JOLIET, IL - The Joliet Police Department says it arrested 19-year-old Antonio Russell-Rivers of Niles, Illinois on charges of criminal sexual assault shortly after midnight. He was also charged with resisting a police officer, obstructing a police officer, and he had an active arrest warrant out of Cook County, authorities say. Russell-Rivers sexually assaulted a woman while she was sleeping Monday night, according to the Joliet Police Department.

According to police, the attack occurred in the 900 block of Lois Place. Officers spoke with the victim who told them that Russell-Rivers was a friend of her sisters, and that's why he was visiting the apartment in Joliet.

"The victim said she was sleeping in her bedroom when she was awoken by Antonio sexually assaulting her. The victim screamed and Antonio put his clothes on and left," Joliet Police officials say.

The woman locked her door and called 911. Joliet squad cars found the Niles man nearby, police said. When the officers tried to identify Russell-Rivers, police say, he tried to run, but the officers caught him.

"After a short struggle he was placed into custody by the officers," Joliet Police said.
