Complaint: Madison man faces one count for alleged sexual assault of 13-year-old girl

A Madison man is facing one count for the alleged sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl.

According to the criminal complaint, Alamin B. Yussuf, 43, faces one count of sexual assault of a child under the age of 16.

A Madison police officer interviewed the 13-year-old girl, who said she ran away from her foster care home Nov. 22. The complaint said the foster parent told officers that the girl was trafficked in the past.

The person was told a Briarpatch Youth Services employee called and said someone in a black car dropped a girl off there Nov. 24.

The girl told police she was talking to a man on her 15-year-old friend’s phone using the Meet Me app and described it as a “hookup website.” The girl added that she spoke with the man before on her friend’s phone but never told the man how old she was.

According to the complaint, she said she met the man a few months ago and had sex at his apartment on the northeast side of Madison, which was later found to be on the 5000 block of Charon Lane.

The girl told officers she messaged the same man and arrived at his apartment Nov. 22. When the girl refused to have sex, she told officials there were times when the man attempted to bribe her with new purses and shoes.

The following day, the man picked up the girl and her 15-year-old friend at her friend’s house. Officials said the man drove the two girls to an area near the Henry Vilas Zoo, and the three of them went to a party. After the party, the girl got a ride back to the man’s apartment. When she arrived, the man told her she smelled like marijuana and told her to take a shower.

The complaint said the two of them went to bed, and she awoke the following morning at 6:30 when the man got on top of her and asked to have sex. According to the complaint, the girl refused and said she was tired, but the man had sex with her anyway.

The girl told the man she was going to walk to the police station nearby, but the man shouted at her and told her to get back in the car. The girl got into the vehicle after remembering the man had a gun inside his car. The girl was later dropped off at Briarpatch.

A search warrant was executed Dec. 4., and the man was arrested.

If convicted, Yussuf faces fines of up to $100,000 and a maximum of 40 years in prison.
