My mouth was duct-taped. My face was duct-taped, and he would un-duct-tape me to get bank codes and wire things out of my accounts. He put a dildo next to me, and he’s like, ‘Oh, I’m not gay, I’m not gay.’ And then he pulled my shorts a little bit.” Did the assailant force the dildo on him, as reported? “There was no sex stuff whatsoever — that was untrue.”
