A Pleasant Grove man, bound over to 4th District Court on charges of sexual assault and burglary, will be arraigned Aug. 12.
During a preliminary hearing Tuesday for Jonathan H. Lundquist, 369 E. State Rd., 4th Circuit Judge Patrick McGuire ruled that there was probable cause to bind the man over to district court.Lundquist was arrested Aug. 1 by Provo police in connection with a May 31 sexual assault incident involving a Provo woman.
The victim identified Lundquist as the assailant who entered her condominium during the early morning hours of May 31.
She testified that she woke up at about 2:30 a.m. and saw a man standing next to her bed. She said he was small in stature, had a beard and a high-pitched voice - matching the accused man's.
Lundquist is charged with aggravated sexual assault, a first degree felony, and burglary, a second degree felony.
But Lundquist's defense attorney, Wayne Watson, said his client is merely a victim of unfortunate circumstances.
"There is no physical evidence to connect my client to the incident," he said.
Provo Police Detective Don Mes-sick testified that Utah State Crime Lab tests show that hair and blood samples taken from the victim's residence do not match Lundquist's.
However, Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Kent Barry said there was enough evidence in the case because "we've got an individual here that remembers the suspect."
Judge McGuire said he found probable cause because the victim was a very believable witness.
