• False social media rumors claim Jacob Blake is a pedophile after social media users mistakenly claimed a current charge was with a minor
  • Blake had a warrant for his arrest the day he was shot related to an incident in May where he broke into his ex-girlfriend’s residence and sexually assaulted
  • During the break-in, Blake also stole his ex-girlfriend’s truck key, vehicle, and debit card
  • The incident led to the shooting that had on Sunday and grabbed international attention

Since a police shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin went viral, some on social media have used a recent charge of third-degree sexual assault to say Jacob Blake is a pedophile. While the accusation against Blake is disgusting, it has nothing to do with an act of pedophilia.

According to Wisconsin Circuit Court Access, a warrant was filed for Blake’s arrest on July 7 for criminal trespass to a dwelling with a modifier of domestic abuse, third-degree sexual assault with a modifier of domestic abuse, and disorderly conduct with a modifier of domestic abuse.

Social media sleuths have been sharing a photoshopped image of the Wisconsin Circuit Court Access page with a Rhode Island statute to support the false allegation. In Rhode Island, Section 11-37-6 reads, “A person is guilty of third degree sexual assault if he or she is over the age of eighteen (18) years and engaged in sexual penetration with another person over the age of fourteen (14) years and under the age of consent, sixteen (16) years of age.” Below is the photoshopped image followed by the original Wisconsin Circuit Court Access website.

According to the Wisconsin State Legislature, third-degree sexual assault is described as “Whoever has sexual intercourse with a person without the consent of that person is guilty of a Class G felony. Whoever has sexual contact in the manner described in sub. (5) (b) 2. or 3. with a person without the consent of that person is guilty of a Class G felony.” Nowhere does it state the offense is directed towards minors.

According to the criminal affidavit for the case, On May 3, 2020, Blake’s ex-girlfriend called the police after he had allegedly broken into her residence and stole her key to her vehicle, her vehicle, and her debit card before fleeing the scene. Blake’s ex-girlfriend, identified as “LNB” in the affidavit, said she had attended a party in Milwaukee. She rented a vehicle because she was not sure her car was mechanically capable of making the trip. LNB’s sister “Tamara” watched her three children while she was gone. She returned home around 4:00 am.

After returning home, LNB took her son to her bedroom and laid down to go to sleep. LNB says she woke up around 6:00 am to Blake standing over her. As LNB laid on her back on the bed, Blake stated “I want my shit.” As LNB laid on her back, Blake “suddenly and without warning, reached his hand between her legs, penetrated her vaginally with a finger, pull it out and sniffed it, and said, “Smells like you’ve been with other men.” 

Officer Raiche reported that LNB “had a very difficult time telling him this and cried as she told how the defendant assaulted her and then the defendant immediately left the bedroom.” LNB told the officers Blake “penetrating her digitally caused her pain and humiliation and was done without her consent.” 

After Blake penetrated LNB she managed to collect herself and “ran the defendant out of the front door and then realized her vehicle was missing.” LNB then noticed her truck key and her Great Lakes debit card were missing. While waiting for officers to arrive, LNB checked her bank account and noticed two fraudulent ATM withdrawals made on May 3, 2020. Both withdrawals were for $500 at an unknown time.

Audio obtained by Madison365 showed Kenosha police were called to the residence in relation to the break-in. Someone called police to tell them Blake was not supposed to be at the residence and that he had taken a woman’s keys and refused to give them back to her. About thirty seconds after receiving the call, dispatch lets officers know there was “an alert at this address for a 99 for this subject,” which apparently indicates there was an active warrant for Blake’s arrest. The address listed on the warrant appears to be the same address where the shooting occurred.

About a minute after the initial call, the dispatcher relayed to officers the caller indicated Blake was leaving and hung up the phone. About five minutes after the initial call, officers can be heard saying shots fired. Roughly 40 seconds later an officer on the scene requested “rescue ASAP.” About two minutes after the reported shots fired another officer reported all officers on the scene were okay. Blake survived the shooting but it was reported on Tuesday he was partially paralyzed.
