London, United Kingdom (AHN) – A Chanel model’s husband has been arrested after a woman accused him of raping her during London Fashion Week. Hairstylist Shawn Mount, who is married to 23-year-old catwalk beauty Heidi Mount, is facing allegations that he raped a 24-year-old woman at a five-star London hotel.
Shawn, 30, was questioned at a central London police station, while the alleged victim, who remains unnamed for legal reasons, has been interviewed by specialist sex crimes detectives. The two allegedly attended a party together when the incident happened, while Heidi was on an assignment in Milan.
The alleged victim was referred to a victim support center.
A Scotland Yard spokesman has been quoted by the Daily Mail as saying, “We received a complaint of a serious sexual assault at 1:30 a.m. on September 20 at a central London hotel.”
“A 30-year-old man was arrested on September 21 on suspicion of rape and bailed to return to a London police station in November. He has not been charged and we are still investigating.”
Shawn is expected to return to the police on November 10.
Heidi, who married Shawn in 2007, has modeled for Armani Jeans, Bally, and Prada, and has walked the catwalk for Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Viktor & Rolf, and Christian Dior. She also became the face of Chanel in 2008.
The couple has a young son together.
