Eau Claire man accused of sexually assaulting girl while she slept

Eau Claire County (WQOW) – Child sexual assault charges were filed on Thursday against an Eau Claire man.

David Balistreri is accused of touching the girl inappropriately as she slept last Saturday night. She told detectives she woke up and Balistreri appeared startled and said he was looking for a pillow. He then left the room.

The girl’s father said they had been playing poker that night and Balistreri was quite drunk.

Witnesses said he almost made comments about wanting sex before he went to jail on a child support case.

Balistreri was released on Thursday on a $1,000 signature bond with orders not to have any contact with children.

He returns to court on November 19.
