Local rapper Yung Gleesh (aka Asa Asuncion) has been charged with sexual assault in Austin, Texas, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by Austin NBC affiliate KXAN. Asuncion was in Austin performing at the South by Southwest music festival and was scheduled to perform in Dallas on Monday night but has since returned to D.C. He was allegedly found unclothed on top of a female victim and stopped by the victim’s friend on the morning of March 20. By the time police arrived at the house, Asuncion had left the scene on foot.
In addition to the criminal charges, Asuncion has also been dropped by his management team, according to a statement in FADER. He has yet to be arrested and or make a public statement, and the Austin police are looking for him. Expect more updates here as details emerge.
