(as reported to Minneapolis Police on November 25, 2019)
Brandon invited me over for a romantic lunch, we played outside and inside with the dogs (4 videos available). At 2pm Brandon asked me to lay down and nap with him. We kissed & cuddled in bed afterward but did not have sex. He got completely naked tried to get me naked also but I would not. He said he liked my restraint about not having sex but he “really does want to have sex with me soon”. He said he “has wanted me for so long and he has no sex life with Dave, he doesn’t even feel like he has a relationship with him like a boyfriend, just a trophy on a shelf.” He said “You are more my boyfriend than he is, and I love everything about you. Think about it, Seriously.” Brandon goes to work at 4:30. I went home and met with Tim around 8:00pm for Northrop Nights Art. I picked Brandon up on his break around 8:30 and dropped him off around 9pm. Dave has arrived unexpectedly. Brandon calls at 9:45pm and asks us to come back as it is dead and he will be getting off early, and will I come visit and keep him company. Tim and I go to LUSH. Dani asks us to go to the 19 Bar. Brandon got done early and will come with Dani to The 19.
Brandon texts he is off and going to see us at the 19. Tim Brandon Dani and I meet at The 19 and play some pool and drink. Dani and Brandon smoke some weed on the patio. Brandon is drinking very very heavily. He starts to hold my hand, kisses me on the neck and follows me to the bathroom where he pushes me against the door and kisses me stopping anyone from coming in. He presses his erection into me and tells me he wants me so bad. He said “This afternoon I realized how deeply I am in love with you and how happy you will make me if we were together. You are the most beautiful man I have ever met and I have never wanted anyone as much as I want you”. I try to laugh it off saying he better stop as he knows a lot of Dave’s friends come here and Dani may see (he has told her we are just friends and not seeing each other). I told him I promised to play a game with her and he let me go. AsI left he said “We will continue this later”.
The bar is closing and Brandon asks if we can all come back to my place and continue. I say sure as it is a nice night out and we can have a fire or hot tub. Dani said she has to stop and check on her dog, Taco, and would it be ok if she brought him. I said that’d be great. I had to stop and get gas and as I pulled up Brandon texted he was at the back door and I told him how to get in.This was about 2:15am. Tim hadn’t shown up by 2:50am and I started to get worried. I was trying to get a fire going but no luck so Dani became the firemaster and Brandon and I sat drinking. He was drinking straight whiskey and was getting pretty drunk and silly, I drank cider. He played music and Tim showed up at 3:00pm. Tim realizes he is tired and has to leave at 4:00am. Dani continues to work the fire and smoke weed, and Brandon drinks. He pulls my chair close to him and begins to hold my hand, then massaging my feet, and begins to kiss them very seductively. He then begins to try and kiss me. Dani's face shows shock and surprise and smiles. I said “Brandon, Dani is here…” and then Brandon jumps up and says ‘FUCK THIS! FUCK DAVE! I LOVE YOU AND IF I WANT TO KISS YOU I WILL! “ He then pulled me up and kissed me extremely passionately and for a long time. He looked at Dani and said “see you were right, we are going to end up together '' We all laughed and continued to chat and listen to music and play with Taco. Dani sat across the yard in the hammock and I got blankets for all of us. I sat and watched Dani and Brandon fall asleep and cleaned up. Dani got up at about 7:15am and got ready to leave and asked me what all this day and night really meant and how serious he was. Did he truly want me as his boyfriend exclusively and was it time to take the next steps. I got Brandon up and put him to bed and took his shoes and socks off at 7:30am. I got partially undressed and went to bed with him.
At about 9:30am I woke up laying on my stomach with Brandon naked on top of me and he had pulled my clothes off and tried to put his penis in me. I struggled and he was using his hands to pin my arms down. The conversation:
Iain: No! Don’t. You're hurting me.
Brandon: Iain, I love you so much. We can’t wait any longer
Let this happen. I want you so much
Iain: No not like this
(he then started kissing and then biting my neck)
Brandon: Yes I love you. I want to cum in you
(by this time he was fully in me and thrusting very hard
and my head was hitting the headboard and holding me down on the bed)
Iain: Please can we stop
Brandon: No. You love me don’t you? I want you and only you
Iain: Fine can we please at least use some lube. You are hurting me
Brandon: Tell me. You have to say it
Iain: Brandon I love you and I’m in love with you
Brandon: You better be. I love you too.
I reached and grabbed lube and threw it over my back and all over us and he proceeded to have sex and be aggressive holding me tightly and then he became very vocal saying a lot that was hard to remember as I was just trying to endure the pain. He began screaming as he orgasamed. He said “You're the only person I have ever been able to cum in. You are my Life. I love you so much”
Brandon held me for about 15 minutes or so and fell asleep. I got up and went to shower and noticed I was dripping blood from my butt. After showering I went back to bed and Brandon held on to me as a big spoon and we fell asleep.
We woke up around noon and Brandon seemed very confused. He couldn’t recall a lot of the night or having
sex but could definitely tell by his body and the red marks on my arms and neck we had sex. He began to cry and apologize. He said he was so confused and everything I told him sounds exactly like how he would have sex and what he
would do. He kept apologizing and said he didn’t want me to feel like it was rape. He said “I know I can be aggressive in sex and it was just aggressive sex wasn’t it? It wasn’t rape. Tell me you won’t say it was rape. I love you and don’t want you to hate me.” I told him I don’t hate him and I am just as confused as he knew where I stood about not having sex with him if he wasn’t committed to me fully. When he learned I was bleeding it made him cry very hard. He said “I never want to physically hurt you or anyone. That’s not me. I’m not denying what happened or what you say but I am so upset I did that to you” I tried to calm him down.
He went and got himself some water and came back. He checked his phone and saw Dave hadn’t even called or texted to see where he was. I could tell he was disappointed. I told him I was sorry for that and he said “Everything about you is better. You really care and show it. I’m sorry I don’t remember but i’m glad you were the first and only guy I have ever completely had sex with. It really tells me how deep down I will always love and want you”. He went to the bathroom and I called Tim to tell him what had happened. I told him I would text him later as Brandon wanted me to take him to LUSH. I took Brandon to LUSH and he texted me throughout the day as he was drinking there and at The Eagle and then The Saloon until 1:30am. Monday morning.
