Kelley Hill, 32 of Omaha, made his first court appearance on Tuesday. He went before a Sarpy County judge on charges including attempted sexual assault. His bond was set at 10% of $250,000. Hill's preliminary hearing was set for August 11 at 1:30 PM.

Investigators say they rarely see a crime like this in Gretna. Hill is accused of threatening two young women, then grabbing one, attempting to sexually assault her.

The 911 call came in early Sunday morning, around 2:30 a.m. Deputies raced out to 204th & Devonshire Drive.

Two women, in their early 20s, told deputies they were walking home from a nearby residence, when a stranger approached them.

Deputies believe Hill approached the women, telling them "he was going to harm them."

The women told deputies Hill attacked one of them, punching her in the face repeatedly. They say he then dragged her across the street, allegedly attempting to sexually assault her.

The victim’s friend called 911, as they both screamed for help.

Their screams were "overheard by a nearby Gretna resident," reads a release from the Sarpy County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators say the man shouted at Hill, ran over to check on the women, and chased Hill off toward North Park ball fields.

Six minutes later, a sheriff’s deputy located Hill hiding under a tree.

Deputies say the victims and the witness confirmed Hill was the attacker.

He was booked at the Sarpy County Jail for third degree assault, attempted sexual assault, and terroristic threats.

The victim was treated at the scene. Deputies say the witness asked not to have his name on the report, because he didn't want attention for what he believed was the only right thing to do.
