La Crosse man pleads guilty in violent sexual assault of neighbor

LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - A La Crosse man has admitted to a violent sexual assault of a neighbor.

22-year-old Jarrett Walch pleaded guilty in La Crosse County to strangulation and suffocation, and second degree sex assault. Three other felonies, including false imprisonment and burglary, were dropped in a plea deal.

Prosecutors said Walch broke into the neighbor's apartment on March 9th and told the woman, "It's your lucky night -- Your door was unlocked."

Authorities said Walch sexually assaulted the woman and squeezed her throat until she could grab a can of pepper spray. He then threw her against a wall, punched her, and ran away.

Walch is scheduled to be sentenced October 27th.
