A boyfriend showed up at a university dorm room where his girlfriend of two months lived, held her captive for days, raped the victim and waterboarded her after becoming enraged by texts and photos on her phone, authorities in Minnesota allege.

Keanu Avery Labatte, 19, allegedly began the series of sex attacks in the St. Catherine University dorm in St. Paul last Thursday, Sept. 7, after the victim refused to have sex with him. Investigators said that the Granite Falls resident confiscated the victim’s phone, threatened her with a knife, and sexually assaulted, strangled, and beat her until Sunday morning — when she finally escaped by somehow persuading him to let her leave for some food.

“LABATTE went from giving her hickies, which was consensual, to forcefully removing her clothing and penetrating her vaginally and anally with his penis and fingers after she told him that she did not want to have sex,” the complaint said.

The suspect had allegedly made threats to kill both the victim and her family members, and suggested he’d hold the victim at knifepoint just like he did to a previous girlfriend.

The victim also said Labatte “yelled and physically assaulted her” and that he “used two hands on her neck to strangle her and threatened to kill her, while calling her a slut,” the complaint said.

At the time of the alleged days-long sex attack, Labatte was on probation in Yellow Medicine County for violating a harassment restraining order filed by the family of another victim, local ABC affiliate KSTP reported.
