Bond set at $75k for businessman accused of raping woman

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Bond was set at $75,000 for a Charleston businessman accused of raping a woman on his boat.

Authorities charged Sam Mustafa with first-degree criminal sexual conduct. Charleston police say on June 26, 2011, the 30-year-old victim was on Mustafa's boat, "The Southern Lady," with the suspect and a number of other people.

According to an affidavit, Mustafa threw the victim onto a bed in a cabin room, removed her bikini bottoms and had nonconsensual sexual intercourse with her. Investigators say the victim yelled at the defendant and begged him to stop. 

Police records state that as soon as the suspect got off the victim, the victim went to another cabin where a witness found her crying. The victim texted her boyfriend immediately after the incident that she had been raped and got off the boat.

That evening, the victim went to MUSC where she received a sexual assault examination which showed bruising on her body and evidence of sexual intercourse. 

Police say there is a large disparity in the size of the victim and the suspect. The victim is 4'11" and 83 lbs while the suspect is 6'6" and 230 lbs.

Mustafa is the CEO of the Charleston Hospitality Group which owns Market Street Saloon, Toast, Tabbuli Grill, Sam's Corner and Charleston Downtown Limo.
