Milwaukee, WI - On Friday, Milwaukee police arrested a 32-year-old male suspect who allegedly attempted to sexually assault a woman walking on the sidewalk by the Snails Crossing Park and playground at the 3200 block of N. Bremen St. on December 12 in the Riverwest neighborhood.
Police say, the suspect forced the woman into the park, then struck her several times and attempted to sexually assault her. She resisted, managed to scream and the suspect fled after people came to her aid.
The suspect was identified through DNA, according to police. The suspect around 2:30 p.m. on Friday was located by police at a residence in the 2600 block of N. 48th Street. The suspect jumped out from a window and tried to elude police, but a Milwaukee Police K9 dog chased the suspect, caught up with him and bit the suspect to restrain him. The suspect was taken to a local hospital and treated for injuries. Multiple felony charges are pending against the suspect, according to police.
The day after her brutal attack by the 32-year-old suspect, Colin Acumen, 25, in her Facebook account posted a photo of herself in a hospital bed directly giving the "Bird" (middle finger), as a defiant statement to the suspect who brutally assaulted her and attempted to rape her that December night. She wrote, "Guess who didn't get raped last night? This woman right here."
Acumen suffered four lacerations in the back of her head requiring 15 staples, ten stiches in her noise, six stiches in her lip and damage to her two front teeth, which will eventually have to be pulled. In her last posting on December 22, Acumen wrote that she is healing and the staples have been removed, fracture bones are healing and was expected go through several surgeries.
Acumen acknowledged those (heroes) who heard her screams for help and came to her aid.
Acumen is part of the Milton Kings, a Burlesque and Draglesque performing and entertainment show in the Milwaukee area.Direct donations for Colin Acumen's medical expenses at link: http://www.gofundme.com/j2d20k
