Abdul Razak Alhassan Found Not Guilty On Sexual Assault Charges

Abdul Razak Alhassan was accused of raping two women in their home in Saginaw, Texas on March 23 of 2018

However, after days of testimony from one of the accusers and jury deliberation, it was determined that Alhassan was not guilty of the charges levied against him according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (via MMA Junkie). Only one of the accusers, who was 20 at the time of the alleged incident, testified against Alhassan at the trial.

“When he put my face in the bed, the room was completely dark,” the younger woman said. “That’s when I found out there was a guy in my room. He pulled my dress up and sexually assaulted me. All I could see is my bed.”

It should be noted that the younger woman stated that she never say Alhassan during the act, as the alleged victims face was shoved into the bed as the rape took place. The younger victim's parents were also home during the act, but they were asleep in their bedroom, which was down the hallway.

The younger victim also admits that she froze when the second rape to the older woman took place in the same room.

“It was dark so I could not see him completely, but I could see someone was there,” the younger woman said. She was crying during her testimony, and she told the jury that she did not know how to say what the accused did next. “I didn’t know what to do. I was scared. I froze. It felt like I should have erupted. Instead, I didn’t. I froze.”

Both women allegedly met Alhassan at a bar that he was a bouncer at, with witnesses at the bar later saying the women were intoxicated before leaving, but the witnesses did disagree when testifying about how intoxicated the women were. Alhassan wound up driving both women home after an off duty police officer allegedly refused to help both women get a ride to their home.

Alhassan is still under a UFC deal as of this writing and after being found not guilty on the sexual assault charges, could return to action whenever the promotion opts to book him.
