"[She] told Omar, 'I don't like it,' and tried to scoot away from Omar," the report states, as reported by the Review-Journal. "Omar responded, 'OK.'"
Delaney reportedly left the room but came back a few minutes later and began removing the woman's clothing before performing a sex act on her. The woman said she was afraid he might become violent if she resisted.
Delaney left the room again but returned a few minutes later, climbed on top of her and raped her, according to the report.
The woman reportedly went to another wedding guest's room after the incident, but upon finding Delaney there she told the guest that she had had a bad dream and this was why she was upset, KTNV reported.
