SOUTH TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson man was arrested after two women said he drugged and sexually assaulted them in a South Tucson motel for nearly a week.

A 21-year-old and 25-year-old told police on Oct. 15 they were held against their will, sexually assaulted, beaten and injected with narcotics for six days at El Camino Motel in the 200 block of E. Benson Highway.
