Anthony J. Zingale, a 19-year-old Wisconsin native, was arrested for sexual assault and carrying a concealed weapon after he attacked a woman at a party last month. The young man is facing a maximum term of 40 years if convicted, which might be the reason behind his crying-face mug shot that is circulating the Internet.
According the Sheboygan Press, a party that took place on May 28th ended abruptly after Zingale allegedly drunkenly entered a bathroom that a woman was using, exposed himself to her, put a knife to her neck, and threatened to cut her if she did not have sex with him.
Luckily, the terrified woman was able to persuade Zingale to leave the bathroom by allegedly saying the two should go to a bedroom. Once they exited the bathroom however, she screamed for help.
Zingale immediately put his hands behind his back when police arrived, but later told a very different version of the story, saying that he just needed to use the bathroom badly but was "embarrassed" because a woman was also in the bathroom. He said that when he pulled his pants down, the woman reached for his knife that he had brought to the bathroom.
He did admit to drinking underage.
The 19-year-old is facing charges for first-degree sexual assault and for carrying a concealed weapon; those charges hold a maximum sentence of 40 years.
It is unclear is Zingale is still being kept at the Sheboygan County Detention Center of if the young man has been granted bail.
