She fought back while he “made comments about having sexual intercourse with her,” police said in a statement.

Two bystanders intervened and stopped the attack, detaining Caballero until police came.

“The Tempe Police Department would like to thank the individuals who came to the aid of the victim in this incident and potentially preventing the situation from becoming much worse,” officials said.

“The Tempe Police Department Special Victims Unit is working with surrounding agencies to determine if there are incidents of a similar nature that Caballero may be involved in.”

The woman had minor injuries. Caballero was taken into custody.
