A 23-year-old woman reported going to sleep in an Oakwood motel room and waking up to a man sexually assaulting her, police said.

Oakwood Police said the woman was at the Quality Inn on Mundy Mill Road Oct. 6 with other people “where they were each consuming alcohol,” according to investigator Todd Templeton.

“The victim went to sleep and later awoke to find the suspect having unwanted sexual intercourse with her without her consent,” Templeton wrote in an email. “The victim immediately summoned the police to the location but the suspect fled as she did so.”

Following the report, police interviewed the people involved and arrested Daniel Espinoza, 30.

Templeton said the woman and Espinoza met that day.

Espinoza was charged with rape and aggravated sodomy. He was booked Saturday, Nov. 10, in to the Hall County Jail, where he remains.

Magistrate Court officials were unclear if Espinoza has an attorney.
