Springfield Man Charged with Sexually Assaulting Women from Dating App
West Springfield Police District – A 58-year-old man is facing charges for sexually assaulting two women last summer. Detectives were contacted in July 2020 by a woman who reported she was assaulted at a home in the 8300 block of Cushing Court in Springfield by a man she met online. Approximately a month later, as detectives continued their investigation, a second victim reported being sexually assaulted at the same location under similar circumstances.
Detectives identified Drew John Steiner, of Springfield, as the offender in both cases. Yesterday morning, evidence was presented to a grand jury who indicted Steiner on one count of rape, one count of forcible sodomy, one count of unlawful filming, two counts of abduction with intent to defile and two counts of object sexual penetration.
