Yung Gleesh Charged With Sexual Assault at SXSW 2015 [VIDEO]
Police in Austin, Texas are looking for rapper Yung Gleesh for an alleged sexual assault that occurred during the SXSW Music Festival last week.
KXAN reports that the Washington, D.C.-area rhymer, whose real name is Asa Asuncion, is accused of raping a woman while she was highly intoxicated at a friend’s house early Friday morning (March 20). According to the arrest affidavit, the victim and her friend were out partying and ended up at another friend’s home. The victim was passed out when Gleesh and his friends arrived an hour later.
Sometime after the victim went to sleep, her friend woke up to see Gleesh sexually assaulting the woman, who was partially naked. The victim’s friend told police that she pulled the rapper off her friend and a verbal altercation took place before the victim was taken to the hospital.
After the incident, police have been unable to locate Gleesh, who has since fled on foot. The Your Favorite Rapper's Favorite Rapper creator didn’t appear at a scheduled show at SXSW and canceled a planned March 23 concert in Dallas.
Yung Gleesh was a performer at last year’s SXSW festival and was invited to perform again in 2015. Police have not arrested the rhymer, whose dance moves in A$AP Rocky's "Multiply" video were a hot topic in 2014, yet.
