A teen was arrested on a charge of sexual assault after allegedly trying to rape a woman during a party while his mother was present, according to the police in Wisconsin.
Plymouth police said that they have arrested 19-year-old Anthony J. Zingale, after being accused of walking into a bathroom, pulling down his pants and trying to rape a woman.
Zingale has been charged with one count of first-degree sexual assault and one count of carrying a concealed weapon. He was booked into the Sheboygan County Detention Center.
If convicted, he could face up to 40 years in prison.
The woman told police that while she was using the bathroom at the home, the teen came in with a knife while exposing himself from the waist down.
He put the knife to her throat and said that he would cut her if she does not have sex with him. She was able to persuade him to leave the bathroom, and she then screamed for help.
Zingale told police a different story. On Saturday around 10:30 p.m., he got drunk at the party despite the fact that his mother was present.
At some point, he had to use the bathroom, but was embarrassed because the woman was inside. When he pulled down his pants, the woman grabbed the knife he brought into the bathroom and threatened him.
