A group of men and women were forced at gunpoint to perform sex acts on the suspect and each other. 

Chandler police report that on November 17 they were called to an apartment complex near Arizona Avenue and Pecos Road. In the laundry room, they reportedly found two men holding down another man with multiple injuries to his face. 

Police learned that the man was 24-year-old Juan Carlos Cortez Murillo. While inside the laundry room, Murillo allegedly pulled a gun on the five victims, forcing the women to perform sex acts on him. 

He also reportedly watched as he forced them to perform sex acts on each other. Police say this lasted for about 30 minutes until the men saw a chance to overpower Murillo and get the gun away from him. 

The women managed to escape at that time and get help from other apartment tenants. 

Upon his arrest, Murillo denied all the allegations. 

He is being held without bond on sexual assault charges.
