A man in Maryland was arrested after demanding sexual favors from a woman whose dog he watched. 

Edward Lewis Thompson, 23, allegedly demanded sexual favors from an unidentified woman on June 11 after he agreed to watch her dog while she went inside a business in Fredericksburg, Maryland.

The woman refused, prompting Thompson to follow her to an alley. He grabbed her and demanded once more for sexual favors in exchange for watching the dog. 

According to reports, the woman's dog then scared Thompson away, allowing the woman to flee the scene and call police.

Surveillance footage and a lengthy investigation ultimately led police to Thompson, who was arrested on June 24. He was indicted on July 10 on charges of second-degree assault and second-degree sex offense.
