(CBS Seattle) — A man has been arrested and booked into King County Jail for investigation of rape after he allegedly sexually assaulted a woman while at church.

According to Seattle Police, Aaron Little, 37, attacked a 25-year-old woman during Sunday services in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood. Witnesses told police the man lifted the woman’s skirt and began to assault her. A group of the victim’s relatives, who were attending services with her, pounced on the man and held him down until police arrived.

The incident began earlier in the services when the woman reportedly stood up at one point and the suspect, who had been sitting behind her, reached over and lifted her skirt to look underneath.

Despite the woman not knowing what was going on, her relatives caught the man in the act and immediately took him outside of the church.

But before the family returned to their seats, the suspect slipped back into the church through a side door. Police say the man went over and immediately sat next to the victim and started his attack.

Officers say the suspect claimed to have mental health problems and is currently on medication.

During the course of the investigation the officers learned that the suspect is a registered sex offender.
