Lansing man charged with sex crime and immigration violation

Some sex crime charges are based on circumstantial evidence or hearsay. Calls to 911 in Lansing are often after an assault has taken place and the alleged perpetrator has fled. In very few instances does the assault victim call 911 and have the police respond while the alleged act is still in progress.

According to news sources, a 32-year-old Lansing man is facing several charges including first and second-degree criminal sexual assault, unlawful imprisonment and interfering with electronic communications. In addition, the Department of Homeland Security is holding the 32-year-old on an immigration detainer.

The charges stem from an incident that is reported to have taken place at a Charlie Kang's restaurant. The police received two 911 calls from a female saying that she needed help, and giving the address of the restaurant.

When police at the scene at 10:48 at night, they discovered a back door unlocked. When they entered, they heard the voice of a woman calling for help. The voice came from a restroom. When they entered, the police report that they found the 32-year-old man naked and standing over a partially clothed woman.

The 32-year-old was arrested at the scene of the incident and has been held over pending charges. It was not stated whether or not the man resisted, or what his mental state might have been at the time of the arrest.

Often investigations lead away from an initial assumption and towards another conclusion entirely. Was there a misunderstanding based on language issues? Could the man have been suffering from some sort of mental imbalance? Anything is possible and this man is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
