COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A South Shore man is accused of sexually assaulting two women, including one after he allegedly spiked her drink with a sedative and then filmed himself having sex with her, prosecutors said Friday.
Julius Armour, 31, of the 7500 block of South Ridgeland Avenue, was charged with two counts of sexual assault.
Prosecutors said Armour and a 21-year-old women were drinking with some friends the night of August 16. The woman had had two or three drinks when she got up to use the bathroom.
It was then that Armour had the opportunity to "drug her drink," according to court records.
"The victim came back and drank a little more from her drink and then lost consciousness," Assistant State's Attorney Amanda Pillsbury said Friday. "The victim was unable to maintain her balance anymore."
Armour allegedly took the woman to the apartment where he was staying in the 500 block of East 44th Street in a cab and had sex with her without her consent, Pillsbury said.
"The next day, the victim woke up and asked the defendant what happened; [he] indicted that they had sex. The victim cried and left," Pillsbury said.
The woman went to a hospital. Police later were able to recover a few seconds of a deleted video on Armour's cell phone showing him having sex with the woman.
In a second alleged attack, Armour was out drinking with a 28-year-old woman when the woman allegedly started vomiting and lost consciousness, Pillsbury said.
Armour allegedly took the woman home with him to the 7500 block of South Ridgeland Avenue and had sex with her without consent. The date of that alleged assault is unclear.
For two counts of sexual assault, a Cook County judge ordered him held Friday on $300,000 bond.
