Loutfi forced himself, orally, on a woman at a home in Randolph County in November 2018, despite the woman begging Loutfi to stop, the complaint said.

The woman was able to escape from the home and was taken to a hospital by state police, to have a rape kit performed, court documents said.

Investigators got mouth swabs from Loutfi with his DNA and sent it to the West Virginia State Police Crime Lab, where it was found that his DNA matched that of the woman’s, troopers said.

Loutfi is being held in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail with bail set at $50,000.
