Alec Cook, a 20-year-old University of Wisconsin student, has been accused of multiple, serial sexual assaults on campus. Earlier this October, a student at Wisconsin told police that Cook had forced himself on her. Following that accusation, at least three other female students have come forward accusing Cook of also sexually assaulting them.
As more and more news comes out about Cook and his habits, it’s becoming more and more clear that there’s something very dangerous about Alec Cook.
Who Is Alec Cook?
Alec Cook was a 20-year-old senior at The University of Wisconsin who was majoring in real estate and urban land economics. He was recently placed on emergency suspension by the school after a third alleged victim came forward about his assault. A statement from the school reads “This is a serious case and the university is responding.
Based on the severity of the allegations and the potential impact on the campus community, the university is disclosing that this student is under emergency suspension from the institution.”
Cook is currently under on charges of second-degree sexual assault, strangulation, and false imprisonment. If new evidence is to be believed, there is good chance he could face more charges from other victims.
The first victim, the one who initially told police, reported that she and Cook first met after she almost hit him with her bicycle. The two then kept in contact over Facebook, and eventually met up in the library to study. After leaving for his apartment around 11:30 P.M., the woman told police that the two started talking and that she told Cook she was looking for a long-term relationship, not casual sex. The report continues to say that Cook responded by telling her that they wouldn’t do anything too crazy, and that he kept forcing himself on her despite her repeated attempts to get him to stop. She also claims that Cook refused to let her leave.
When she got home, she texted her brother and said Cook held her in a “death grip,” preventing her from seeking help. “I don’t feel like I was assaulted…I don’t think. But I feel very weird,” she wrote, according to the Journal [source].
The victim told police four days after the alleged assault, Cook was subsequently arrested and then released on signature bond two days later. But after news of his first arrest hit the news, another victim came forward because she felt empowered by another girl telling her story. Cook turned himself into the police after the second accusation.
One day after Cook turned himself in, a third victim came forward, saying that Cook had raped her in his apartment last year.
Police searched Cook’s home after his arrest and found some pretty alarming evidence. Inside his apartment, they found a little black book which had some pretty f*cked up stuff written inside it. From WKOW:
Court records show a black leather book was seized by police from Cook’s apartment last week. The search warrant affidavit states a series of women’s names were inside the book.
“Each entry showed how he met the female, and what he liked about them. Further entries went on to document what he wanted to do with the females,” the affidavit states.
“Disturbingly enough there were statements of ‘kill’ and statements of ‘sexual’ desires,” the affidavit states.
The seizure of notebooks from Cook and their reference to potential sexual assault or stalking victims was first reported Monday by 27 News.
So not only was this guy listing victims and what he wanted to do with them, it also gave some ways he liked to stalk some of the girls. Yes, this man is innocent until proven guilty but things aren’t looking so promising for the 20-year-old.
