A man has been arrested by Roseville Police on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman.

Police arrested Bret James Larson (photo left), 21, of Roseville on Thursday and booked into Placer County Jail without bail on a variety of charges, including attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment, multiple sex offenses and making terrorist threats.

Larson is suspected of sexually assaulting the woman in a Roseville residence about two weeks ago. After she was able to leave, Larson allegedly threatened her.

When she returned to the residence where the assault occurred on Tuesday to retrieve her belongings, police said that Larson beat her, threatened her with a knife, kept her against her will and choked her.
