Rape Suspect Told Police He Was Acting Out 'Fifty Shades Of Grey': Prosecutors

(CBS) – A 19-year-old man was charged with committing rape on the University of Illinois-Chicago campus and allegedly told police he had used "Fifty Shades of Grey" as an inspiration.

Mohammad Hossain faces a charge of felony aggravated criminal sexual assault and was ordered held on $500,000, the Cook County State's Attorney's Office said. He was still in custody late Monday.

Hossain allegedly sexually assaulted a female Saturday in a UIC dorm. He later told investigators he was "acting out" scenes from "Fifty Shades of Grey," the state's attorney's office confirmed to CBS 2.
