Burlington Man Accused of Sexual Assault on a A Co-worker
A Burlington man is accused of fourth-degree sexual assault of a co-worker.
On March 14, the Racine County Sheriff’s Department was dispatched to the Burlington Police Department to meet with the victim regarding the sexual assault.
According to the criminal complaint, the victim stated that over the last week her co-worker, who has been identified as Kevin Tess, had been touching her inappropriately. According to the victim, on March 4, Tess offered to give her a ride home from work, which was not unusual because they had carpooled previously. During the ride, the victim stated that Tess offered her a vibrator. When she refused, Tess attempted to shove the vibrator between her legs. The victim told him to stop multiple times.
According to the criminal complaint, once he stopped, Tess then forcibly grabbed the victim's hand and placed it on his inner thigh. The victim stated that he moved her hand up and down inappropriately. The victim stated she tried to pull her hand away but Tess would hold her hand tighter. According to the victim, Tess then told her not to tell anyone what happened.
The incident occurred around the area of STH-142 in the Village of Waterford.
Tess will have his pre-trial conference on April 13 in Racine County.
