Man charged with sexual assault


Killeen police arrested a 27-year-old man and charged him with sexual assault after police said he drugged another man and performed a sexual act on him.

Police charged Chad Lee Cook after a DNA test of a sample taken from the alleged victim’s body from in April came back as a positive match to Cook’s DNA.

The alleged victim told police he had gone over to Cook’s house on April 12 to do some welding. Cook gave the victim some water, which was drugged, according to an arrest affidavit.

The victim began to feel woozy and passed out. He awoke to find Cook performing oral sex on him, the affidavit stated.
