Man accused of sexual assault had ransom demands

A man being accused of grabbing a woman in the locker room at Salt Lake Community College, allegedly left notes demanding sex in other lockers. Timothy Alan Wyatt, 33, of Salt Lake City, has been charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault, both first-degree felonies. He's also been assault by a prisoner and drug possession with prior convictions, both third-degree felonies. Wyatt is accused of attempting to kidnap and sexually assault an 18-year-old student in the women's locker room on campus. Wyatt grabbed the woman when she was trying to leave, but she managed to escape and get to her friends nearby. Those friends were able to get the license plate of the truck Wyatt fled in, which eventually led to his capture over two hours later at a 7-11.

While being interviewed, Wyatt "picked up a chair and threw it" at the investigators while he was leaving the room, according to charging documents. Upon further investigation, it was learned that Wyatt had been on the SLCC campus earlier that evening, and had been hanging around the building he'd attempted the alleged kidnapping and assault. He is also accused of putting tape over the motion sensors in the locker room to prevent the lights from coming on, as well as stealing property from several lockers and leaving notes demanding sex for the return of the stolen items. While going through his truck, investigators found shoes, athletic equipment, and other items likely to be found in a gym locker.

According to court records, Wyatt has a lengthy criminal history in Utah, including several charges and convictions in relation to stalking and other domestic violence-related crimes.  Additionally, there are several assault and weapons-related charges on his record as well.
