Far Hills, N.J.-based real estate investor Steve Kogut stands accused of brutally assaulting, abusing and manipulating his ex-girlfriend.

The Indigo Management boss attacked, threatened and raped his former partner, a lawsuit filed anonymously in Manhattan Federal Court alleges.

“I want you to suffer like Hitler made people suffer,” Kogut allegedly said, according to the New York Post.

Kogut is said to have flown into rages, beating his girlfriend and forcing her to have sex with him at his Soho loft. When she resisted, he allegedly threatened to turn the police on her.

“I’ll punch myself in the eye and I’ll blame you,” Kogut allegedly said, according to the Post. “I know how the police work. I get the police. I have experience with cops and how to press charges.”
