Celebrity Designer Arrested on Rape Charges

3/13/2007 7:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anand JonFashion designer to the stars, Anand Jon, was arrested and jailed after cops say he raped two people.

According to the felony complaint obtained by TMZ, Jon allegedly committed a variety of horrific acts on three separate victims between October of 2004 and March 5, 2007. Along with two counts of forcible rape, Jon is also facing charges of "sexual battery by restraint, attempted forcible oral copulation and two counts of committing a lewd act upon a child."

In the document, police claim that Anand, 30, used an accomplice during the alleged sexual battery and forcible copulation. The investigation into that person is ongoing.
Anand Jon and Paula Abdul
Jon, who has been featured on MTV and is known to hang out with Paris Hilton, Paula Abdul and Michelle Rodriguez, was arrested by Beverly Hills Police on March 6, after one of his accusers came forward to authorities. An investigation uncovered two other potential victims, the youngest of whom is 15-years-old.

Jon is currently behind bars in Los Angeles County Jail, as reported earlier by New York Daily News, with bail set at $1,365,000. Jon is due back in court to face a judge on April 4.

Paris Hilton was scheduled to attend a major launch of Anand Jon's new line in India in Fall 2007, where Jon was born. The New York based designer has appeared on "America's Next Top Model." AJ Jeans were unveiled on Valentine's Day at MAGIC, a huge fashion industry convention in Las Vegas.

In 2004, Anand was featured in the "Power & Influence" list in Newsweek. He was also selected by then NYC Mayor Rudolph Giuliani for a 2000 showcase as one of the top seventy-five designers in the world. Anand's hand-painted Medusa Jeans retail for a whopping $720.

TMZ shot video of Anand Jon last July in the Hamptons at a benefit for Nature's Sanctuary, which was hosted by Michelle Rodriguez.

He's Boring now    



Hey Attorney Richards, I hope the judge revokes bond from fear of him leaving the country. Wouldnt be right, if in fact he has raped a child and those of age, for him not to do time for that crime here.

And if he does ever get out, he'll be registered, he wont even be allowed to live near a school or be with children unsupervised. Hey Richards, have you looked at the photos of him and the underage girls on here, you'd want him living next to yours?.

Even if hes found OJ innocent his shtick is done.
