ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A woman in Warren County says she was sexually assaulted after a neighbor allegedly sneaked into her home and climbed into bed while her husband was next to her.

“I felt him touch me and rub himself on me. I said, ‘What are you doing?’” said the victim, whose identity remained concealed. “Then I realized it was a random naked guy in bed with me and my husband.”

The victim later said she asked the suspect, Mario Garcia, 18, “What are you doing?” to which Garcia said, “Shh. Go back to sleep.”

After being discovered, the woman said Garcia attempted to leave the home, but then she and her husband chased after him.

“I beat him pretty good,” said the woman. “Until I finally got my husband to put him in a choke hold and hold him there.”

Garcia lives near the victim, but says she doesn’t know who he is.

“What if it had been my girls? I can’t sleep at night. I don’t understand how somebody does it,” the victim said. “His family is right down there. What if they get mad because they know he’s going to go to prison?”

Garcia is currently being held in the Warren County jail on possible burglary, sodomy, and sexual abuse charges and on $100,000 bond.
