CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A man was arrested Thursday and charged in a sexual assault case that happened near a bus stop in southeast Charlotte in mid-June.

Malcolm Mitchell is charged with three counts of first-degree sex offense, first-degree attempted sex offense, first-degree kidnapping, and first-degree attempted armed robbery.

Police say the incident happened around 11:46 p.m. on June 18, on the 6800 block of Monroe Road. The female victim said she was walking to a bus stop after work when a man with a handgun forced her behind a building and sexually assaulted her.

The man eventually let the victim go and she was able to call 911. Police searched the area but were unable to find the man responsible at the time.

On June 27, officers pulled over a vehicle that matched the description of the suspect's vehicle in the sexual assault case. The driver of the vehicle, Mitchell, was arrested on a traffic violation.

Investigators say information gathered during that traffic stop confirmed Mitchell was the suspect in the sexual assault case, and warrants were issued for his arrest on those charges.
