After they declined, Griffin left, but later came back and broke into the home while the women were away, the Clarkston Police Department said.

When one of the women returned to the home, police say he used a blunt instrument to attack her and then sexually assaulted her.

"She was badly beaten and left with broken bones," Clarkston Police Sergeant Jason Elliot said. "Her roommate ended up coming back a few minutes later and Griffin attacked her as well."

Griffin will be transported to the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office. It is not yet known what charges he will face.

Police also believed that Griffin may be connected to several other violent crimes in the area.
