Authorities in Arizona say a man has been accused of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman and broadcasting it live on the Internet. A statement filed in court in Phoenix says 20-year-old Jonathan Richard Hock was arrested Monday on charges of sexual assault, kidnapping and taking a surreptitious photo.

The court document said Hock set up a computer Web camera and sexually assaulted the 20-year-old woman in her bedroom in February while she was unconscious from drinking alcohol.

Police said in the court document that the video was watched repeatedly until the Web site where it was posted removed it. It said the Web site service gave a copy of the video to police.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office didn't respond to a request to interview Hock.
