Bassem Youssef Mseeha faces charges of sexual battery and kidnapping after he was arrested for the rape of a young woman, Tuesday.

According to an arrest warrant, Mseeha met with the victim at his home after they had spoken with each other through social media for a month. While at his residence, the report said the two drank alcoholic beverages and smoked marijuana.

The report goes on to say while the victim was in the restroom, Mseeha punched her several times in the head when she refused to let him kiss her. The arrest warrant then said Mseeha threatened to kill the victim before forcing her to perform oral sex on him.

The arrest report said Mseeha admitted to being with the victim and becoming intoxicated. However, he said he doesn’t recall anything occurring between the victim and himself.

Mseeha is being held without bond and must surrender his passport.
