A 24-year-old man is alleged to have sexually attacked two women in separate attacks in public places within an hour Sunday morning.
Quincey Butler, of North Chicago, is being held on $100,000 after his initial court appearance Monday.
He is charged with second-degree sexual assault, attempted second-degree sexual assault, two counts of battery, two counts of disorderly conduct and false imprisonment.
According to the criminal complaint, a 42-year-old woman told Kenosha Police she was leaving Kohl’s, 7200 Green Bay Road, at about 9:40 a.m. when a man she did not know followed her to her vehicle and began to talk to her, making her uncomfortable.
As she got in her car and tried to close her door, she told police, the man forced open her door, pulled her forcefully from the truck and pulled down his pants and began rubbing against her foot.
She told police she was screaming “stop” and “help” and that she heard some women yelling at the man to stop.
She said he got up “pulled up his pants and casually walked away.”
About an hour later, police were called to a BP Gas Station, 12120 75th St., for a report that a man had attacked a woman in a bathroom.
The 54-year-old woman said she had stopped at the gas station so her grandson could use the bathroom. The woman said she was standing outside the men’s bathroom while her grandson was inside.
She said while she was waiting, a man later identified as Butler came toward the bathroom. She asked him to wait to go in because her grandson was in the bathroom, and she then went into the bathroom with her other grandchild to check on the grandson.
According to the criminal complaint, the woman said the man followed her into the bathroom, grabbed her and forced her to the ground, causing her head to strike the concrete floor.
She said the man pinned her to the ground while her grandchildren, ages 10 and 8, locked themselves in a stall.
“She began screaming, and within a minute another female customer rushed into the bathroom and pulled the subject off of her,” the complaint states.
The man was seen leaving in a maroon car.
Police arrested Butler outside Johnson Bank, 7401 144th Ave.
According to the complaint, Butler had pulled into the parking lot and struck the curb, damaging the vehicle.
According to the criminal complaint, Butler first said the incidents were a misunderstanding, but then admitted “he had a foot fetish and knew what he did was wrong.”
The complaint states “he repeatedly apologized throughout the interview.”
The complaint states he was specifically looking for women who were alone.
Defense attorney Carl Johnson said Butler has no criminal history or history of arrests, has an associate’s degree and is employed with a supportive family.
“This is certainly out of the blue,” Johnson said of the allegations.
Court Commissioner Larry Keating set bond at $100,000, twice the amount requested by the state.
“These allegations are shocking, disturbing and alarming,” Keating said.
Butler is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing July 17.
