LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a Louisville man tried to sodomize a woman in her own back yard.

According to the arrest report, it happened on May 18. Police say 18-year-old Devin Dougherty followed the victim into her back yard, "pushed the victim to the ground and started to remove her pants."

Police say Dougherty then exposed himself and demanded oral sex. That's when police say the victim got up and ran to a neighbor's home and called for help.

Police say Dougherty then ran away, but was later arrested in the 500 block of N. 20th Street. When Doughtery was searched, officers found a small bag of marijuana in his pants pocket.

Doughtery was arrested and remains jailed on a $25,000 cash bond. He is charged with attempted sodomy and possession of marijuana.
