Eau Claire man accused of setting fire, assaulting woman
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) - An Eau Claire man is accused of setting his apartment on fire and then sexually assaulting a woman who came to check on his welfare.
Fifty-six-year-old Wesley Halliday is charged in Eau Claire County with endangering safety, fourth-degree sexual assault, battery and bail jumping.
A criminal complaint says Halliday started a fire in the apartment Monday by burning papers at his stove. A woman who has a key for all the apartments in the building told police she entered the apartment and saw Halliday burning papers. She says he pushed her against a wall and assaulted her.
The woman ran away and called for help. The Leader-Telegram says Halliday apologized for grabbing the woman and said he was sick and not doing well.
