Former Boys And Girls Club Employee Sexual Assault Suspect Appears At Hearing
WASHINGTON COUNTY (KFSM) – A former Boys and Girls Club employee accused of sexually assaulting a woman at Owl Creek School in Fayetteville had his first hearing on Monday (May 4), officials say.
Gregory Wilson, 20, of Little Rock is facing charges of sexual assault and false imprisonment, according to jail records. Those same records state his bond was set at $10,000, and his next hearing is scheduled for June 1 at 7:45 a.m.
According to an arrest report, the sexual assault was reported to police at about 6 p.m. on Thursday (April 30). The victim told officers she was cleaning up a classroom when Wilson began making sexual comments and touching her inappropriately, the report states. She told the suspect to stop each time, but Wilson continued to touch her in various places on her body, police said.
When the victim tried to leave the room, Wilson chased her and forced her onto a table, the report states. As the woman struggled, the two fell off the table, and she began to crawl toward the door while screaming for help. Wilson pulled her back into the room by her leg, according to police. The suspect again touched the victim inappropriately and put his hand over her mouth, telling her to be quiet, the report states.
The victim was eventually able to free herself from Wilson and ran to the teachers’ lounge where custodial staff stopped him, according to the report. Wilson fled the scene before police arrived, authorities said.
When investigators interviewed Wilson on Friday (May 1), he admitted to touching the victim inappropriately even though she told him to stop, police said. He denied the other allegations, according to the report.
The arrest report states Wilson worked at the Boys and Girls Club. The Donald W. Reynolds Boys and Girls Club in Fayetteville is down the street from Owl Creek School, but it’s unclear if the suspect worked at that particular location.
The Boys and Girls Club released a statement saying Wilson’s employment has been terminated, and he is prohibited from accessing the organization and any of its operations.
