I am really getting tired of reading stories about teachers who have issues.
DOUGLAS COUNTY – An English teacher from West High School was arrested Tuesday, after authorities say he attempted to pay to watch two teenage girls fight.
A Douglas County Sheriff’s Investigator, posing as a 14-year-old girl, started chatting on-line with 45-year-old Mark Asimus of Denver.
According to investigators, Asimus told the investigator that he wanted to pay the girl to aggressively beat up another teenage girl. “He did tell investigators that he didn’t want to videotape it, but wanted to actually physically see the assault take place,” said Lieutenant Alan Stanton with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
“He wanted to observe this for pleasure,” said Stanton. Authorities say Asimus was very specific, asking for the fight to result in bloody mouths, noses, and even broken bones.
“He had a fetish or a fascination with watching women fighting,” said Stanton.
After one day of chatting on-line, Asimus agreed to meet the decoy teenager at a park in Lone Tree. That’s where investigators arrested him Tuesday afternoon.
Asimus faces criminal attempt second degree assault, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and criminal solicitation.”
