11 News has obtained court records revealing more details about a man accused of sexual assault. One victim claims he went to a nightclub, but woke up in a bathtub being bathed by a stranger.
29-year-old Oliver Newell is accused of sexually assaulting 3 men and a 14-year-old boy in his Colorado Springs home. Newell is being held on several charges including second degree kidnapping, sexual assault and sexual assault on a child.
In the 9 page arrest affidavit, victims tell police what Oliver Newell allegedly did to them at his home. According to the report, many of the victims somehow lost consciousness and that's when they say Newell would sexually assault them.
Back in July 2006, one victim says he doesn't remember leaving a Colorado Springs nightclub, but he claims he woke up wearing only his underwear in a bedroom with a stranger sexually assaulting him. The victim's friend also claims to have been in the house. He says he woke up with someone bathing him in the bathtub. The court documents say the accusers left in a cab and the driver claims he took them to quote the "barracks at the Air Force Academy.” The documents don't spell out if that's where the accusers live.
In a separate incident, a 14-year-old boy says he called “Live Links”, a phone chat-line. The victim says the female on the phone asked if he wanted to come party with her. The documents say Newell then picked up the 14-year-old and sexually assaulted him in the shower.
Police suspect there are more male victims out there who haven't come forward. Clinical Psychologist Dr. Raymond Hill says, "It's the pride, which is the fault of men. They get self-conscious and embarrassed if challenged." He says it's important for victims to tell the police, to keep others from falling prey.
Newell will be back in court next week. If convicted, he could face years behind bars.
