The Council Bluffs Police Department, aided by surveillance video footage, identified Henton and issued an arrest warrant on Thursday. He was taken into custody by the Omaha Police Department at around 3:20 a.m. local time on Friday.

Omaha Police Unaware of Arrest Warrant

Former Arizona Republican Senator Martha McSally became the victim of a sexual assault while running in Council Bluffs, Iowa.


Despite McSally’s swift actions, calling 911 and chasing the assailant, Henton managed to escape initially. Omaha police responded to a welfare call at Henton’s home on Thursday, unaware of the arrest warrant. 

Subsequently, after being released from the hospital, Henton was taken into custody by Omaha police following a second call.

McSally expressed gratitude to the detectives working on her case and delivered a stern message to the suspect, stating, “You will not get away with this or try to harm and violate another woman. You picked the wrong target.”

This incident is not the first time McSally has confronted sexual assault. During a 2019 congressional hearing on military sexual assault, she revealed her own experience of being raped by an Air Force officer. Her courage in coming forward and advocating for survivors underscores the urgent need for continued efforts to address and prevent such heinous acts.
