(WMC-TV) - The man charged with attempted rape is behind bars on $300,000 bond.

Jose Flores was picked up Tuesday night after a surveillance photo helped police identify him. 

Investigators say he tried to rob the Mapco at Navy Road and Bethuel Road in Millington this week.  They say he then dragged a worker into the bathroom and tried to rape her. The worker fought back and, eventually, the attacker ran away.

Flores, 20, recently moved to Millington from New Mexico and lives a couple of blocks from the Mapco store.

Action News 5 will be in court next Friday and will keep you updated.
