Desmond Saine, 22, from Little Rock, denies sexually assaulting the Lousiana State University student he met at an off-campus party on March 13. 

Saine exchanged social media details with the victim at the party, who admitted to police that she had been drinking heavily.

Directly after the party, Saine is alleged to have contacted the victim to ask if they could hang out, and from there he went to her dorm room.

The police report alleges that Saine asked if he could kiss the victim, to which she refused, and he then proceeded to take her clothes off and rape her. 

The victim told friends what had allegedly happened immediately afterwards and the friends told the investigating police officers that the victim had been ‘distraught’.
