Police arrested designer and friend to celebs Anand Jon on charges he raped at least two women. According to police records, Anand went on a woman-hating spree that lasted almost three years. Thank God this asshole is off the streets for now.
According to the felony complaint obtained by TMZ, Jon allegedly committed a variety of horrific acts on four separate victims between October of 2004 and March 5, 2007. Along with two counts of forcible rape, Jon is also facing charges of “sexual battery by restraint, attempted forcible oral copulation and two counts of committing a lewd act upon a child.”
In the document, police claim that Anand, 30, used an accomplice during the alleged sexual battery and forcible copulation. The investigation into that person is ongoing.
Jon, who has been featured on MTV and is known to hang out with Paris Hilton, Paula Abdul and Michelle Rodriguez, was arrested by Beverly Hills Police on March 6, after one of his accusers came forward to authorities. An investigation uncovered three other potential victims, the youngest of whom is 15-years-old.
Jon is currently behind bars in a Los Angeles County jail and is due back in court to face a judge on April 4th.
Paris Hilton was scheduled to attend a major launch of Anand Jon’s new line in India in Fall 2007, where Jon was born. The New York based designer has appeared on “America’s Next Top Model.” AJ Jeans were unveiled on Valentine’s Day at MAGIC, a huge fashion industry convention in Las Vegas.
In 2004, Anand was featured in the “Power & Influence” list in Newsweek. He was also selected by then NYC Mayor Rudolph Giuliani for a 2000 showcase as one of the top seventy-five designers in the world. Anand’s hand-painted Medusa Jeans retail for a whopping $720.
Anand nor his celeb friends have made any comment yet regarding his arrest.
