SOUTHPORT, Indiana — A love-crazed wacko obsessed with a woman he met online, tried to “steal” her from a wedding in Indiana in order to impregnate her and force her to be his wife, authorities said.
The alleged culprit, identified as 19-year-old Kung Bik Cem, of Tucker, Ga. then attempted to rape the victim when she resisted and was only stopped by when a passing Indiana state trooper pulled him away, the Indianapolis Star reported.
According to Johnson County prosecutors, Cem became infatuated with the woman on Facebook and had tried to win her affection even though she had rebuffed him.
Even though they had never met in person, Cem figured out that she would be at her cousin’s wedding in Southport, Indiana and drove there on March 25 and sat down next to her at the ceremony. He then allegedly took her phone and coaxed out to his Chevy Camaro in the parking lot outside.
Police say the woman was led to believe he would return the phone if she got into the car with him, but when she did, he sped off and drove to the interstate with the intention of taking her to Georgia.
As he drove, the woman grabbed the steering wheel and pulled the gear shift into park, forcing Cem to pull over, police said. She then took the keys and threw them out the window.
Cem then allegedly forced her into the back seat and attempted to rape her. He was only stopped when State Trooper Joseph Malone arrived at the scene and spotted Cem on top of the woman with his pants pulled.
Malone the “forcibly removed” Cem from the vehicle and placed him under arrest.
Cem has been charged with attempted rape and criminal confinement, both felonies, and misdemeanor theft. He was released after posting $19,000 bond.
