A creep is in custody after sexually assaulting a homeless woman in broad daylight in Logan Cirlce, police said.

The man, whose identity has not been released but is believed to be in his 20s, is accused of exposing himself and sexually assaulting a woman as she was asleep on a bench in the park, said Officer Tanya Little, a police spokeswoman.

The victim, 31, told investigators she woke up to the man, who also is homeless, sticking his hands down her pants, Little said. It happened just before noon, as the park, located at 19th Street near Logan Circle, was crowded with people enjoying the midday sun.

Not long after, officers picked up the alleged perv a few blocks away, at 16th and Arch Streets, police said.

Investigators from the Special Victims Unit are currently interviewing both the suspect and the victim in this ongoing investigation.
