Sex offender accused of assaulting woman in Las Vegas hotel

A convicted sex offender was arrested this month after police said he sexually assaulted a woman at a Las Vegas hotel.

Jamarein Stingley, 27, was arrested on October 5 and charged with sex trafficking and two counts of sexual assault, court records show.

A woman reported that she met Stingley in Rio and tried to convince her to become a sex worker, according to a Metropolitan Police Department arrest report released on Wednesday.

Police said Stingley punched the woman in the face twice and sexually assaulted her in the hotel room.

Detectives examined hotel security footage showing the woman running for the elevator. As she tried to escape, the video showed a man identified as Stingley attacking the woman again.

Stingley was found in the casino that night and detained. He told police the meeting was consensual.

Court records show Stingley was convicted of legal sexual seduction in June 2014, forcing him to register as a sex offender.

He is being held without bond and is due in court for a preliminary hearing on October 27.
