A Jonesborough man was charged with sexually assaulting a female victim after stealing her purse and using her keys to enter her residence, police said in a news release.

Randall E. Bennett, 34, 394 Charlie Hicks Road, was arrested Sunday after the victim told police Saturday that she had been robbed and sexually assaulted by a man she knew.

According to a court document, the victim came into contact with Bennett at the McDonalds located at 1710 W Market St., near her apartment. She told police she allowed Bennett to enter her residence to use the restroom. After they were inside, however, Bennett began acting erratic, and she said it was obvious he was on some sort of drug. After this, the victim asked him to leave, and as he left, she did as well.
