BRIMFIELD, Ohio - Tallmadge and Brimfield police officers arrested a man accused of sexual assault Sunday morning.
Filip Konstantinovich, 49, was found in the parking lot of the Brimfield Walmart after a tip call and then led officers on a pursuit on Tallmadge Road and then north on Mogadore before crashing his car into a utility pole.
Konstantinovich was not injured and taken into custody.
Police said the incident allegedly involving the 49-year-old suspect happened on Friday morning when a 24-year-old woman reported a man she recognized as a neighbor entered her apartment and sexually assaulted her at knifepoint.
Before leaving, police said, the man stated he intended to commit suicide.
Konstantinovich was taken to the Stow City Jail for processing. After booking, he will be transported to the Summit County Jail. A video arraignment will be held at Stow Municipal Court Monday at 11 a.m.
