A 46-year-old Waukesha man is facing charges after he allegedly sexually assaulted several girls during the past five years at his apartment in the 1200 block of Fleetfoot Drive, according to a criminal complaint.
According to the criminal complaint:
The suspect, who isn’t being named by Patch in order to protect the identity of the victims, touched his step-daughter and her friends on multiple occasions since 2007.
In March, the girls had a sleepover at his apartment and he had all of them take Melatonin to have them fall asleep and one of the girls told investigators she woke up to the suspect assaulting her.
The incidents came to light after another girl reported waking up to the suspect touching her during another sleepover in recent weeks and she then told her mom who reported it to police.
The suspect said he never assaulted the girl and said if he touched her it was accidental. When confronted about the other girls, he said they were all liars.
The suspect then told police he was a convicted sex offender for 1991 incidents where he touched a 4-year-old girl and masturbated onto a 7-year-old girl.
The man is charged with seven counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child less than 13 years old and faces up to 420 years in prison if convicted. He’s currently being held in Waukesha County Jail on $500,000 bail while awaiting trial.
