A Phoenix man faces multiple charges after he was found in a motel room with a woman who claimed that he had sexually abused her.

On June 16, Gallup Police Officer Aaron Marquez was dispatched to Motel 6, 3306 W. Hwy. 66 because of a domestic dispute. The motel manager had called the police after getting a call from Room 236.
