Lufkin man allegedly sexually assaults woman, uses debit card for cigs

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Lufkin Police have arrested a man charged with sexually assaulting a 21-year-old woman and using her debit card to purchase a pack of cigarettes.

Scott Wayne Riley, 18, is charged with second-degree sexual assault  and state jail felony credit card/debit card abuse.  He was released from the Angelina County Jail after he posted a collective bond of $22,000 on Sept. 7.

According to the arrest affidavit, the woman went out with a man on Aug. 22. After having several drinks at a bar, the alleged victim became intoxicated. The man helped the woman to her car and was taking her home when he pulled over so she could vomit. At that point, a man later identified as Riley walked up and began talking to the friend, who asked Riley if he would help the victim into the back seat of the car. Then the man asked Riley if he wanted to help him get the victim to a residence on Mantooth Street.

Along the way, the man stopped at the Polk's Pick-It-Up store, located at 909 South Medford Drive in Lufkin. While there, Riley allegedly used the debit card that he took from the victim's purse while she was passed out in the back seat of the car to buy a pack of cigarettes valued at $6.02.

The two men helped the woman into the house, and the friend told Riley to watch the victim while he was gone for a few minutes. The affidavit states that Riley allegedly put his hand inside the victim's panties and touched her inappropriately.  At that point, the victim yelled for him to stop.

About that time, the friend returned to the house.

"Casey was interviewed and he told detectives that he did hear the victim scream, 'Stop' as he entered the house," the affidavit states.

The friend ran into the bedroom and claimed to find the victim upset and with her panties "in disarray." He also said that he found Riley "pacing back and forth" in the room.

LPD detectives interviewed Riley on Sept. 4. At that time, he admitted touching the woman inappropriately, according to the affidavit.

Police obtained a warrant for his arrest on both charges on Sept. 4 and arrested Riley on Sept. 7. An LPD officer took Riley into custody at the Pct. 1 Justice of the Peace Courtroom shortly after the arrest warrants were issued.
