The Waukesha County authorities recently declared that 19-year-old individual was recently charged with false imprisonment, use of a lethal weapon, and first-degree sexual assault after he threatened to kill a woman who refused to eat the grilled cheese sandwich he prepared. The victim managed to escape her aggressor and to contact the police. The individual is being held on a $5,000 bond.
Justin Hastings of Wisconsin has recently been apprehended and charged with false imprisonment and attempted rape after threatening to kill a woman who turned down the grilled cheese Hastings cooked for her.
According to the authorities, the events leading to the man’s arrest, began on the 9th of January, when Hastings invited the woman over at his house located West Lisbon and Hampton in order to share a meal. Taking into account the woman’s testimony, it would seem that the two of them have known each other for quite some time, but there were no romantic implications.
On that day, Hastings messaged his victim over Snapchat and asked if she could join him for a meal. Upon her arrival, Hastings was already in the kitchen preparing the meal. The woman asked him for a grilled cheese sandwich, which Hastings prepared.
However, upon turning down the meal, Hastings allegedly got mad and drew out the gun he was concealing in his pocket. Hastings pressed the weapon against the woman’s forehead and threatened to kill her.
Before she was able to escape, the woman declared that Hastings attempted to rape her and, on more than one occasion, blocked the door. Fortunately, the woman managed to get out in time and to notify the local law enforcement authorities. Hastings was immediately arrested and charged with first-degree sexual assault, using a dangerous weapon, and false imprisonment.
However, there’s another side to this story. As Hastings recalls, he indeed got mad at the woman who refused to eat the grilled sandwich he prepared and, in order to teach her a lesson, he drew out a pellet gun with the magazine emptied and pressed it against her forehead. Moreover, Hastings said that he emptied the gun in front of the victim and that he made no attempts to rape her.
The man also said that after threatening her with the gun, the woman started laughing manically, and taunted him into pulling the trigger. Hastings is not being held on a $5,000 cash bond, awaiting his trial.
