A man is facing multiple charges in a sexual assault at a Newington hotel, police said.

The victim identified Jamie Tirado, 36, of Newington, as the man who sexually and physically assaulted her in a room at the Grantmoor Motel, police said. He also is suspected of threatening and strangling her, as well as holding her in the hotel room against her will.

The woman told police that she tried to call them for help, but the suspect took her phone to intercept her call, police said.

The victim suffered minor physical injuries as a result and was treated at a local hospital. She's since been released.

The motel is located at 3000 Berlin Turnpike in Newington.

Police charged Tirado with first-degree sexual assault, third-degree assault, second-degree strangulation, second-degree threatening, first-degree reckless endangerment, interference with emergency calls and first-degree unlawful restraint.

Authorities are holding Tirado in custody on a $250,000 bond and he was scheduled to be arraigned in New Britain Superior Court on Monday.
