FENTON, Mo. (KTVI) -- A man is accused of sexually assaulting a blind woman at a local bar and grill.

The suspect, 42-year-old Shane Allison, is behind bars at the St. Louis County Justice Center in Clayton.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Wesley Bell says the victim and the suspect did not know each other.

Allison faces one felony count of sexual abuse for an incident that allegedly happened last Saturday night at the 026 Bar and Grill in Fenton.

Court documents say the adult victim, who is legally blind, was at the restaurant and bar alone. The business owner tells KTVI she was picking up a pizza.

Allison allegedly came in and sat down next to her. The documents say Allison started touching and grabbing the woman inappropriately, hurting her at one point.

The documents say that the woman repeatedly told him to stop.

As Allison became more aggressive, the documents reveal that others at the bar and grill stepped in and struggled with Allison, forcing him out of the business.

Outside, Allison reportedly threatened to come back and shoot up the bar.

St. Louis County police later arrested Allison at his home in unincorporated Fenton.

The documents say Allison was highly intoxicated and said he did not remember what happened.

But the documents also say Allison told police, “I want to know who this b---- is so I can kill her for doing this to me.”
