Police make arrest after woman brutally beaten and left for dead

Police have made an arrest for a brutal attack on a woman left for dead.

Last week we told you about a woman beaten and dragged and dumped from a car at E. 80th and Kinsman in Cleveland.

She'd been strangled and sexually assaulted and left with no pants on too.

Now Cleveland Police Sex Crimes detectives are holding a man in jail, a man the victim knows.

Cops said when they found her, she was barely alive. They identified her using her fingerprints found on a set of keys and a whistle that were laying nearby.

A man saw her in the street and called police Sunday morning.
