— A woman accused a Myrtle Beach man attempting to have sex with her against her will while she was sleeping Friday night after getting into an argument with her husband.

Iban Bednal-Guerrero, 32, is charged with exposure of private parts in a lewd and lascivious manner and third-degree assault and battery.

According to a Myrtle Beach police report, officers responded to the 2000 block of U.S. Highway 15 Saturday morning and spoke with a woman who said that she awoke to her husband’s cousin, Bednal-Guerrero, on top of her as she was sleeping at about 10 p.m. Friday.

She told police Bednal-Guerrero was trying to pull down her pants and said “Let’s have sex, no one will know.” She said Bednal-Guerrero’s pants were down around his knees.

The victim said she told Bednal-Guerrero to get off of her and attempted to push him off for a while until he got up and pulled his pants up. The woman tried to leave but Bednal-Guerrero pushed her back and told her that her husband had been kicked out and she could stay.

She was able to get away and call her husband using a neighbor’s phone. According to the report, Bednal-Guerrero and the victim’s husband had been drinking earlier Friday and got into an argument where Bednal-Guerrero allegedly pushed the victim’s husband off of the porch.

Bednal-Guerrero told the victim’s husband that he had 30 minutes to get his stuff out of his house, according to the report. Police said the victim’s husband had gone to another relative’s home to ask if he and his wife could stay there while the alleged assault occurred.

Bednal-Guerrero was located and arrested Saturday afternoon.
