MENOMONIE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A reported case of stalking and sexual assault earlier this month has a Menomonie man facing charges in Eau Claire County Court.
The complaint was filed against 28-year-old Larry Young. He’s free tonight on a one-thousand-dollar cash bond.
Authorities allege young was driving along water street on March 17 when he offered a woman a ride to her hotel. He claimed her friends asked him to pick her up.
The Eau Claire Police Department says young then drove the victim to a secluded location where he choked her and sexually assaulted her.
Officers made contact with young during the weekend in the downtown and water street areas of Eau Claire.
Young told authorities he was going to give the victim a ride to her hotel at her request.
He denied the assault.
