The victim said Jonathan Wrencher, 30, sexually assaulted her May 15 while pinning her shoulders to a bed in a Fifth Avenue apartment, according to the complaint filed in La Crosse County Circuit Court.

Four days later, Wrencher pushed the woman onto a bed, removed her clothing and assaulted her again after she told him to stop because he was drunk, the complaint stated.

Wrencher on June 21 texted the woman pictures of himself with firearms and told her to commit suicide, according to the complaint. He also said that he would have her killed.

Prosecutors charged Wrencher with two counts of second-degree sexual assault and stalking, all as a repeat offender. He is jailed on a $10,000 cash bond.

In 2016, prosecutors charged Wrencher and his brother, Jeremy Wrencher, with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl.

The victim in that case told police Jeremy Wrencher raped her Aug. 23 at his house despite her protests to stop. She said Wrencher raped her a second time while his brother held her at gunpoint and forced her to perform oral sex, according to the complaint.

Charges were later dropped against Jonathan Wrencher. Jeremy Wrencher is serving three years in prison.
