LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — UPDATE FEB. 4: The arrest report for Habib Hogue has been released. Hogue is facing 4 counts of sexual assault, 2 counts of kidnapping, battery by strangulation to commit sexual assault, and battery with intent to commit sexual assault.

According to the arrest report, Hogue lured the victim to his apartment on Dec. 17 by promising her $3 for bus fare. When she realized he was not going to give it to her and attempted to leave, he reportedly attacked her and choked her unconscious. When she came to, he was holding her and rocking her while he rubbed her head and telling her that he was tired of people trying to leave him.

He then told her they were going into the bedroom. She asked to call her kids if he was going to kill her and he supposedly replied "I'm not going to kill you, at least right now."

Hogue then sexually assaulted the woman in his bedroom. Afterwards, she convinced him to take her to buy cigarettes. While at 7-Eleven, a patrol car pulled up and she made contact with the officers. Hogue took off but was later taken into custody and identified by the victim.

The arrest report also revealed that Hogue may have almost commited sexual assault on Dec. 25. During that incident, the victim said that she was hanging out at the 7-Eleven near Twain Avenue and Paradise Road when Hogue offered her $60 for sex.

When she went with him to his apartment, he allegedly put a dog collar on her, tied her hands, and raped her. After he finished, the victim says she ran out of the apartment naked and ran into 2 strangers who called 911. However, she refused to go to the hospital or press charges.
