Another victim of scumbag rapist Scott Shefelbine has come forward…
The latest girl to come forward about her relationship with Scott D. Shefelbine claims the last time they were together, the 31-year-old Tolland man and former Ellington High School teacher’s aide physically forced her to have sexual relations with him, according to an affidavit supporting his arrest.
Shefelbine already is facing charges he sexually assaulted several other girls he met on MySpace.com.
According to the arrest warrant affidavit, the girl’s father called West Hartford police Oct. 10 to say he’d just seen a television news report about a sexual predator using MySpace to lure young girls, and recognized Shefelbine from his mug shot as the boy dating his 16-year-old daughter.
The father told police that Shefelbine had claimed to be 17 and had been to his house about 10 times, the affidavit says. He said he had asked Shefelbine to verify his age, but no identification ever was produced, according to the affidavit.
After the father’s report police interviewed the girl, who said she’d met Shefelbine in late August in an online chat room. Initially, she voluntarily performed a sex act on him whenever they were together, the affidavit says, but the last time they were together, she refused and Shefelbine forced her.
According to court documents, Shefelbine and the girl would communicate through instant messages on the computer, and he was able to obtain the girl’s cell phone number from her away message box.
He called her, they chatted for an hour, and a few days later, on Aug. 25, he picked her up and drove her to his Tolland home, the affidavit says.
While there they watched a movie and, according to the affidavit, Shefelbine gave the girl three bottles of raspberry-flavored vodka before suggesting “out of the blue” that she perform a sex act upon him.
At first she said no and went outside to smoke a cigarette, but when she came back she found Shefelbine on the couch waiting for her expectantly, the affidavit states.
The girl told police she complied then, and during each subsequent visit until their last meeting on Columbus Day.
Shefelbine called her from the car on his way to her house and asked her to have sexual relations with him, the affidavit states, but she repeatedly told him no. When he got to the house, however, he physically forced her, the document states.
The girl told police she didn’t want to comply, “but she did not know what else to do.”
Shefelbine first was arrested on Oct. 10 by the Vernon Police Department on charges that he sexually assaulted four teenage girls.
In those cases, police say Shefelbine used the Web site MySpace.com to meet teenage girls and their friends posing as a 17- to 19-year-old boy, using a hairpiece to hide his balding head.
