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.
