North Carolina woman accused of sexually assaulting male cable worker

U.S. & World

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (WCMH) – A North Carolina woman is accused of forcing a cable technician to engage in sexual activity, according to an arrest warrant.

Mildred Newsome, 47, is charged with two counts of second-degree forced sex offense and one count of misdemeanor sexual battery, the Fayetteville Observer reported.

The incident happened last month while the victim was working in Newsome’s apartment. She was arrested after a month-long investigation.

The victim, a man in his 30s, told police that when the work was about done, Newsome approached him, took his hand and placed it on her breast.

“He stated ‘no’ and attempted to resist these actions, but she continued,” Sgt. Shawn Strepay of the Fayetteville Police Department told the Charlotte Observer.

According to an arrest warrant, she forced him to engage in two sex acts.

“We have emphasized that he did report it immediately after the incident. He went back to the Spectrum Center and called us,” said Strepay.

Newsome allegedly threatened to say that the man was the aggressor if he told police, according to Strepay.

“A lot of people are of the mind that a man cannot be sexually assaulted or could have done something to stop it,” he said. “That’s not true.”
