Zachary Person made his first court appearance on Tuesday.

Person is currently facing two felonies related to a sexual assault that occurred at Home 2 Hotel near 180th and Dodge in West Omaha last week.

His bond remains at $1,000,000.

Last Friday, Douglas County deputies arrested the 29-year-old at his mother's home where detectives say they found multiple items of evidence linking him to the assault.
