Orlando, FL — Police arrested 30-year-old Donald Destin early Monday morning after the man reportedly broke into a Christian radio station and exposed himself before threatening to rape and rob the female host.
Police say the DJ at VOIX 98.9 was broadcasting a live prayer show at about 6:00 a.m. when Destin entered the studio uninvited, exposed himself and threatened to get rapey. A listener heard the threat and called 911.
“The microphone was on … they heard about everything,” said station manager Gary Pierre. “She left the microphone on and said, ‘Don’t kill me, let me give you money, don’t make sex with me.’ The guy came for two things: sex and money.”
Police say the woman remained calm and convinced Destin to follow her outside. Once outside, the woman locked herself in her vehicle and remained there until deputies arrived. At that point, Destin reportedly walked back into the station and stole several items from the woman’s purse before fleeing on foot. The entire incident was captured on surveillance video.
The victim was able to positively identify Destin from a photo line-up, and he was arrested about two blocks away from the station less than 12 hours later. He’s now facing charges of burglary, battery and attempted sexual battery.
Destin’s criminal history is extensive… his priors include stalking, exposure of sexual organs, lewd behavior, trespassing, drug possession and assault.Tags: Attempted Rape, Burglary, Donald Destin, VOIX 98.9
