Tennessee police say a man who tried to rape his friend’s mom at a sleepover was met with force, which they say in turn halted the brutal attack.
Jordan Corter, 18, attended a sleepover at his friend’s home in Arlington, where his friend’s mother took the family’s alcohol supply into her room before locking the door at about 2:30 a.m. Monday, authorities told WREG.
Approximately 15 minutes later, Corter allegedly knocked on the mother’s door and forced himself in when she opened the door. He then allegedly locked the door behind him and forced the woman onto a bed, where he stuck his hands down the victim’s pajama shorts, according to WLWT.
After the alleged assault, the woman successfully fought back, though during the struggle she suffered a black eye while defending herself, investigators told WMC. The victim managed to force a knee into Corter’s groin, police said, then proceeded to grab a pistol. She reportedly aimed the gun at Corter’s head while telling him to leave.
The woman didn’t initially call police, though after notifying her boss at work of what happened the following day, he reported the alleged atrocious act.
After authorities arrested and subsequently interviewed Corter, he cried and told detectives that he “should not be forgiven” for his actions, according to police documents obtained by WREG. The records also allege that Carter confessed that he “forced the victim to do things she didn’t want to do.”
Despite the serious allegations, the teen’s step-grandfather told WREG that Corter is “a good kid,” adding that, “he just graduated high school.”
Authorities later posted a message on Facebook, warning people to be aware of who they allow in their home.
“Know who you invite into your home,” the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office announced on the Facebook post.
Corter was ultimately booked into Shelby County Jail on charges of attempted rape and sexual battery. He is being held on a $30,000 bond.
