Police: Man Helped Free Womans Stuck Car    Then He Raped HerSt. Louis, Missouri – A man who helped get a woman’s stuck car out of the snow has been charged with raping her.

Reports are that on February 3, Cornell Hampton, 38, helped a woman push her stuck car out from behind a snowbank. Apparently feeling he deserved some sort of reward for being a Good Samaritan, he jumped into the woman’s car and demanded a ride.

When she refused, he put her in a choke-hold, threatened her and forced her to drive to a nearby vacant building. Lucky for her, three witnesses saw Hampton take the screaming woman into the building and called police.

“I seen this guy dragging this girl out, had his arm around her neck or whatever…I heard her saying something please don’t do this or please you don’t want to do this, something to that effect and I knew something was wrong,” said a witness.

Because these witnesses called 911, officers were able to catch Hampton in the act of raping the poor woman. As officers rescued the woman and attempted to subdue the suspect, Hampton allegedly kicked an officer. The victim was taken a hospital where she was treated for the sexual assault and other minor injuries.

Hampton is now facing 11 counts including forcible rape, kidnapping and assault on a law enforcement officer. He has been jailed on a $300,000 cash only bond.

Police tell say they plan on nominating the three citizens with the department’s snitch citizen service award.

    What the hell is this world coming to when you have to be suspicious of people that are trying to help you out in your time of need. This is quite an elaborate set-up. I hope this guy realizes the the big men in jail are probably not going to be doing him any favors before taking out their own sexual frustrations on him.

    As sad as it is to say, this woman is fortunate that the witnesses even called police. with everything that happens these days, many people simply look the other way. Hope he likes being on the receiving end of his little games!

    god. is it just me.. or did any other female think “i’d of drove that car straight into a fucking tree.”

  • melb1970

    Not just you babe, I could totally see wrapping his side of the car around a telephone pole.

    It’s very sad when you can’t even accept help from someone when you’re in need, without having to have 911 on speed dial, in hand and ready to call. I’d also be willing to bet this isn’t his first victim, fuckin’ animal.

    Sounds like he didn’t really help her out of good will anyways, he just wanted either a ride or a “ride”. garbage.

    St. Louis is a shithole. I hate to say that of any American major city, but…damn. Sometimes, you just have to call it like you see it. I was there for a week on business last year, and the two days we had to go sightseeing turned into one short day. We drove down to The Arch – the most notable tourist attraction in the city – and just across the road, lining the Mississippi, were HOARDS of drug dealers doing business blatantly in broad daylight… and these brothas weren’t selling weed, I can tell you that much. The one time we got out of the car to take a picture of a historic building, we were harassed by a group of drunk young men. We took the hint and stayed the fuck in our hotel until it was time to go to the airport.

    Granted, my week there doesn’t make me a St. Louis expert, but my first impression of it was a Detroit without the culture… and it’s not like Detroit is particularly steeped in culture itself.

    And, three fuckin’ cheers for the witnesses who called the cops.

    Browse this site fairly often and never had the need to reply or post before. I’ve been here in St. Louis most of my life and have never been harassed aside from the occasional fight back in school and I’ve lived in whats considered to be the rough areas of the city. Shame that your first and I’m guessing only visit turned out that way but St. Louis isn’t that bad.

  • Dirk

    “Snitchin” has to do with honor among thieves, while for a crime like this against a “taxpayer,” calling the cops is all in the game.

    With all due respect – and I figured I may offend some St. Louis resident – St. Louis has been kicking around the top 5 most dangerous cities in the U.S. for years. As a resident, I’m surprised you are unaware. In 2006, St. Louis was named THE most dangerous city in the U.S., Detroit coming in at number 2. It fell to number 2 in 2007 (Detroit becoming #1). 2008, St. Louis came in at number 4. In 2009 and 2010, it was again named the most dangerous city, with Detroit coming in at number 3 behind Camden, N.J..

    If you’ve been there most of your life, perhaps you have become numb to it. If you’ve never been, I recommend you visit Seattle some day to see where I’m comparing it to. Actually, you could visit Portland, OR, Oakland, CA, San Francisco, CA, San Jose, CA, Coeur d’Alene, ID, Billings, MT, Houston, TX, Detroit, MI, Washington D.C., Trenton, N.J. (another shithole), NY, NY, etc. etc. I’ve been to a lot of places in this country, and none were as sketchy as St. Louis. Unfortunately, stats back up my experience. That said, I haven’t been to post-Katrina N.O., yet. Statistically, STILL not as dangerous as St. Louis, but might be more sketchy in other ways.

