A first-year student at the University of Illinois in Chicago has been arrested for sexually assaulting a woman in his hostel room. According to The Independent, the 19-year old said he was re-enacting scenes from Fifty Shades of Grey.
Police say Mohammad Hossain told the woman to strip naked and then allegedly hit her several times after tying her to a bed and covering her mouth. The woman asked him to stop but Hossain continued with the assault.
Hossain claims to have got the idea from the sadomasochism-heavy Fifty Shades of Grey film, which has just been released.
The bio-nuclear engineering student has been banned from the UIC campus and charged with one count of aggravated criminal sexual assault.
