- She thought she was showing up for a job cleaning house, instead a woman says she was lured to a vacant home and sexually assaulted.

Accused of tricking a woman then trying to sexually assault her, Canton police say 45-year-old Ali Mohamad-Sahrif Al-Aboosi of Dearborn was charged thanks to a brave woman.

"She fought him off and went to a neighbor to actually call police," said Lt. Craig Wilsher, Canton police.

Canton police say the woman met Al-Aboosi earlier that day. The woman, thinking Al-Aboosi was offering her a job and got into his car.

"They met in Dearborn in the area of Ford Road and Telegraph," Wilsher said. "He offered her a job cleaning and drove her to Canton."

Police say Al-Aboosi brought the woman to a vacant home near Lilley and Warren where he forced the woman inside. The woman eventually fought him off and ran to a neighbor's house. Al-Aboosi fled.

Canton police say that neighbor immediately called 911 and thanks to that woman -- and that neighbor -- police were able to track Al-Aboosi down in Dearborn just three hours later.

"The neighbor calling us and getting us involved quickly, we were able to identify the person and get him arrested and in custody before anything else further occurred."

Al-Aboosi is now charged with attempted sexual assault and fourth degree criminal sexual conduct.

Pleading not guilty, he has been given a $150,000 bond and is due back in court April 29. He faces up to 10 years in prison.

Canton police says everyone needs to be cautious.

"We want to caution people not to get into vehicles if you don't know somebody or don't know where you are going. You don't know the intent of the person driving that vehicle or picking you up."
