Conflicting information on Sedona sexual assault

SEDONA -- On Saturday afternoon, Dec. 28. a 21-year-old woman reported that a man armed with a gun entered her home and sexually assaulted her in her home off Coffee Pot Drive. The suspect is described as white man in his late 30s to early 40s with a shaved head and clean-shaven face. He was wearing a black hoodie and jeans.

It was later determined the male was not armed at all and did not force entry into the home but was allowed into the residence by the victim. Earlier in the afternoon, Vajra Depolo, 21, was shopping with the victim and the police are attempting to locate Depolo to interview him to see if he saw anything that might help with the investigation.
