A man from Westchester is charged with allegedly exposing himself to two women and attempting to sexually assault a woman, prosecutors said.
Folarin Soulaude, who lives in Yonkers, was charged with burglary and sexual assault after incidents in a Nepperhan Avenue apartment building that summer when he gained access to a residence posing as a craftsman.
In particular, Soulaude, 37, was accused of:
Burglary as a sexually motivated crime, burglary, sexual abuse, public indecency.
It is believed that shortly before Wednesday June 24th, Soulaude knocked on the doors of the apartment building on Nepperhan Avenue to gain access to the homes.
Westchester District Attorney Anthony Scarpino Jr. said a woman let him into her apartment believing he was there to fix a pipe. Instead, Soulaude allegedly dropped his pants and exposed himself to the woman upon entering the house.
Scarpino said the woman screamed and fled into the hallway, with Soulaude chasing and attacking her, and pressing her against a wall. At that point he tried to take off her pants.
Another resident intervened and Soulaude fled into the building's parking garage.
It is further alleged that after Soulaude escaped into the parking garage of a woman who parked her car and called the police. Officers then arrested Soulaude without further incident.
Soulaude was charged this week and issued a temporary protection order for his victims. He is due to appear again in court on Tuesday, January 12, 2021.
