The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has charged Marcin Wasag, DOB 09/19/84, with Sexual Assault, Aggravated Battery, and four additional felony charges.

On February 12, at approximately 4:30 p.m., the sheriff's office received a 911 call reporting Wasag had stolen a vehicle from a Sarasota residence. When deputies arrived, they located two elderly female victims, ages 66 and 70. The 70-year-old had been bound and sexually assaulted within the home, and the 66-year-old was robbed of $900 and her vehicle.

Deputies later located Wasag driving the stolen vehicle and fled when they attempted a traffic stop. Wasag ultimately crashed the car and was taken into custody. He was transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for injuries sustained in the crash.

Wasag is currently held in the Sarasota County Correctional Facility with no bond.
