Chantae Gilman is a woman in Seattle, Washington who has been arrested for allegedly raping a sleeping man, who did not know her, in his residence who woke up while the alleged sexual assault was taking place.
The 28-year-old Chantae Gilman (mugshot photo above) is a mother of four and a resident of Seattle, Washington. Her full name is Chantae Marie Gilman.
The alleged incident took place in June 2013, and the investigation leading to her arrest took more than a year. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, quotes the police report which states that the the 31-year-old male alleged victim said he had gone to bed that night and woke up at around 2 a.m. and found Chantae Gilman — who is five-foot-seven and 240 pounds — “top of him with his erect penis inside of her.”
The report further notes that his hands were “pinned down over his head.” The alleged victim told her to move, but allegedly she continued having sex with him until he was able to free himself from her.
According to KOMO in Seattle, quoting court documents, the alleged victim went to Harborview Medical Center where he underwent an examination. Using a sample of DNA from Gilman, investigators were able to build a case. The station further notes that results from the lab were not completed until this summer, according to a county prosecutor representative.
According to the police the alleged victim said he did not know Gilman and described knowing of her as “a drug user in the area.” When questioned by police Gilman claimed she did not remember the alleged incident and told police she has bipolar disorder and suffers with mental illness.
Chantae Gilman was arrested and has been charged with second-degree rape, a felony. It is a charge leveled for assault of a victim who is “incapable of consenting to sexual intercourse by reason of being physically helpless.” More details can be seen in the probable cause affidavit here, as obtained by The Smoking Gun.
KOMO has some of Chantael Gilman’s bio and background as sourced from a neighbor who told them that she is the mother of four children and that she is presently eight months pregnant with what will be her fifth child. The neighbor also alleges that Gilman is undergoing treatment and has been treated in the past for mental health issues and drug abuse.
