So this terrible and disgusting thing happened. A Japanese man allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted more than 100 women after making them believe they were taking part in a sleep study. That man, 54-year-old Hideyuki Noguchi, was arrested for distributing ads seeking volunteers for “clinical research measuring blood pressure during sleep,” and filming the assaults once they were sedated and unconscious. Police have confirmed at least 39 victims, aged from their teens to their 40s, and are working on identifying scores more raped and abused for two years. Read about it here… [TheGuardian]

The father rushed the boy to the hospital — his condition is unknown. The man, Larry Leroy Floyd, was accused of aggravated domestic battery. Read about it here… [HuffPost]
And in more positive (and bad shero woman) news, this Utah woman delivered her own baby WHILE DRIVING TO THE HOSPITAL. Is there an award for that? Devi Mariah Ostler and a baby boy, her third child, are doing just fine. Read about it here… [AP]
