Seattle woman pleads guilty to attempted rape of sleeping man BY Nicole Hensley NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Wednesday, May 20, 2015, 2:17 PM Police Handout Chantae Gilman, 28, pleaded guilty to attempted rape this month after being accused of raping a man in his sleep. A 28-year-old woman pleaded guilty to trying to rape a man as he slept unaware of the assault at his Seattle apartment. The exhausted victim woke in the middle of the night to find Chantae Gilman, 28, on top of him and pinning his hands above his head, court documents show. She then told the victim to be quiet, according to a police report. Gilman apparently broken into his south Seattle apartment hours after he returned from a friend’s party next door to his duplex. The incident, though first reported in June 2013, did not result in charges of attempted rape and assault until Sept. 2014. She pleaded guilty to both charges last week, court records show. The victim is not identified because he is the victim of a sexual assault. During the night in question, the victim managed to push Gilman off of him and asked her to leave, but the mother of at least three children refused and instead asked for a cigarette instead, authorities said. He tossed her a cigarette before slamming the door shut and going to the hospital for the sexual assault examination, providing evidence that later connected Gilman to the crime. Gilman had previously pleaded not guilty to the allegations and said she suffers from mental illnesses. Neither the victim nor Gilman knew each other. She was unable to recall having sex with the victim or being at his home. She did, however, know the tenant of the adjacent duplex where the victim had partied just hours before. At the time of Gilman being charged, she had apparently been pregnant with another child. She is expected to be sentenced on June 19, records state.
