A Maricopa man already indicted on three counts of assault earlier this year now faces a charge of sexual assault stemming from a July 1 incident.
Andrique Holley, 36, has a preliminary hearing on the new charges scheduled for Friday in front of Pinal County Superior Court Judge Lawrence Wharton.
He is accused of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old while she slept. Maricopa Police Department was called to the location around 4:40 p.m. The alleged victim was taken to the Mesa Police Department’s Family Advocacy Center while Maricopa Police officers searched for Holley.
At around 9:23, MPD found Holley hiding in a culvert under a nearby road. After he allegedly refused to comply with officers’ demands to come out of the culvert, MPD used the police K9 to remove him.
According to the police report, Holley had allegedly ingested four bottles of prescription drugs and a large amount of bleach before being found. He was transported to Chandler Regional Medical Center for dog bites and mental evaluation.
Hospital staff released Holley to MPD on July 6, and he was processed in Maricopa. According to the police report, he admitted to the assault. He said he left the home when confronted by the victim’s mother. He told police he took drugs and drank bleach to commit suicide.
He is being held in Pinal County Jail without bail on the sexual assault accusation.
He is also charged with probation violation, with a $1,000 bond.
Holley’s Maricopa troubles started Feb. 1 when he was arrested after a public fracas during which Holley was allegedly intoxicated and dragged a teenage girl to the ground in Glennwilde. That escalated into a fight with bystanders and his indictment on three felony charges and two misdemeanor charges.
A grand jury on Feb. 22 charged Holley with assault for injuring the girl, a Class 1 misdemeanor. He was charged with assault for touching and trying to injure another female, a Class 3 misdemeanor.
Because Holley allegedly punched a man trying to help the teen, “causing … severe laceration to his lip,” he was charged with aggravated assault, a Class 4 felony.
The grand jury also indicted Holley on a charge of resisting arrest and attempted aggravated assault on Officer Daniel Rauch, both Class 6 felonies.
Holley also had a 2014 conviction for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in Maricopa County.
