Sexual Assault in Bar Leads to Arrest: Police

Juan Monroy, who needed a interpreter in court Monday, shoved his hand into a woman's skirt and sexually assaulted her before fleeing O'Charley's Irish Tavern, Joliet police said.

A Joliet man sexually assaulted a woman in a crowded bar early Sunday morning and then nearly ran down two men trying to stop him from fleeing, Joliet police said.

Juan C. Monroy, 22, of 702 Summit, had been drinking at O'Charley's Irish Pub when he approached the victim at about 2:50 a.m., shoved his hand into the her skirt and sexually assaulted her, Cmdr. Al Roechner said. He then fled the 117 N. Center St. bar.

The incident was witnessed by several O'Charley's patrons, and the woman's boyfriend and another man ran outside in an attempt to capture him, Roechner said. Monroy, however, was already driving his minivan away from the scene and came close to striking the two men, he said.

Joliet police were able to stop Monroy and took him into custody, charging him with criminal sexual assault, reckless driving, driving under the influence of alcohol, leaving the scene and driving on a suspended license. A temporary hold has also been filed by the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

In Will County Circuit Court Monday, Monroy needed an interpreter because he spoke no English. Judge Roger Rickmon appointed a public defender and set Monroy's bond at $10,000. Even if he were able to pay the $1,000 needed for his release, Monroy would be forced to remain at the Will County jail because of the INS hold.

Monroy asked for a phone card to contact relatives in Mexico, which the judge approved.

Jax, think of it...It's the same as what you are saying...or are you just some stupid troll with diarrhea of the keyboard? Illegals are criminals plain and simple...treat them the same way that their home country would treat an illegal alien.

If he is here illegally then it's simple, -he is a criminal on that merit alone. He should be immediately deported. If he is here in violation of federal laws, and also breaking state and local ordinances, he should be immediately deported. See how simple this is? "Illegal" -it's a pretty simple concept.

Commit a crime like this and you should receive a one way ticket home as your compensation, in cuffs too. Overcrowding people's partially solved
