ELKHORN—A man is accused of stealing a car, running near the UW-Whitewater campus naked and attempting to sexually assault a woman who gave him clothes, all while high on acid, according to a criminal complaint.

Chidiebele P. Ozodi, 20, of South Milwaukee, is charged in Walworth County Court with felonies attempted second-degree sexual assault and operating a vehicle without owner consent and misdemeanor disorderly conduct, according to the complaint.

At about 5:41 p.m. Oct. 4, Whitewater police responded to reports of a black Mitsubishi hitting a tree on Starin Road, according to the complaint. Dispatchers had advised police the driver, later identified as Ozodi, was naked and punching parked cars after fleeing on foot.

Ozodi was then found running near the intramural fields on the UW-Whitewater campus, where he had pushed to the ground a female who gave him shorts and a T-shirt and told her he was going to rape her, according to the complaint. He then pushed her down and attempted to put his body on top of her before the woman and a nearby man were able to pull him off.

The woman told police she saw Ozodi walking between cars in the parking lot near the apartments on Harmony Lane and asked him what was wrong with him, according to the complaint. He told her he was "tripping on acid."

Ozodi told police he had taken two tablets of acid, according to the complaint.

When Ozodi saw police, he sprinted away onto the intramural fields, according to the complaint. At the middle of the field, he pulled down his pants and began to masturbate.

Police drew a Taser and ordered Ozodi to lay down, according to the complaint. He complied and was transported to Fort Atkinson Hospital. 

While at the hospital, Ozodi told a nurse to perform sexual acts on him and said "there is a baby coming out of me," according to the complaint.

Ozodi knew the owner of the black Mitsubishi, but the owner told police she had not given Ozodi permission to take it, according to the complaint. Ozodi frequently stays at the same apartment as the car owner.

Ozodi is next due in court at 2 p.m. Monday, Nov. 7, for a preliminary hearing.
