A college student has been charged with sexually assaulting 19-year-old woman after he allegedly attempted to recreate Fifty Shades of Grey.
Mohammad Hossain, 19, is accused of tying up his victim, a fellow student, whipping and punching her before raping her in his dormitory at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
The engineering student has admitted to police that he assaulted the woman, but explained to them that it was because they were ‘re-enacting scenes from Fifty Shades of Grey’.
Charged: Mohammad Hossain, 19, is accused of tying up a fellow student, also 19, whipping and punching her before raping her in his dormitory at the University of Illinois at Chicago
Mr Hossain, a college freshman and student ambassador to the alumni association, and the alleged victim went to his room on Saturday afternoon.
Hossain is said to have asked her to remove her clothing, which she consented to but kept her bra and underwear on, before tying her hands and legs with belts, the Chicago Tribune reports.
He used a necktie to cover her mouth and pulled a knit cap over her eyes, before removing her underwear, Assistant State’s Attorney Sarah Karr told the Cook County court.
Mr Hossain then struck her several times with a belt before she told him to stop as he was hurting her, the court heard.
The woman ‘began shaking her head and crying’, but Mr Hossain is said to have continued to hit her with the belt and also punched her several times.
