BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – A man is facing charges after he allegedly sexually assaulted a woman in her Bloomington home on Friday.

Police were called to the scene in the 400 block of West 3rd St. shortly before 2 a.m. There, the 20-year-old victim told officers she went to bed after drinking and awoke to find 21-year-old Bryce Shook assaulting her.

The victim told investigators that a physical fight ensued when she pushed the man off and chased him out of the residence. She reportedly suffered a broken collarbone after being shoved into an entertainment center.
