The Sacramento Police Department says a Sacramento County sheriff's deputy stopped suspect Rasaan Zawadi, 21, Thursday morning on an unrelated incident. Police detectives had an arrest warrant for Zawadi for assault with a gang enhancement in the Oct. 1 attack on the 42-year-old woman.
Investigators believe Zawadi and his accomplice posted the video on social media themselves. Detectives suspect the attack was gang-related and they're still looking to find and name the second attacker.
