A Midvale man who ran ads in the newspaper classified advertisements offering car repair services has been charged with sexually abusing a female client, according documents filed in 3rd District Court Friday.

The man, 64, went to the woman's Salt Lake County home and while talking with her about the problems with the car, began to touch her and make comments of a sexual nature, the charges state. The man also tried to undress the woman, but she fought him off, hitting him in the head with her fists.

Police nabbed the man after calling him to set up a bogus appointment for car repairs, documents state.

The man is charged with one count of forcible sexual abuse, punishable by up to 15 years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
