Former UFC fighter Jon Tuck was arrested earlier this week in Guam on suspicion of sexual assault.

A report from the Pacific Daily News has revealed that an unnamed 21 year old woman claimed, through a complaint filed in the supreme court, that the assault took place at a restaurant known as Jardee’s on the morning of March 4.

The court documents show that Tuck allegedly grabbed the woman by the wrist after she had just finished eating and then allegedly dragged the victim to the far right corner of the Pearl By The Sea chapel. Tuck would then allegedly push the woman against the wall before undressing and raping her.

Tuck allegedly told the woman that “no one can know (about what happened) due to my work.” The woman would then get dressed and return to the restaurant, where she would tell a friend what just happened, stating that Tuck had committed the act of rape. 

It has also been reported that Tuck, who is already out of jail on a $20,000 bond, has been charged with four counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct as second-degree felonies, and two counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct as misdemeanors.

Guam’s Office Of The Attorney General has also issued the following statement on Tuck being released on bail:

“The court, not the Office of the Attorney General, decides whether to confine or release a defendant while awaiting trial. In this case, based on the seriousness of crimes that are alleged against defendant Tuck, the OAG asked that he be confined unless he was able to post bail. The court denied the OAG’s request. The OAG is disappointed with the court’s decision.”

Video of the incident, which has not been released publicly at this time, shows the woman’s friend confronting Tuck about the incident, leading to the following exchange (via Bloody Elbow):

Reportedly, the video includes the friend telling Tuck, “She was not expecting you to pull her pants down and stick your (expletive) (expletive) inside her.”

Per the complaint, Tuck responded by saying, “I did not just go straight up into that, we were playing around.”

There has been no court date set yet as of this writing.
