A jury trial has been scheduled for a Superior man accused of grabbing the buttocks of two female joggers along the Osaugie Trail in April.
John Frank Young, 27, faces two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree sexual assault. Each is punishable by up to nine months in jail and a maximum fine of $10,000. At a hearing in Douglas County Circuit Court on Monday, an October trial date was set for the case.
Young is accused of coming up behind two female joggers while they were running on the Osaugie Trail and grabbing their buttocks on April 6. In both instances, the suspect passed the victim from behind on a black BMX-style bike and groped the victim before riding off, according to the criminal complaint.
Both women reported to police that they were wearing headphones while jogging and didn’t hear the man on the bike come up behind them.
A $750 signature bond was ordered in the case, with the conditions that Young have no contact with the victims and doesn’t go on the Osaugie Trail.
