March 13, 2012 | 04:40 PMA 17-year-old Lake Geneva boy, who was free on a sexual assault charge, faces a felony bail jumping charge after he allegedly ran away from a police officer.
Charlie Najera-Diaz, 812 Madison St., also was charged with misdemeanor obstructing an officer.
If convicted of all counts, Najera-Diaz faces up to 46 years and nine months imprisonment and $120,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint on the sexual assault charge:
On Aug. 26, a city of Lake Geneva police officer spoke to a 16-year-old girl who reported the assault, which had taken place three days earlier.
The victim said she went to a residence that was under construction with several other juveniles and Najera-Diaz.
The victim said she left the residence to go outside to use the bathroom, and, as she was going to the bathroom, Najera-Diaz appeared in front of her.
She attempted to pull up her pants and underwear up but he stopped her. The victim said Najera-Diaz forced her to have sex and during the assault she struggled to get away from him.
According to the bail jumping charge:
On Feb. 22, police went to a residence on Highway 50, after receiving a complaint of erratic behavior from Najera-Diaz. When an officer entered the residence, he observed Najera-Diaz flee on foot.
Police eventually located Najera-Diaz, who said he ran because he doesn't like the officer.
