The woman told Cem several times that she wanted out of the car, but Cem refused because he said he “loved her and had to take her back to Georgia with him,” according to the warrant.
She grabbed the car’s steering wheel and tried to force the gear shift into park, which forced Cem to pull over on the side of southbound I-65, police said.
He forced the woman into the back seat of the Camaro and told her he was going to impregnate her so she would be forced to marry him, according to the warrant.
When the Indiana State Police trooper arrived at the scene, he said Cem was on top of the woman with his pants and underwear partially down. The woman was “screaming and fighting underneath” him, and her dress was around her waist with her underwear partially pulled down.
Cem is charged with attempted rape, criminal confinement and theft, police said.
