(STMW) A 33-year-old man was allegedly held at gunpoint and forced to have sex with a woman in the backseat of a car after her female friend offered him a ride.
The man pleaded with one of his attackers — who demanded he place his hands on her breasts and buttocks during the attack — to stop, Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Amanda Pillsbury said Thursday.
He eventually escaped, running out of the car naked into a taxi where a cab driver helped drove him home to the suburbs, Pillsbury said.
The man had been walking early that morning when 25-year-old Cierra Ross allegedly pulled up and offered him a ride.
While driving, Ross pulled out a black revolver and ordered the man, who was in the passenger seat, to get in the back and have sex with her friend, Pillsbury said.
The woman in the backseat demanded that he take off his clothes and the man complied before he was assaulted, Pillsbury said.
The two women also took $200 from the man, his credit cards and iPhone, according to a police report.
When the victim noticed a nearby cab’s headlights, he fled, Pillsbury said.
The cab driver let the man use his cell phone to email himself a picture of Ross’ license plate number, Pillsbury said.
The victim later identified Ross in a lineup.
Ross, who also uses the alias Octavia Brown, was arrested on Tuesday, the police report said.
The other woman has not been charged.
Ross, who appeared in court Thursday in Jordan gym shoes and a black and red striped shirt, has previous misdemeanor prostitution convictions.
The mother of two currently is a waitress at Denny’s, her defense attorney told Judge Israel Desierto.
Desierto described the facts of the case as “somewhat unusual” before ordering Ross, of Olympia Fields, held in lieu of $75,000 bail for aggravated criminal sexual abuse and armed robbery.

Thirst has been given a whole new meaning. The moment you have to threaten someone's life to have sex is the moment you should consider online dating or just getting a toy. I don't know if I'm more surprised by her high spirited pursuit of sex or the fact that a woman's being charged with rape. Either way it goes, this is way out of line. Then for her to show up to court wearing Jordans...smh. Come on now.
