Man sexually assaulted woman while in Chicago from Michigan for friend's birthday, prosecutors say

A Michigan man in Chicago over the weekend to celebrate a friend’s birthday with several other friends sexually assaulted one of the women in their group when she was passed out at a downtown hotel, prosecutors said Monday.

In a hearing before Cook County Judge Michael Clancy, Tyler Wilkin, 23, was ordered held in lieu of $100,000 bail in the criminal sexual assault of the 23-year-old woman.

Wilkin is from Holton, Mich., northeast of Muskegon, according to court records. Wilkin, the woman, a female friend, the friend’s fiance and his brother drove to Chicago from Michigan on Friday to celebrate the best friend’s birthday, prosecutors said.

The group went out Friday and then stayed in the same room at a Loop hotel, with the women sleeping on a bed together, prosecutors said. On Saturday, the group went out again, then went back to the hotel to nap, with the woman and Wilkin sharing a bed.

During the weekend, the woman told Wilkin that she didn’t want to have a relationship with him, prosecutors said.

Saturday night, the women and Wilkin went to a bar or club, and both Wilkin and the woman’s friend bought the woman drinks and shots of alcohol until she became intoxicated. About 4:30 a.m., they went back to the hotel room.

The woman lay down on one of the beds and fell asleep with her clothes on, while her friend and the friend’s fiance fell asleep on the other bed and the fiance’s brother slept on the floor, prosecutors said.

Later, the woman woke up to find that some of her clothes were off and Wilkin was sexually assaulting her, prosecutors said. The woman yelled for her friend, who was in the bathroom with the fiance, and the friend stayed with the woman while the two men took Wilkin out of the room.

Wilkin at first denied sexually assaulting the woman, but then admitted to the other men that he had taken off her clothes and had sex with her, prosecutors said.

Police were called, and when Wilkin was arrested, he admitted he knew the woman was intoxicated when he sexually assaulted her, prosecutors said. Investigators were able to collect corroborating evidence in the hotel room, and he was charged with criminal sexual assault of a person unable to consent, prosecutors said.

Wilkin’s attorney said he is a high school graduate who works for a company that installs and maintains irrigation systems and wells.
