A teen was arrested on charges of rape after allegedly raping a classmate because he wanted to act out a scene from Fifty Shades of Grey, police in Illinois said.
Chicago Police said that 19-year-old Mohammad Hossain, brought the 19-year-old woman back to his dorm room at the University of Illinois on Saturday, and used multiple straps to tie her up before raping her.
Hossain has been charged with one count of aggravated criminal sexual assault. If convicted, he faces up to 30 years behind bars.
Hossain was booked into jail and his bail was set at $500,000. Hossain claims that the sex was consensual. According to the police investigation, Hossain asked the woman to strip for him.
After the woman took off all her clothes except her underwear, Hossain covered her eyes and tied her hands to a bed. He used a second belt to tie her legs and put tie on her mouth, police said.
After removing her remaining clothing, Hossain began hitting the woman with another belt. When she asked him to stop, saying “no,” “stop” and “you’re hurting me,” he refused.
Hossain continued beating the woman as the woman shook her head and cried. Hossain then raped the woman. When the victim was finally able to leave the room, she called the police.
Hossain told officers that he was trying to recreate scenes of Fifty Shades of Grey.
