CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A 39-year-old Rockport man is jailed in Corpus Christi on $1.5 million bond following his arrest for two sexual assaults on women 24 hours apart in September.

Corpus Christi police arrested 39-year-old Orlando Robles Friday at his home in nearby Rockport.

He's charged with an assault Sept. 28, when a 19-year-old woman said she fought off her attacker and doused him with pepper spray, and another the next day.

That's when a 22-year-old woman told authorities a man approached her saying something was wrong with his pickup truck, then tried to attack her. She fought back and used her keys to stab him.

The Corpus Christ Caller-Times reports (http://bit.ly/1bqJKhV) police had used a town hall meeting in October to seek help from the public in finding the attacker.
