Eric V. Lewis kept interrupting a 24-year-old woman and man who were having sex that he'd been partying with.

The woman had been drinking heavily with a man we'll call Witness No. 1

and her neighbors in the 5500 block of Paloma. That's when Lewis came over, and he was clearly intoxicated.

The woman didn't know how much

she drank but it was "enough to render her incapacitated." So when

everyone was "slowing down," she decided to take a bath and fell asleep

in the tub. Witness No. 1 found her asleep in the tub, took her to her bed and they had consensual sex -- that's when they got an unwanted visitor.



Lewis walked in and shone a light, which he claimed he was just trying to take the guy a can of beer. The woman told Lewis to get out, and he left.

But Lewis went back in, said he was going to make a liquor store run. Did they want anything? They didn't.

The woman told police that she passed out while Witness No. 1 was having sex with her and later woke up thinking Witness No. 1 was doing something sexually to her. He wasn't.

The woman told police that she reached down and touched a penis,

which she said belonged to Lewis, who she said was behind her on the

bed. She felt her vaginal area, which was wet.

The woman and Witness No. 1 told Lewis to get out. Lewis didn't appear

to be leaving fast enough so the woman grabbed a bottle of hot sauce and

threw it at him.

Witness No. 1 told police that he woke up to the woman's head

hitting his chin. He asked the woman what she was doing but she appeared

to be still sleeping.

Lewis may not have been in the clearest frame of mind. He would later

tell police that on top of the several beers that he drank, he'd also

smoked marijuana and PCP earlier in the day.

Lewis told police that everyone in the neighborhood hangs out and

has a good time on the "Paloma block."  He said everyone was getting

"toasty" drinking beers that night.

So why did he go into the room while

the woman and Witness No. 1 were having sex? He claimed he wanted to give Witness No. 1 a beer and later went back

for the beer. He claimed that when he reached for the beer, the woman

grabbed it and then his penis, which he claimed she rubbed underneath

his pants. Then she grabbed it and rubbed it against her leg. Lewis

denied ever being on the bed or having sexual intercourse

with the woman.

Lewis, 35, is charged with attempted sexual assault.
