THE FOLLOWING IS INFORMATION FROM THE WILMINGTON POLICE DEPARTMENT:
Time: 3:15 a.m. – Friday morning
Location: 100 Betten Court (alley)
Offense: 1st degree sex offense
Summary: While on routine patrol, officers discovered a 24-year-old man in the alley behind Slice of Life and Ibiza. He was naked except for a trash bag wrapped around his waist, and he appeared to be urinating on a vehicle in the parking lot.
Initially, the victim, who was intoxicated, did not want to talk about what had happened because he said he was afraid a family member would find out.
After further questioning, he said had been sexually assaulted in the alley by a man he had met in the bar. He said the two men had performed consensual sex acts on each other earlier in the evening in a restroom inside the bar, but he said the second incident (outside in the alley) was forced.
The scene was processed for evidence and the victim was taken to the ER for evidence collection there. The case remains under investigation.
