COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A UIC student raped a classmate this weekend while acting out scenes from "50 Shades of Grey," prosecutors said Monday.
Mohammad Hossain, 19, brought a 19-year-old woman to his dorm room in the 900 block of West Harrison Street about 5:30 p.m. Saturday, according to Assistant State's Attorney Sarah Karr.
Hossain asked the woman — a fellow UIC student with whom he'd "previously been intimate" — to strip, Karr said.
The woman stripped down to her underwear, and then Hossain blindfolded and bound her, and gagged her with a necktie, prosecutors said.
Hossain proceeded to strike the woman with a belt, according to a police report. After several strikes, the woman asked Hossain to stop, saying "no," "stop," and "you're hurting me," the report said.
The woman continued to cry, shake her head and plead with Hossain to stop, Karr alleged, but he sexually assaulted her. The woman tried to break free of the restraints several times during the attack, but Hossain held her down each time, Karr added.
The victim was able to leave Hossain's dorm room when his roommate came home, according to prosecutors. She contacted police, who arrested Hossain.
Hossain told officers he was trying to recreate scenes from "50 Shades of Grey," and he knew he'd done something wrong, prosecutors said.
Hossain was charged with felony aggravated criminal sexual assault and held Monday in lieu of $500,000 bail. Cook County Judge Adam Bourgeois said Hossain is not allowed to return to UIC's campus and must submit to electronic monitoring if he posts bond.
