Bail set at $100,000 in alleged rape at Fargo bar

Bail was set at $100,000 in Cass County District Court on Monday for the Kansas man accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a Fargo bar early Friday.

Majok Wany Anyit, 21, of Olathe, is accused of pulling a 22-year-old Fargo woman into a men's bathroom at The Hub, where he allegedly grabbed her by her head and her hair and forced her to perform oral sex on him.

Anyit was charged Monday with gross sexual imposition, a felony that upon conviction carries a mandatory 20-year prison term.

In the court complaint, police say the victim called out for help because she could hear other people in the bathroom. But nobody helped until a bar security officer intervened, court records show.

Anyit asked Judge Georgia Dawson for a lower bail amount, saying he needed to get out of jail to help take care of his grandmother. He said he's been in Fargo for two weeks.
