A 19-year-old Tucker man was arrested in Indiana earlier this month after he tried to rape a woman he wanted to take back to Georgia and marry, police said.

Kung Bik Cem allegedly told the woman, who he met through Facebook, that he wanted to “steal” her and impregnate her so she would have to marry him, according to the arrest warrant.

The woman told police she never met Cem in person and no longer wanted the relationship, but he refused to leave her alone.

However, Cem and a friend drove from Jacksonville, Fla., where Cem attends college, to a wedding in Indianapolis that the woman was attending, according to police. The woman told police she had no desire to meet Cem at the wedding.

At the ceremony, Cem took her cellphone to get her to come with him, police said. In an effort to get her cellphone back, she sat in Cem’s car, but Cem drove away.

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.
