Milwaukee man faces charges for alleged gang rape
MILWAUKEE -- 19-year-old Xavier Wilkes faces several criminal charges for allegedly being involved in the gang rape of a Milwaukee woman on August 18, 2013. Police reports say Wilkes used his gun to threaten a woman before forcing her to engage in sexual acts with himself and his friends.
According to the criminal complaint, a woman with initials of C.M.J. drove her friend identified as A.I.J. to the 1400 block of S. 26th St. in Milwaukee. A.I.J. left the car and told C.M.J. to wait in the car for her. That's when C.M.J. told police Wilkes got into her car, and showed off his gun when she tried to reach for her cell phone and wallet.
C.M.J. told police Wilkes stole $15 from her wallet. She says Wilkes exposed his private parts, and said, "Come on!" She refused and he said they'd just wait for A.I.J.
According to testimony from C.M.J., Wilkes walked off with A.I.J. when she returned to the car. He allegedly showed off the gun in his waistband to intimidate A.I.J. Wilkes allegedly walked A.I.J. to the alley behind a home on the 2500 block of Orchard St.
A.I.J told police Wilkes and his friends threatened to hurt her if she didn't engage in sexual acts with them. She also says the men fled the scene as soon as her friend called police using an old cell phone in her car.
When police arrived, they found A.I.J. was attempting to put her clothes back on. She told officers she had been raped by a group of black males, and pointed out the direction they fled.
Wilkes is charged with two counts of Armed Robbery, Attempted First Degree Sexual Assault, Kidnapping, and First Degree Sexual Assault(Use of a dangerous weapon).
If found guilty of all charges, Wilkes faces a sentence of up to 210 years in prison.
