Roommates groomed victim held captive to be ‘sex puppy’: cops
Two roommates face rape charges for allegedly grooming a prisoner to be their “sex puppy,” according to reports.
Jacob Lester, 26, and Benjamin Mooney, 31, are accused of inviting a person over Thursday for “pup play training” then keeping the person captive at their home in Fayetteville, Arkansas, news station KSFM reported.
Police said the unnamed individual went willingly to the residence to learn about the fetish but claimed the lessons got out of hand. The victim was reportedly drugged with a sedative, raped and beaten.
Investigators said the “pup play training” was aimed at making the victim more submissive.
Mooney reportedly handled the lessons but the group had threesomes in between.
The incidents left the person with bruises and whip marks all over the back and buttocks, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.
Police said the victim was able to escape Saturday morning from the home, and showed up naked at a Goshen residence, pleading for help.
Authorities tracked down the two men who allegedly admitted in an interview to the bizarre sex acts.
When police read Mooney his rights, he said that if he understood he would respond with a “woof.” He reportedly explained that “woofs” meant that his “puppy personality” comprehended, according to the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
Mooney told police that his personalities are split between a sex puppy, a sex slave and a person.
He also said he couldn’t recall whether he struck the victim because he “blacks out while he is in sex slave persona,” according to the police report.
Both men were arrested Saturday on charges of rape and false imprisonment. They are being held on bail at the Washington County Detention Center.
