Updated September 16, 2020 - 7:48 am

A local man has been charged with sexually assaulting a woman in Las Vegas in a series of incidents dating to 2019.

Joshua Bailey, 35, is charged with two counts of sex assault. A Las Vegas police arrest report for Bailey said a woman called police in August to report that a woman she knew had been sexually assaulted by Bailey. The accuser told police that Bailey had forced himself on her in separate incidents dating to July 2019.

The accuser stated, “Joshua did not listen when she said ‘no’ and ‘stop’ multiple times to Joshua when he attempted to have sex with her,” police wrote in the report.

The woman said Bailey raped her on at least three occasions. In an interview with police, Bailey said he and the accuser had repeatedly “fooled around” and that “he had never raped anyone.”

A preliminary hearing for Bailey is scheduled for Oct. 20 in Las Vegas Justice Court.
