Yung Gleesh charged with sexual assault

Washington D.C-based rapper Young Gleesh has been charged with sexual assault, following a recent incident in which he reportedly assaulted an intoxicated woman who he met at a friend’s house.

The 25-year-old rapper has just been performing at SXSW, and also featured on Brodinski’s recent album Brava

According to a report from Austin Police, Yung Gleesh, real name Asa Asuncion, met his victim in the early hours of March 20. The woman had been out with a friend, and ended up at another friend’s home in north central Austin. Having passed out intoxicated around 2:30 am, Yung Gleesh arrived at the same property about an hour later. The victim’s friend awoke at 6 am, to find Yung Gleesh on top of the victim. Both were mostly unclothed. She pulled the rapper away from her friend and a verbal argument ensued, before the victim was taken to hospital, where they met with Austin Police.

Asuncion has not yet been arrested, but has reportedly been charged.

He was supposed to perform at a few more SXSW shows, all of which were cancelled.
