TEHACHAPI, Calif. - An elderly man is back in jail facing six felony charges after he allegedly sexually assaulted a woman in Tehachapi.
Deputies were called to a home on Woodford Tehachapi Road after an 11-year-old boy reported his mother had been missing for an hour.
Deputies heard screams coming from a detached garage and found 79-year-old David Partovi with the victim, who was naked and bound.
Investigators believe the woman met Partovi online and had been living on his property for a month before the alleged assault.
Partovi's bail has been raised to $1 million and he is currently in custody.
The victim has since been released from the hospital and is now with family on the east coast.
