LINCOLN, Neb. -- A 46-year-old was arrested by Lincoln Police after a woman reported he sexually assaulted her, strangled her, and threatened her with a weapon.

The incident took place on Saturday morning around 12:30 a.m., when the victim reported an acquaintance came over and asked for a tour of the house.

The 29-year-old victim told police the man, Jeffrey Green, 46, became sexually aggressive with her, and she resisted. However, Green grabbed a screwdriver, put it to her neck, and threatened to kill her.

Green continued to be sexually aggressive, the victim reported, but was unsuccessful.

Green then reportedly demanded the victim take a shower, and during this time, Green grabbed a butcher knife and a phone cord.

He proceeded to strangle the victim with the cord, and sexually assault her.

Eventually, the victim was able to escape and call police, authorities said.

When the victim was contacted, she had injuries consistent with her story, according to LPD.

Green was located and denied the allegations. He was arrested and cited for first-degree sexual assault and strangulation.
