A Hayfield man is in custody and faces two felony sexual assault charges after allegedly raping a woman in a Turtle Creek Industries bathroom on Oct. 6.

Bradley John Turner, 50, an employee at Turtle Creek Industries, allegedly followed the woman into the bathroom, touched her inappropriately and forced himself on her. The woman told officers that when she screamed, Turner put his hand over her mouth and told her to “be quiet.”

Turner told police that when he saw the woman enter the bathroom, voices in his head told him to follow her and rape and kill her.

The court report said Turner admitted to entering the bathroom with the intent to rape the woman, but he said he could not complete the act because the woman screamed.

The court report also said Turner admitted to telling the woman, “have sex with me or I’ll kill you.”

Turner is set to appear in court to enter a plea on Nov. 4. His bail is set at $100,000 without conditions and $50,000 with conditions, which include no contact with the victim and weekly check-ins with the Mower County Court System.
