Menasha man arrested in Scandinavia
A Menasha man is accused of stealing $900 in cash and sexually assaulting a Scandinavia woman after spending the night at her home.
Lamar M. Campbell, 28, is charged in Waupaca County Circuit Court with robbery by use of force, second-degree sexual assault by violence, misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct.
At 10 a.m. Friday, July 24, a woman called 911 and reported seeing another woman standing outside her home in Scandinavia, screaming for help.
Waupaca County deputies arrived on the scene and reported that the woman had a bite mark on her right breast that was bleeding and bruised.
The 22-year-old woman told investigators that she had gone to an Appleton bar the previous night with a friend. There she met a man whom she only knew as “Marky.”
The woman said she and her friend left the bar and went to a restaurant. While they were at the restaurant, Marky sent her text messages, then came to the restaurant.
The woman drove the man, later identified as Campbell, to her home that night, where they fell asleep.
In the morning, after Campbell went into the woman’s bathroom, she noticed that her wallet was missing from her purse.
The woman had nine $100 bills in her purse. She told deputies she confronted Campbell about the money and asked that he return it so she could pay her rent.
According to the criminal complaint, when the woman tried to keep Campbell from leaving her apartment, he bit her on her breast.
Witnesses told Deputy Cameron Durrant that they had seen a black man in a white T-shirt running from the house toward the convenience store.
A short time later, the convenience store owner called the sheriff’s office and reported that a customer saw a man matching the suspect’s description running toward a field.
Then, Capt. Adam Wogsland saw the suspect running through the field near the intersection of County Trunk B and County Trunk G.
Deputy Tim Myers responded to the area and drove into the field, where he saw an African-American male running into the woods.
Myers exited his squad car, pursued the suspect on foot, drew his service weapon and yelled, “Sheriff! Get on the ground and show me your hands!”
Myers then handcuffed Campbell and turned him over to Deputy Traci LaBrosse who transported him to jail.
While searching the area, Myers reported finding two bundles of $100 bills on the ground, about 3 feet from where Campbell had been taken into custody.
Campbell told investigators that he did not bite the woman, but gave her a hickey. He also denied taking her money, the complaint says.
He said he left the woman’s house after she threatened to call the police because he is on parole.
Campbell was sentenced in November 2012 to two years in state prison and two years of extended supervision after being convicted of delivery of cocaine and possession of cocaine with intent to deliver in Outagamie County.
He is currently being held in Waupaca County jail on a $2,000 cash bond.
