Another student, identified as NSN, told police that Cook would grab her breasts and buttocks inappropriately whenever they were paired in their ballroom dance class. She told police Cook choked and slapped her face against her will. Dean of Students Lori Berquam has sent several campuswide emails, reassuring students that university officials are assisting police, support is available for those who need it, and the university will take seriously and fully investigate any complaints of sexual assault. "I realized he was bigger and stronger". Cook confirmed that he had sex with the woman but denied that she had ever said "no" or pushed him away, according to court documents.
When the incident was reported on the news, a second woman contacted police to say that she had been sexually assaulted by the man in February.
She said that when they searched his apartment, they found a notebook documenting what she called "grooming and stalking techniques".
But then, after studying with him at a college library, they went to his apartment near the campus where he started kissing her, at first lightly, then forcefully.
"I think that victims often feel betrayed by the system, by the criminal justice system", Thornley-Parisi added. "I thought I could now finally tell".
Another woman told police that she met Cook during a human sexuality class and began dating him in January, the complaint said.
"Much of what has been reported on there has been, for lack of a better expression, character assassination of my client", Van Wagner told the State Journal, "calling him everything under the sun, calling him a 'dangerous alpha male.' Those things are frightful things to be accused of, but more importantly, that has prompted a lot of people to apparently go back and re-examine their relationships with him and conclude, whether accurately or not, that they were the victim of a crime".
The former U-W student faces more than 30 counts of sexual assault in a case involving dozens of women.
The encounter left the woman with tearing in her vagina, patches of irritated skin on her scalp where her hair was torn out, and scratches on her arms, according to the complaint.

After she reported the alleged assault, at least four other women came forward, including two others, both 20-years-old, who were similarly lured back to his apartment after agreeing to go on a date with him.
According to WKOW, the notebook included a series of women's names.
"I understand that people are not interested in feeling sorry for my client", Nicholson said. "Disturbingly enough, there were statements of "kill" and statements of "sexual" desires", he said. The judge set a $200,000 cash bail.
Cook's attorneys said they don't believe the ballroom assaults took place and they questioned why no witnesses to the ballroom assaults were cited in the complaint.
