A man has been arrested for sexually assaulting a lesbian woman, and police said he told her that he would “fix the gay”.

According to Deseret News, Adam Quinn Atwood, 34, was arrested on Wednesday March 26 and police in Salt Lake City, Utah, are investigating the sexual assault as a possible hate crime.

He has been arrested on charges of object rape, forcible sodomy, kidnapping, aggravated sexual assault and forcible sexual abuse.

The lesbian woman told police that Atwood was her friend’s husband, and that she visited the couple on the evening of Sunday, March 22, in Salt Lake City.

At some point during the night, her friend fell asleep and she said that Atwood began “touching and grabbing her”.

According to a police affidavit, Atwood then sexually assaulted her, asking her “if she was sure she didn’t like it” and “if she was sure she was gay”.

When she tried to escape, she said he “grabbed her by the back of the neck and forced her back into the house”, before choking and sexually assaulting her again in the basement of his house.

The victim repeatedly told him she was gay and wasn’t attracted to men, in an attempt to get him to stop, but she said he “told her he was going to fix the gay”.

After further horrific sexual abuse, the woman was able to escape, get out of the house and reach her car.

Police wrote in the affidavit: “[She] stated she made it to her vehicle and as she locked the doors the suspect ran up to the car and yelled ‘you better not tell anyone’… The victim submitted to a sexual assault examination which documented several injuries that are consistent with the victim statements.”

According to Deseret News, Atwood said when he was arrested: “I did not rape anyone.”
