US Embassy staffer accused of drugging and sexually assaulting 23

A staffer at the US Embassy in Mexico City has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting at least 23 women after authorities discovered photos and videos of the alleged victims unconscious in his bed.  

The shocking allegations against Brian Jeffrey Raymond, 44, were laid bare in documents filed in US District Court in Southern California earlier this month. 

Prosecutors charged that Raymond 'has exerted power and control over unconscious women' in 'numerous' attacks dating back to 2011.  

His alleged pattern of abuse wasn't uncovered until May, when police found a 'naked, hysterical woman desperately screaming for help' from the balcony of his apartment in Mexico City, which was leased by the US Embassy there. 

Raymond, whose position at the embassy was not specified in court documents, quit his job and left Mexico for the US a day after police opened their investigation into the May incident. 

During the investigation authorities found approximately 400 photos and 25 videos which showed at least 21 different unconscious women partially undressed or nude.  

Some of the images allegedly showed Raymond nude and aroused as he held victims' open, played with their limbs and put fingers in their mouths to show they were unconscious.

Raymond was arrested on one count of coercion and enticement on October 9 in La Mesa, California, where he had been living with his parents after leaving Mexico.  

Prosecutors said they plan to bring additional charges in a motion asking a judge to deny him bond. The judge agreed, ordering that he remain in federal custody until his trial.  

The prosecutors said they believe Raymond had other victims in addition to the 23 described in court documents, which were first reported by the Daily Beast on Tuesday. 

That belief is based on 'numerous' text conversations between him and various women who 'appear to be asking the defendant what happened, apologizing for blacking out, asking if they had sex, and indicating that they had no memory of their night with the defendant', prosecutors wrote in the bond motion.

At least nine of the alleged attacks took place at the apartment in Mexico City that Raymond lived in when he began working for the embassy in 2018, prosecutors said.

It was at that apartment that Mexico City police discovered one of his alleged victims crying out for help on May 31 of this year. 

The woman, who appeared severely intoxicated and couldn't walk on her own, was taken to a hospital by ambulance. Doctors found that she had 'injuries consistent with vaginal and anal penetration' as well as bruises all over her body. 

The woman said she couldn't remember having any physical contact with Raymond, whom she'd met on Tinder. 

She said she and Raymond had gone on a date at a shopping center, where they drank wine outside before moving to his apartment, after which she abruptly blacked out.  

Raymond was detained by police the same day the woman was hospitalized. He said he'd had sex with the woman but insisted it was consensual.
