LAS CRUCES — A White Sands Missile Range man has been arrested on charges that he sexually assaulted a woman at a Las Cruces party last weekend.

Randin Hoyuela, 23, of White Sands Missile Range, is charged with one third-degree felony count of criminal sexual penetration. Hoyuela was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center with bond set at $10,000.

Las Cruces Police detectives learned that Hoyuela was partying with other friends Saturday night and Sunday morning at an apartment on Union Avenue. Sometime early Sunday morning Hoyuela is alleged to have sexually assaulted a 22-year-old woman who was intoxicated and had fallen asleep inside one of the apartment's bedrooms.
