IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Some University of Iowa are disturbed after a man was arrested for 18 counts of sexual abuse.

Police say Nathan Schloss, an Iowa student sexually abused victims 18 times while they were incapacitated and recorded the encounters.

KWWL  heard from 23-year old Schloss in October, but that time he was the victim, after he allegedly caught his roommate beating and abusing his 8-week old cat on video.

Now Schloss is the one behind bars after police say he sexually abused women and recorded them over a span of 15 months.

And according to the complaints, the women were physically helpless

"It's weird that people like that are around here. I didn't think that stuff really happened," said UI student Kate Clesle.

That same camera that caught Schloss' roommate committing a crime, might be the same one Schloss used to record his victims, and police say some of the victims were completely unaware of the encounter or the recordings.

"I think it's very disgusting, said Elijah Simmons. "I think it's not right at all."

The criminal complaints details it all,  but each one mostly follows his same routine pattern where Schloss allegedly sexually abuse women since 2012, either in his bed or their own bed and victims couldn't fight back.

"That's weird, that's creepy, ugh," said Clesle. "He was around here, like that could have been me.

Schloss is in the Johnson County Jail on a $180,000 cash bond.

He faces 18 counts of third degree sexual abuse.

Each count carries a maximum 10-year sentence

" I'm surprised he hasn't got caught before," said UI student Caterina Scordato.
