A 53 year old Gering man is being held on a $100,000 bond after being accused of attempted first degree sexual assault, strangulation and the 3rd degree assault of a female victim in his home.
Court documents claim Guy Hughes tried to force himself on the victim early the morning of April 19th even though she replied she wasn’t feeling well and told him to stop. The woman showed Police Hughes had bruised her arms and legs as he tried to hold her down, and put a pillow over her face for 15 to 20 seconds, suffocating her.
The woman eventually went to Doves and was provided a safe place for the evening. Hughes claimed he did nothing wrong and that the victim was making up the story.
