A Hamlet, Indiana man faces numerous felony charges for an attempted sexual assault from over the weekend. LaPorte Police report the victim informed officers she let 48 year old William McGrath, whom she recently met, sleep at her home early Sunday morning, in the five-hundred block of 3rd Street, because he said he was too intoxicated to drive. Police say later that morning, when she was preparing to leave the residence, McGrath allegedly physically assaulted her and threatened to kill her if she did not have sex with him. The woman was able to leave the residence and informed police of what had allegedly transpired. McGrath is charged with attempted rape, two-counts of sexual battery and intimidation.
