Last week, a UW-Madison student was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting another student in his apartment.
Alec R. Cook, 20, was then charged with four felony counts of second-degree sexual assault, “three counts of battery and one count each of strangulation-suffocation and false imprisonment,” according to the Wisconsin State Journal.
On Oct. 12, Cook and the unidentified woman went to his apartment after studying at a campus library. There, he allegedly raped her and held her in a “death grip.”
And it doesn’t appear to be an isolated incident.
Since his arrest, more women have reportedly come forward with similar allegations against Cook.
WKOW reports according to an affidavit by Madison Police detective Grant Humerickhouse “dozens of women had come forward ‘“wanting to speak about … acts related to Cook.’”
Also, a book containing names of numerous women was seized while searching Cook’s apartment.
“Each entry showed how he met the female, and what he liked about them. Further entries went on to document what he wanted to do with the females," the affidavit states. "Disturbingly enough there were statements of 'kill' and statements of 'sexual' desires.”
Following the barrage of rape allegations, Phi Delta Theta, Cook’s fraternity, disavowed him. He has also been suspended from the university.
As of now, Cook remains in custody in the Dane County Jail. The investigation into other claims is ongoing.
