin Loyd Martinez was arrested Tuesday afternoon and booked into the Salt Lake County jail.

He is facing charges of kidnapping, rape and assault.

Police say Martinez followed a 20-year-old woman into a restaurant's bathroom and attacked her around 3 a.m. Sunday near 3500 South and 5600 West.

Hauer says Martinez fled when a restaurant employee and friend of the woman interrupted the assault.

Officers say the woman grabbed a jacket the suspect had been carrying, and that led investigators to Martinez.

It was unclear Wednesday morning if Martinez had an attorney.
