Affidavit: Lufkin man dragged woman behind mobile home, sexual assaulted her

ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Angelina County Sheriff's Office arrested a 28-year-old man Thursday in connection to allegations that he sexually assaulted a 36-year-old woman behind a mobile home on Jan. 23, 2014.

Xavier Terrance McCloud, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a second-degree felony sexual assault charge. No bail has been set at this time.

According to the arrest affidavit, two ACSO deputies and a detective were dispatched out to talk to an alleged sexual assault victim at about 12:35 a.m. on Jan. 23, 2014. The woman told authorities that she had been sexually assaulted by a man who was later identified as McCloud.

The alleged victim told the ACSO deputies she had just left a friend's house on foot when McCloud approached her and asked her if she had "rolling papers." 
After the woman walked to her house and brought them to McCloud, he then started "hitting on her" and told her he wanted to "taste her," the affidavit stated.

At that point, McCloud allegedly grabbed her and pulled her around to the back of a nearby mobile home.
McCloud took the woman's clothes off and sexually assaulted her before he left the scene, the affidavit stated. After the alleged sexual assault, the woman put her clothes back on and walked back to her home.

According to the arrest affidavit, the woman sent a text message to her friend that said, "wtf, [McCloud] just forced his self on me!" Her friend arrived at her residence a short time later and urged her to call the police, and she did.

McCloud was questioned, and he came to the sheriff's office to give a voluntary statement, the affidavit stated. When he gave his statement, McCloud allegedly "adamantly denied" having any kind of relationship with the victim and said that he didn't even know who she was.

McCloud voluntarily provided a DNA sample to authorities, the affidavit stated.

A SANE exam was performed on the alleged victim, and DNA evidence was gathered. The biological evidence in the case was sent to the Austin Crime Laboratory.
