Police say the sexual assault involved a 23-year-old Silver Spring woman who was attacked after parking her car and walking to her home. Police say the woman lost consciousness after being choked and woke to find a man sexually assaulting her.

It was not immediately clear if Martinez, who is awaiting trial, had a lawyer.
