WARSAW — A Warsaw man is facing charges after allegedly touching a female inappropriately.
Samuel Davis, Jr., 44, 422 Sophie Lane, Warsaw, is being charged with sexual battery, a level 6 felony.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, officers with the Warsaw Police Department spoke with a female who advised that she, her husband and a minor female were at another female’s home and that Davis Jr. was also at that residence.
The female victim advised that her husband was cooking and that she and Davis Jr. were sitting at a table. She said Davis Jr. used his foot to rub her legs, thigh and the area between her legs through the outside of her clothing, making her feel very uncomfortable. The victim stated she repeatedly told him to stop but he continued.
She told officers she called for her husband to come into the room but was afraid to tell him what happened because she feared that her husband would batter Davis Jr.
The victim said her husband asked her to go to the gas station to purchase cigarettes. She advised she was going to drive Davis Jr.’s vehicle, but Davis Jr. would not let her use the vehicle unless he went along.
According to the victim, she arranged for her friend, the minor female, to go along to the gas station to protect her. While at the gas station, the victim and Davis Jr. obtained items and then walked back to the vehicle while the minor female was still inside the gas station.
The victim said Davis Jr. used his hand to touch her between her legs on the outside of her clothing and began talking sexually to her. She stated she continually told him to stop, but he continued touching her and did not stop until the minor female returned to the vehicle.
Police spoke with the minor female, who said she observed Davis Jr. hitting on the female victim. She said she saw Davis Jr. attempting to hold the victim’s hand and being very touchy with the victim.
Davis Jr. was booked at the Kosciusko County Jail June 12 on a $5,950 surety and cash bond.
