PEARLAND, Texas (KTRK) -- A man was arrested in the case of a college student who says she was attacked while walking her dog in a Pearland neighborhood.
Police said Omar Johnson was taken into custody on Thursday near Morgan Road and Magnolia Parkway.
On June 16, police said the victim, Jenna Zieber, who spoke with ABC13 last week about the encounter, was walking her dog when Johnson allegedly knocked her to the ground and covered her mouth.
Zieber said she called 911 by using the "SOS" function on her phone.

Johnson was arrested and charged with unlawful restraint, which is a class "A" misdemeanor in the state of Texas.
