Fairmont man accused of sexually assaulting teenage girl multiple times


Fairmont Police arrested a man accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl on three occasions.

On March 19, officers were notified of a sexual assault on East Park Avenue.  Police told the mother of a 14-year-old girl to take the girl to United Hospital Center for a medical evaluation, according to a criminal complaint.

On March 22, the girl took part in a forensic interview at the Child Advocacy Center.  During the interview, the girl said Leslie Williams Jr., 29, of Fairmont, sexually assaulted her on March 12, police said.  The girl said she woke up when Williams pulled down her pants and started to have sex with her.  The girl told Williams “no” during the incident, which Williams ignored, according to a criminal complaint.

The girl added that Williams sexually assaulted her two other times in the preceding months, according to police.  The girl stated that on Thanksgiving 2018, Williams had sex with her, and she was afraid to tell anyone about the incident, according to a criminal complaint.

Further, the girl said in December 2018, Williams forced her to have sex, according to police.

During the forensic interview, the girl said Williams routinely threatened her not to tell anyone about the sexual assaults, according to a criminal complaint.

Williams is charged with three counts each of second degree sexual assault and sexual abuse by a parent, guardian, custodian or a person in a position of trust to a child.
