Local authorities have arrested a man in China for sexually assaulting and robbing a man who was passed out from being drunk on a public bench.
The victim, who was given the pseudonym A’Jun by the police, found his pockets emptied and fly left open when he woke up on Sunday morning at an open area in Liuzhou, Guangxi.
When he reported the incident to the police, nearby surveillance cameras were immediately checked to uncover what transpired during his deep slumber, according to Shanghaiist.
In the CCTV footage, A’Jun can be seen entering the area at around 2 a.m. before eventually passing out on a bench. At around 4:30 a.m., a man approached an unconscious A’Jun, carefully observing the surroundings to ensure that there was no one around. When he was sure the coast was clear, the man began groping at A’Jun’s crotch.
He then knelt down and gave his victim a handjob first and then a blowjob. The whole sexual assault episode lasted for about four or five minutes.
The offender was only briefly interrupted when something fell from A’Jun’s pocket. After he picked up what appeared to be a smartphone, he continued with the blowjob.
When he was finished, the man grabbed A’Jun’s wallet from his pocket before fleeing the scene.
Clips from the surveillance footage became widely shared on Chinese social media platforms. The video led to the arrest of the man who was found in a hotel about 200 meters away from the area where he molested his victim.
The suspect, who was described as a gay man who is less than 30 years old, was found to be visiting from northern Guangxi on a “business” trip.
Upon questioning, he confessed to the crime, explaining that he found A’Jun to be quite attractive when he chanced upon him passed out on the bench. He also admitted to stealing the 600 yuan ($90) and A’Jun’s ID card as a souvenir but said he already threw the wallet away.
While it was not reported if charges have been filed against him, the man has remained in police custody.
