Man Charged in Assault of Student

A 31-year-old registered sex offender was charged last week with sexually assaulting a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student in her apartment last month, authorities said. The woman said she tried to call 911 when he entered her apartment, but he knocked the phone from her hand and sexually assaulted her. According to the report, the man held a sharp object against the woman's body as he assaulted her.

He is also charged with two other assault and stalking cases that occurred in 2009 involving a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old girl. The man is a licensed real estate agent who practices under a different name, reports say, but the company he worked for recently terminated his employment.
