A Lancaster County judge Tuesday ordered a 25-year-old man accused in a Lincoln woman's sexual assault to be held in jail on $500,000 bond, according to court documents.

Alejandro G. Prado, a transient, was charged with first-degree sexual assault.

Lincoln police investigators allege Prado delivered a pizza to the 20-year-old woman's apartment at 2:30 a.m. March 10 and asked if he could come back later, according to court documents.

A witness told police that Prado returned to the apartment, knocked on the door and let himself in without invitation when two women answered, an affidavit for his arrest said.

Later, as they slept, the 20-year-old woman awoke to being sexually assaulted and ran out of the room, the investigator said.

The other woman who was also in the bedroom identified Prado as the culprit, police said.

In an interview with police, Prado denied returning to the apartment after making the pizza delivery, the affidavit said.

Police arrested Prado early Monday morning near 27th and Superior streets, according to jail records.

The Lancaster County Public Defender's Office has been appointed to represent Prado. If convicted, he faces up to 50 years in prison.
