Man grabbed neighbour's penis by mistake

A misplaced hand in the dark — and the fact that the drunken intruder was in the wrong apartment — resulted in a Brandon man spending more than four months in jail.

The apartment’s resident received a rude awakening when an intruder seized a sensitive body part, albeit by mistake.

"We accept that it was dark in the room," Crown attorney Marnie Evans told Brandon provincial court on Monday. "Mr. Huessien did intend to grab a part of (the victim’s) body, but did not intend to grab his penis."

Evans and defence lawyer Philip Sieklicki described the following strange series of events.

On April 19, shortly before 4:40 a.m., Aden Huessien arrived home at his apartment following a day and night of drinking.

He then decided to take out the garbage, but forgot his key. He climbed through an open window, mistakenly believing it to be one for his apartment.

He ended up in his neighbour’s suite instead — specifically, in the bedroom where a man and wife were asleep.

Somehow, in the dark — it’s not clear how — Huessien mistakenly grabbed the man’s penis.

That awoke the resident, and there was then a struggle in which the man managed to pin Huessien to the floor.

The commotion was heard by the couple’s 13-year-old daughter, who was in another room with a 14-year-old friend. It was the young daughter who called police at the direction of her father.

The man’s wife also gave a statement to police.

"She confirmed that it was not her that was touching her husband," Evans said, adding there was no sexual element to the crime.

However, Evans said the family was traumatized by the incident.

Huessien pleaded guilty to break, enter and commit assault. He had been in custody since his mistake, and was sentenced to time served followed by two years probation.
