A 22-year-old Rockford, IL, man is accused of sexually assaulting a Muskego teenager after going to a concert with her family on April 20, according to a criminal complaint filed in Waukesha County Circuit Court.
Gene C. Grey was charged Wednesday with sexual assault of a child. If convicted, he faces up to 25 years initial confinement in prison and $100,000 fines.
Grey was investigated by the Muskego Police Department after a woman and her 15-year-old daughter reported the sexual assault. The teenage girl told police officers she woke up to find Grey on top of her. She said she was confused from just waking up but she told Grey she was tired and didn’t want the sexual contact to happen, according to the criminal complaint.
But Grey continued the sexual contact and raped her, the girl told police, according to the complaint.
The girl's mother told police she was returning home from dropping Grey off at his college in Illinois when he sent a text message to the girl’s phone, saying “you were awesome,” according to the complaint.
The girl's mother called Grey to confront him and he told her he was sorry. Grey later sent her a text message, according to the complaint, saying, “I made a mistake I can’t take back. Even though we both agreed, I knew it was wrong.”
A Muskego detective tried to contact Grey with no success. Rockford College security told the detective Grey moved out of his residence hall and dropped out of classes on April 24, the complaint states.
A warrant has been issued for Grey’s arrest.
