A University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) student was charged on Monday with sexual assault after re-enacting scenes from Fifty Shades of Grey.
Mohammad Hossain, freshman studying bio-nuclear engineering at UIC, committed the crime on Saturday, Feb. 21, after bringing a 19-year-old female, also a UIC student, to his dorm room.
The two had previously been intimate, said Assistant State’s Attorney Sarah Karr.
Prosecutors said Hossain bound the female’s hands and legs and covered her mouth with a necktie, which was then followed by hitting her with a belt. The woman cried asking Hossain to stop multiple times.
Authorities say Houssain started punching the victim, which then led to sexually assaulting her.
Hossain’s roommate arrived at the dorm after the crime. Prosecutors said Hossain blocked the door, preventing his roommate from entering.
The victim contacted the police after she left Hossain’s dorm, said prosecutors.
Hossain posted a Facebook status nearly an hour after the committed was crime stating, “I’m finally satisfied.”
Hossain was charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault and Cook County Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. set a $500,000 bail, according to authorities.
Authoriites said Hossain was involved with several leadership programs at UIC and was a member of UIC Student Alumni Ambassadors and the triathlon team.
Suzaine Suba and Kevin Pham, both former high school classmates of Hossain, said they were caught off guard when they learned Hossain was charged with a crime.
Suba said Hossain was a good person and was active at school.
“I remember the time when Hossain told me his experience with being bullied in school…he was just one of those individuals who struggled to fit into society,” said Suba. “I’m still trying to understand why he did what he did.”
Pham said Hossain was always eager in obtaining knowledge to expand his mind. However, he said, “Hossain was very pessimistic and would always put himself at the bottom of the totem pole.”
