With clowns in the news and more people on edge fearing assault and attacks, it’s not surprising that an area that had an alleged clown sighting has also reported a sexual assault near the Texas State University campus. When there are threats to public safety, it’s possible for people to get caught up in emotion, which may not be the case this time, but certainly could be the case for your situation. Because of the right of people getting emotional and making false accusations and reports, it’s always important to defend yourself and exercise your right to an attorney if you’re arrested on accusations of sexual assault.
Texas State Police arrested a suspect in connection to a reported sexual assault at a local apartment complex. The police reported that the man, a 27-year-old, was arrested on the Texas State University campus following claims of the assault; the report didn’t indicate if any evidence was found against the man other than the report itself.
The assault allegedly took place just before 11 a.m. at the Bobcat Village Apartments, the same place where a student claimed she was grabbed by someone dressed up as a clown. The police have made it clear that this man’s arrest wasn’t related to that incident, though it was in the same general area.
The Hays County Jail records show that the man has been charged with felony sexual assault, but police have not released any information on why he’s been arrested as a suspect or if evidence of the assault has been presented in this case.
