- An alleged aggravated assault and vandalism charge on an individual could be linked to an alleged aggravated burglary and sexual assault at a Kelley Street address last week.
Cleveland Police Department Criminal Investigations Division detective Steve Ross is assigned both cases.
According to Ross, the alleged offender of the aggravated burglary and sexual assault has been established as the suspect who filed a complaint after he was assaulted the next evening at a convenience store.
Officer Travis Graig’s report noted the female victim, who lived at the Kelley Street address, was awakened when she heard someone in her apartment.
The victim got up and confronted a man wearing a ski-mask and who had socks on his hands, reports said.
Ross indicated the suspect had a piece of electronic equipment in his hands and struck the female victim in the face.
The victim reportedly fended off the assault, which turned into a sexual assault.
That incident reportedly occurred one week ago today.
Officer Josh West was called to Fish Creek Market in reference to a fight call.
The alleged victim had locked himself in the restroom of the store and was in that room when officers arrived, according to the report.
He stated six or seven male and females came to his residence on Harper Street, reportedly accusing him of the alleged sexual assault/home invasion, which had happened the day before, according to the report.
One of the group allegedly assaulted the man, who fled the scene to the market nearby.
The alleged assault continued inside the market and several retail items were reportedly damaged during the scuffle.
Investigation into both incidents is continuing, according to Ross.
The female victim of the burglary and assault incident was injured and treated at a local hospital.
