    Palm Beach County Sheriff's officials in Florida say a man called 911 on himself after sexually assaulting a woman who had responded to a Craigslist ad for a cleaning job.
     
    The Palm Beach Post reports 47-year-old Joel Jones flagged down deputies responding to the call Tuesday evening. Before they could ask his name, he began shouting, "Take me to jail."
     
    According to an arrest report, Jones told deputies he "tricked" the woman into meeting him and had "brutally raped her."
     
    The victim said she Jones attacked her as he was showing her an office building she would be cleaning. She says he let her go after sexually assaulting her and she heard him calling 911 as she left.

    Jones was charged with sexual assault, false imprisonment, aggravated assault and battery, jail records showed. He was being held without bond Thursday and it was unknown if he has an attorney.
