MART, TX (KXXV) -

A Mart man has been booked into the McLennan County Jail on charges of sexual assault this week.

On May 23, Mart police officers were sent out on a disturbance call where they found 46-year-old James Paul Chapman and a woman, who showed visible evidence of assault, the arrest affidavit says.

The victim was persistent about not pressing charges, but she requested that Chapman leave her house. 

Two days later, McLennan County deputies were sent to Chapman's house for a threat of assault by the victim's brother. The case was turned over to Mart police, who said the victim told her brother and his wife about the incident.

She reported Chapman was intoxicated from drinking all day and continuously attempted to force himself on her. The victim said she initially consented, but he became aggressive with her so she attempted to stop the encounter.

She said he began forcefully assaulting her when she tried to stop. When she tried to fight him off, she sustained defensive injuries including cuts and bruises all over her body. He reportedly grabbed, squeezed, hit and held her down during the incident.

Chapman had blood on his hands and wiped them on the sheets after the incident, the affidavit said. During the investigation, officers found clothing and bed covers with large amounts of blood.

On May 24, Chapman was arrested for sexual assault. His bond has been set at $20,000.
