Oklahoma City police arrested a man on Friday who is accused of holding a woman against her will and raping her multiple times.

The victim called police at about 11:30 a.m. Friday after she got away from the suspect and ran to a business for help.

According to a police report, the victim had met the suspect, 28-year-old Zohaiv Dastgir, six months ago through a friend. The victim said she had consensual sex with Dastgir for money.

On Sunday, July 20, the victim said Dastgir asked her to come to his apartment again. When they began drinking alcoholic beverages at the apartment, the victim said Dastgir gave her three Percocet 10 pills and one Xanex pill.

The victim told police that Dastgir became angry with her over a Facebook photo. That’s when Dastgir raped her the first time.

Dastgir, police said, used speaker wire and a belt to bind the victim’s hands and feet as he held her against her will in his apartment. The victim said Dastgir raped her multiple times throughout the days she was there.

When the victim asked Dastgir why he was doing this, Dastgir reportedly said “I got a bad vibe for you and you are just trying to steal from me.”

The victim told police that at one point, Dastgir hit her in the eye. He reportedly cut the victim’s hair with a steak knife, and hit the victim in the arm multiple times with the knife.

According to the police report, Dastgir told the victim “This is how we treat women where I am from,” and that “You think you have it bad now, wait until I am done with you and you will be scared of my kind.”

On Friday, the victim said Dastgir tied her up and they drove to an IBC bank. Once Dastgir went inside, the victim said she was able to free one hand and get out of the car. She then ran to an insurance building and called for help.

Dastgir was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on multiple complaints, including rape, kidnapping, no state driver’s license, and traffic charges.
