Sutjito is accused of assaulting a 22-year-old woman on Monday at the Q Center, 1405 N. 5th Ave., where they both were participating in a four-week training class, police said.

He was charged with two counts of criminal sexual assault, a Class 1 felony; one count of attempted criminal sexual assault, a class 2 felony; and one count of criminal sexual abuse, a Class 4 felony, according to police. Although Sutjito lives in Australia, he is a citizen of Indonesia so the Indonesian consulate has been notified, police said.

St. Charles police responded to a call from the Q Center Monday morning, where they interviewed the victim and conducted an investigation, police said.

Sutjito was being held at the Kane County jail; his next court date is scheduled for Oct. 11.

A manager and spokesman for the Q Center could not be reached for comment Thursday night.
