A Sleepy Eye man is facing multiple charges after an alleged sexual assault that occurred on Sunday. Sleepy Eye Police responded to a 911 call on Sunday that 41-year-old Thomas Kolbe II was trying to commit suicide. When Police arrived, Kolbe told Police that he was just faking the attempt out of anger at the victim. The victim told Police that she was trying to call 911 and Kolbe forcefully took the phone from her after a struggle. The victim then revealed to Police that Kolbe had sexually assaulted her the night before. She said that she came back from a birthday celebration and took medication for a migraine which put her in a heavy sleep. When she woke up, Kolbe was assaulting her and continued after she told him to stop. The victim said she woke up to multiple assaults throughout the night. Kolbe was charged Tuesday in Brown County Court with felony counts of criminal sexual conduct and misdemeanor counts of interrupting an emergency call and domestic assault.
