A 34-year-old Muslim immigrant is being held without bail in Raleigh, North Carolina—after the violent rape of a North Carolina woman last month.
Mohammad Imthais Alam turned him in at the Wake County Detention Center, and faces a litany of charges: first-degree rape, first-degree kidnapping, assault on a female, and second-degree forcible sexual offense.
The details of Alam’s brutal rape aren’t yet known—but police report that the victim knew Alam before she was assaulted.
Based on the charges filed under North Carolina law, Alam likely used a weapon and “inflicted serious personal injury” on his victim, before raping her. He also likely falsely imprisoned his victim while he was raping her.
If convicted, Alam could spend the rest of his life in prison.