    I’m truly sorry that my post is what drew you out of the shadows – I meant no disrespect; simply sharing my experience. I hope you’ll post more often in the future.

    The guy is most certainly a dick – but they are everywhere although lately the concentration seems to be coming from Florida and Ohio.

    I work in St. Louis and it does have its drawbacks and unfortunately Athena is right – it has the worst crime statistics in the country. However, I have lived in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Rock Springs, WY, and many places in between. All I can say about St. Louis is that downtown St. Louis has the above cities beat with respect to cleanliness and the people here are very nice – men open doors and give up their seats for women (that NEVER happens in California) – People are generally friendly and helpful. I have never felt scared or intimidated going to the Arch but I would avoid Sulard during Mardi Gras. As far as open drug deals and gangs are concerned, South Central, Watts, the Tenderloin or Oakland are far scarier places – generally the area by the Arch is a business district so I am here during the day – I have yet to see any drug dealers in the 3 years I have been here. As far as culture goes, it is too bad you were too scared to leave your hotel room – There are art museums, history museums, the Fox Theater, the City Museum, the City Garden and the Botanical Gardens and an amazing zoo (rated #1 in the country by Zagat) Sorry to hear your trip to St Louis was such a bust – should you ever have the opportunity to get out here again, hit me up and I can show you a better city that the one reflected in the crime statistics. :)

    Yeah St. Louis is currently the most dangerous city in America. However, I’ve heard from multiple teachers that St. Louis gets lumped together with East St. Louis and if there was ever a city to avoid, that would be it. Oh and I’m not sure what gave the impression that I was offended, I’m not. No point in getting offended over something so trivial. I was just saying that its a shame you didn’t enjoy your visit. There are a lot of sights and attractions to see as Miss_Ann_Thrope pointed out. I’ve always enjoyed the city museum myself.

    Yes they do lump ESL in with St. Louis – which is stupid because ESL is in Illinois across the river and not even part of St. Louis, Mo. I never could figure out why the hell they did that!

    I have been to St. Louis several times. Aside from being a shit hole it is just plain boring. It just seems to be 50 years behind most of the numerous U.S. cities I have visited (including the ones you mentioned). Other than being a hub, I would skip it.

    Of course they’re everywhere. I by no means meant to suggest STL has the market cornered on this kind of guy. :P

    I’m surprised to hear that you’ve never seen the drug dealers before. Don’t get me wrong – I’ll certainly take your word for it, it’s just that they were so natural and numerous, and their customers seemed to have no problem finding them, it seemed to me like a common occurrence. And what struck me about it is that, unlike the Tenderloin or, say East Palo Alto, this kind of thing was stationed in the tourism district. Those other areas you referenced are epicenters of poverty and crime – you know this going into it. I wasn’t prepared to encounter such casual hoodisms in a tourism district.

    And, to be fair, I realize the entire area is not necessarily like this. We were stationed out in Creve Coeur, and it was pretty nice out there, so when I say we stuck to our hotel, it’s a bit of an exaggeration. We did stay within a 3 mile radius, however. Oh, and speaking of Creve Coeur, there’s this restaurant out there, Gulf Shore (?), that I might travel back that way just to go there again. They played live music during the lunch hour! We ate there three times. :P

    Glad you’re not offended (I assumed it based on the fact that you bothered to respond, not by the tone of your post, BTW). It is trivial. Like I said, I’m no STL expert and made a point to admit as much right off the bat.

    *High five!*

    Yes, most rapists get away with rapes. Of course, most aren’t nearly this brazen. But we hear so much these days about awful crimes being being witnessed and no one doing anything to intervene, it gives people – criminals and good citizens alike – the impression that people will ignore this kind of criminal activity. But that’s just not true. The incidents where people fail to even call the cops make the news because they are the horrific exception, not the rule.

    @Athena Pre Katrina was bad, I lived there, cant even imagine what Post Katrina is like, (actually I can and it keeps me from going back home) NOLA is full of jealousy, (And thats what is the drive, you have something someone wants) where if you have a pair of plastic beads and someone wants them, they will kill you to get them, cut your belly open and let your guts fall into the gutter, long as they have the prize, cut you throat too, I couldnt live there anymore and moved elsewhere although it was still a beautiful city at that time, now its a wartorn ruin… I even still want to go back there… just to see, this is scary when I think about it…
