HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A tourist couple accused of luring a Japanese woman to their Waikiki hotel room and then sexually assaulting her multiple times remained behind bars Monday.

Newly-released court documents provide graphic details of the assault, saying that the victim attempted to escape on multiple occasions and was raped at least four times.

Police have charged 46-year-old Darrell Dorch and his wife, Nagisa, with multiple counts of kidnapping and sexual assault in connection with the incident May 1.

Authorities said the 26-year-old victim befriended the couple April 30, and they invited her to dinner later that night. She declined the offer initially, but stayed in touch via a communications app.

The next day, the victim was invited to meet the couple again at the Outrigger Waikiki swimming pool, court documents said. She agreed and headed over to the hotel.

When she arrived, court documents say, Nagisa Dorch asked the victim to accompany her up to their hotel room to pick out a bathing suit. The two women went upstairs and Darrell Dorch followed.

When they entered the room, the husband and wife got intimate, and the victim reported feeling uncomfortable. But when she tried to leave, Darrell Dorch allegedly physically assaulted her ― punching her at least 10 times ― before forcing her to perform sexual acts.

During the alleged sexual assault, Nagisa Dorch did nothing to help the victim, court documents allege. Instead, police said, the woman translated her husband’s sexual demands to the victim.

After several hours, police said, the couple’s minor son knocked on the door of the hotel room and Nagisa Dorch answered the door. That’s when Darrell Dorch went onto the balcony and his wife escorted the victim out of the hotel room, police said. The victim subsequently called police.

Nagisa Dorch made her initial court appearance Monday.

Her aggregate bail is set at $300,000, while Darrell Dorch’s bail is set is at $500,000.
