LA CROSSE (WKBT) — A man facing strangulation and sexual assault charges stood mute Friday, entering not guilty pleas.
25-year-old Corey Spencer appeared in court Friday. He’s charged with four felonies. Police arrested Spencer following reports of an assault June 16. Spencer pushed in an air-conditioning unit and entered his ex-girlfriend’s bedroom through the window, according to the criminal complaint. Spencer then sexually assaulted her while holding a hair trimmer against her neck as if it were a weapon, according to the complaint.
The woman told police of another incident, on June 11, when Spencer allegedly strangled her by pushing her up against a wall, causing her to lose consciousness.
Spencer was arrested at his place of work on the North Side of La Crosse.
