SAN FRANCISCO—A Marin City man is in custody after police say he forced his way into a San Francisco woman's apartment and assaulted her.

A police spokesman says 25-year-old Jovan Jones was arrested around 9:20 p.m. Saturday after officers were called to the woman's Telegraph Hill apartment by a neighbor and Jones tried to escape arrest by jumping off a balcony.

Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak says Jones was taken into custody after police set up a perimeter and a California Highway Patrol helicopter was called in to help in the search.

Andraychak says Jones was arrested on suspicion of rape, burglary, robbery and other charges.
