Wilson Guzman

A 36-year-old Hilton Head Island man was arrested Monday, accused of assaulting a sleeping woman in his home, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

The victim told deputies she had several drinks after work Aug. 8 and planned to spend the night on a coworker's couch. She had also known the coworker's roommate, Wilson Guzman, for several years, according to a Sheriff's Office report.

At about 3 a.m., the 23-year-old victim awoke to Guzman sexually assaulting her, according to the report. She yelled at him and ran from the room. She reported the incident two days later.

Guzman was charged Monday with first-degree assault and battery. He is being held at the Beaufort County Detention Center, with bond set at $10,000, and has been placed on a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold, according to the jail log.
