FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) – Two men are being held in the Washington County Jail after allegedly drugging and raping a victim.

Jacob Lester, 26, and Benjamin Mooney, 31, were arrested Saturday, June 9 after a victim showed up at a residence in Goshen wearing only a jock strap and a blanket begging for help.

The victim told police they met up with the two men Thursday, June 7 for sex. According to the probable cause statement, the sexual encounter became dark and increasingly more uncomfortable at some point Thursday night.

The victim told police that the men gave them a sedative and was raped and beaten until they were able to escape Saturday morning.

According to police, the victim had severe whip marks all over their back and buttocks.

When asked why the victim was only wearing a jock strap, Lester said it was to keep the victim from having an orgasm without permission.

When Mooney was read his rights upon being arrested, he either stated he understood or he would “woof.” He said that he had three personalities, a sex puppy, a sex slave, or person. If he responded with “woof,” it meant he was understood under his puppy personality.

Mooney said he told the victim they had to be submissive and as a puppy, the master (Lester) would teach them lessons by beating them.

Mooney's bond is set at $100,000 and his arraignment hearing is set for July 18.

Lester's bond has not been set yet. His bond hearing is June 13.
