The ISU Police Department responded to a report of an assault at 10 p.m. June 1 at Schilletter Village and an investigation led to the arrest of 26-year-old William Lajuan Carter.

Carter has been charged with four counts of third degree sexual abuse, each a class c felony; false imprisonment, which is a serious misdemeanor, and providing alcohol to a minor, which is also a serious misdemeanor.

Carter had recently met the victim and the two arranged to meet at his apartment to watch movies, according to an ISU Police news release. Carter had sexual intercourse with the victim and according to the report, she repeatedly told him she did not want to have sex with him.

Carter held the victim down and refused to let her leave his apartment. Carter let her leave after the sex acts had occurred. The victim was able to text a friend for help, according to the police report.
