Keanu Labatte, 19, is accused of raping, waterboarding and beating his girlfriend of two months inside their dorm room at St. Catherine University, an all-girls school in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The complaint alleges that Labatte arrived at the university to see his girlfriend on Thursday, September 7, and discovered texts, photographs and social media posts that “infuriated” him. In response, Labatte is accused of taking her phone, raping her and strangling her until “she couldn’t breathe, she felt dizzy and she saw stars,” according to the complaint. On Sept. 9, the complaint alleges that Labatte had the victim lie down in a bathtub, put a washcloth on her face and watered her.

The next day, according to the complaint, the victim convinced Labatte to let her leave the bedroom to go to the cafeteria.
