ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Angelina County Sheriff's deputies have arrested a Lufkin man accused of sexually assaulting a woman at her residence.

Alan Rochele Pounds, 21, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail. The Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace court set his bond at $35,000 in connection to the alleged sexual assault.

According to the arrest affidavit issued by the Angelina County Sheriff's Department, the victim was at her residence on Sept. 2 when she heard a tap on one of her windows. Going toward the front of her home, she saw no one and headed back inside. At that point, a white male later identified as Pounds allegedly grabbed her around the waist and forced her into her laundry room.

At that point, Pounds "told her he wanted sex," and the victim told him no, the affidavit states. He then  sexually assaulted her. When Pounds was finished, he asked the victim if she was OK. Before leaving the area on foot, he allegedly told the woman that he would be back the next day.

Later that day, two detectives with the Angelina County Sheriff's Department interviewed the victim at her home and showed her a photo lineup of possible suspects. The victim identified Pounds, explaining that he has worked with her husband before and she had given him a ride home when his vehicle was broken down.

Authorities obtained a warrant for Pounds' arrest on Sept. 6. He was arrested on Sept. 7, where he is being held on a $35,000 bond.
