Bemidji Man Charged With Sexually Assaulting Mentally Impaired Woman

Posted: Updated:

  It was a Super Bowl party that went horribly wrong.

  Twenty-three year old David Neumann of Bemidji has been charged with sexually assaulting a mentally impaired woman. Neumann faces one count of 3rd degree sexual assault, which carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

  According to court records, it happened Super Bowl Sunday at a Bemidji residence. Police received a report of sexual assault from a woman being examined at Sanford Hospital's Emergency room.

  A mentally impaired woman told police that following a Super Bowl party at a friend's home, she laid down on the couch to sleep. She says then, David Neumann also laid down on the couch and sexually assaulted here. The woman told police that she pretended she was sleeping, because she knew David Neumann always carried a knife and she was scared.

 David Neumann was then arrested at a Bemidji apartment. Police confiscated his belt buckle, which was actually a knife.

Neumann told police he had been drinking at the party, blacked out and that he didn't have sex with anyone. The case still awaits the judgment of the court.      

Woman, Sexual Assault Exam Training Video: "It's best practice to offer to contact a local sexual assault advocate for the victim…."

 Experts, say it's unfortunate, but predators often target women, who are mentally impaired.

Faye Kihne, GF Community Violence Intervention Center: "Often look for individuals that are at a vulnerable place. There's less opportunity they may report it. There's less opportunity they might fight back."

  Kihne says in order to prevent having more victims, the community should focus on the predators… and teaching   sexual respect.

  Meanwhile, David Neumann has posted bail and is out of the jail. He's scheduled to appear in court next week.
