The Milwaukee Police Department said that they have arrested 41-year-old Michael Birk, after being accused of raping the sleeping woman.

Birk has been charged with sexual assault while armed, robbery and false imprisonment. He was booked into jail, and his bail has been set at $100,000.

According to the police investigation, Birk is married and has an 8-year-old child. His wife has filed for divorce after allegedly finding him with a backpack full of women’s underwear.

She also claimed that he was a marijuana and cocaine addict.

On Thursday at around 4:00 a.m., Birk broke into a home on West Euclid Avenue. Birk went into the bedroom, where he found the sleeping woman.

The victim woke up to find Birk lying on top of her. The victim remained quiet because she was afraid for her life and her child who was sleeping in another bedroom.

Birk told the woman that he was going through a divorce and smoked marijuana. He drank some beer while sexual assaulting the woman.

He left the home along with the victim’s phone and wallet. The woman then woke up her son, who called the police.
