GLENDALE, Ariz. - Glendale police have arrested 52-year-old Jeffery Wilson, a former Phoenix firefighter, in connection with an attack on a woman in a park near 91st Avenue and Bethany Home Road.
The attack happened early Sunday morning. Police say Wilson grabbed a woman, dragged her under a bridge and sexually assaulted her.
Police say tips received after the release of a composite sketch helped in identifying and later arresting Wilson.
Wilson has been booked into jail on one felony count each of sexual assault, kidnapping and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
A Phoenix Fire Department spokesperson says Wilson was terminated several months ago. A reason for the termination was not readily available.
