WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington man spent his birthday behind bars after being arrested yesterday.
Oscar Castro, 24, appeared in court today after he was arrested last night on multiple charges including sexual battery.
Police reports say Castro pulled in to the Wimbledon Chase apartment complex, began calling out to two women near the pool and when neither of them came to his vehicle, he got out and grabbed one of the victims’ breasts. Reports say after the assault two men came over from the pool to help, before Castro got back in his car and drove off.
After police arrived and began talking with the victims, Castro came back to the parking lot. When police told him to stop, they say Castro cursed at them and kept driving before hitting the back of a patrol car and taking off again.
Officers pursued him toward Varsity Drive, where he finally stopped, but refused to obey verbal commands. Police say Castro continued yelling at them until they tased him and took him into custody.
He made his first appearance today charged with sexual battery, hit and run, failure to stop for blue lights and sirens and resisting arrest.
Castro declined our request for a jailhouse interview.
