Man Sexually Assault Mentally Challenged Man
Sexual assault can sadly happen anywhere and anytime. Anyone could be a sexual predator, sad part is that most of the time people never get the slightest hint that someone is like that until it’s too late.
According to a news report a Phoenix man had recently been arrested for the sexual assault of a twenty year old mentally challenged man. How sad and cruel is this world? Who could do that to someone?
According to the investigating police officers, the investigation began in February of 2015. It started when fifty year old William Patrick Unger is the one who lured the mentally disabled man into the back seat of his vehicle and then began his assault on him.
Police say that the terrible incident happened just outside of a group home, where the sexual assault victim lived. The man told the staff, who quickly contacted the police.
Reports show that two members that are with the group home actually saw the activity in the car, however they just thought the two men were playing.
Suspect Drives Away from Assault Scene
Unger drove away from the scene. He was luckily found not long, around six weeks after the incident.
The court papers say that Unger denied any sexual contact with the man at first. However, he later admitted that he did it, but he did claim that the victim was the actual aggressor.
From April court documents, they say that Unger failed to show up for the court ordered polygraph as well as DNA test. Must be hiding something if he’s trying to skip out on all the test that could prove he was innocent or probably guilty in this case.
The man was found near 33rd Avenue and Van Buren. He was of course booked into jail on sexual assault and kidnapping. The man’s bond was set at $100,000.
