Waukesha police investigate possible sex assault
Man and woman apparently had sadomasochistic sex prior to Oct. 12 incident, police say
Waukesha City Police are investigating a potential sex assault that allegedly took place over the weekend.
According to the dispatch log, police were dispatched at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12 to an apartment complex at 1000 Pewaukee Road after receiving reports of an alleged sexual assault in progress.
A 21-year-old woman had apparently called a friend and reported that she was being raped in her apartment, the dispatch log states. The friend then called 911.
Police found in the apartment building a woman who had been handcuffed to a chair, Capt. Ron Oremus said. The suspect, a 49-year-old apartment manager, had allegedly fled the scene, but was later found by police in the apartment complex.
The man was "very drunk," Oremus said, and was not being cooperative. He also had a knife in his possession, the captain said.
Police fired several nonlethal, plastic bullets at the man in order to get him to comply with commands, Oremus said, and he was eventually taken into custody.
Oremus said that the man and the woman had apparently engaged in sadomasochistic sex before the Oct. 12 incident.
"While the handcuffs seem unusual, this was not the first time they were used," Oremus said.
Police found in the apartment a "sex kit" that contained a whip, ball gag and the handcuffs allegedly used in the assault.
The woman had told police that she had previously ended the relationship with the man and the sex was not consensual, Oremus said.
Police believe the man entered the woman's apartment using a management key.
Oremus said that the man is currently being held on a probation violation, having been convicted in February of resisting or obstructing an officer.
"We are probably not going to refer charges until we have a better chance to look at (the incident)," Oremus said.
