ELKHORN—A man pleaded not guilty to charges he stole a car, ran naked near the UW-Whitewater campus and attempted to sexually assault a woman who gave him clothes, all while high on acid.
Chidiebele P. Ozodi, 20, of South Milwaukee, pleaded not guilty to felonies attempted second-degree sexual assault and operating a vehicle without owner consent and misdemeanor disorderly conduct, according to the criminal complaint filed in Walworth County Court.
On Oct. 4, Whitewater police responded to a report of a car hitting a tree on Starin Road. The driver, later identified as Ozodi, left on foot and began punching parked cars while naked, according to the complaint.
Ozodi forced himself on top of a woman who gave him shorts and a T-shirt and told her he was going to rape her before the woman and a nearby man were able to get him off, according to the complaint.
Ozodi told police he had taken two tablets of acid.
Ozodi is next due in court at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 1 for a final pretrial hearing.
