Mount Pleasant police say a 52-year-old Kenosha man touched, grabbed and groped patrons at a haunted house over the weekend, and now he’s facing sex assault charges.
Daniel Rosmann was charged Monday in Racine County Circuit Court with three misdemeanor counts of 4th degree sexual assault and one misdemeanor count each of disorderly conduct and lewd and lascivious behavior. If convicted of all charges, he faces up to 39 months in jail and/or up to $41,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint, officers were called Sunday to the Abandoned Haunted House, 2825 South East Frontage Road, for a report of assault. When police arrived, they met with security who had Rosmann detained.
Officers say three visitors who were going through the haunted house each said that Rosmann had touched, grabbed or groped them. A woman said that Rosmann grabbed her behind; one man said Rosmann approached him from behind and “humped him aggressively;” and another man said Rosmann grabbed his head and forced it down into Rosmann’s crotch.
Haunted House management told police that other patrons had reported unwelcome attention from Rosmann. When the defendant exited the haunted house, he was detained until police arrived, the complaint reads.
Rosmann remains in the Racine County Jail on a $500 cash bond. He will next be in court on Dec. 4 for a pre-trial conference.
