Three felony charges for man who allegedly assaulted pregnant woman

Friday, August 23, 2013 - 6:18 am

A Fort Wayne man has been charged with three felonies in connection with an alleged sexual assault on a woman.

Samuel Nevarez, 29, is charged with Class B felony burglary, Class B felony criminal deviate conduct and Class D felony sexual battery, according to documents filed Thursday in Allen Superior Court.

The probable-cause affidavit in the case alleges that Nevarez allegedly entered a home around 1:26 a.m. on Aug. 17 and got into bed with an 18-year-old woman who was sleeping.

The woman, who is six months pregnant, woke up but thought the person was her boyfriend, according to the affidavit. Nevarez allegedly touched the woman and assaulted her with his fingers before the woman realized he was not her boyfriend. The woman fled from the bedroom, screaming.

Nevarez was detained by other family members until police arrived, according to the affidavit, with no one in the home saying they knew who he was or how he gained entry.
