Louisville, KY - A Louisville man who was part of a work program designed to integrate convicts back into mainstream employment has been charged for allegedly attempting to rape a co-worker at a Kentucky Humane society. The man was in a court room last Wednesday to answer to his charges.
According to a Louisville Metro Police report, Todd Duke, 41, was at the Louisville Humane Society as a volunteer worker through Dismas Charities – having been assigned to LHS since February. Dismas Charities is a not-for-profit company with the stated goal of “providing effective re-entry programs for offenders” – meaning re-entry into the workforce. Duke was living in a Dismas halfway house and performing the state-mandated community service work after a meth conviction.
Last Monday, Duke allegedly locked a female co-worker in a room, kissed the employee by force, and exposed himself to her. Duke then alledgedly grabbed the victim by the hair and tried to force her to perform oral sex on him. The report alleges that Duke continued the attack by trying to take the employee’s pants off in an effort to rape her.…Continue Reading
Macon, GA - With the apparent advent of the ‘God-fearing rapist,’ what was once simply a reprehensible and horrific act of aggression and subjugation has become something… more. Case in point: Jarvis Hurey, 28.
Prosecutors charged Hurey for allegedly breaking inside a 71-year-old woman’s home early July 7 and assaulting her. According to court documents, the woman was reading in her bed that night with her back door open but with the screen door closed and locked.
Senior Assistant District Attorney Don Kelly said that the victim looked up to see Hurey at her bedroom door. Hurey reportedly ‘ran forward and covered the woman’s head with a T-shirt.’ He then tried to rape her, Kelly added.
“What that man put me through that night was very painful, unbelievable, unimaginable and excruciating,” the victim said in court testimony. “He raped me mentally and physically.”
“…before he left, he turned to me and he said, ‘Will you pray for me?’ and then he walked out the door,” the woman added.
Police reportedly found a palm print and DNA evidence linking Hurey to the crime.…Continue Reading
Syracuse, NY — Tommy Lee Baker, a Level III sex offender, is back behind bars after police say he lured a 9-year-old girl out of her bedroom window and into his home early Monday morning.
The girl’s mother told police she put the kid to bed at about 9:00 p.m. the previous evening. When she peeked into the room to check on her at about 2:00 a.m., the kid was gone. The woman called 911 after noticing that the bedroom window and screen were open.
During their investigation, police learned that Baker had visited the family Sunday evening and soon determined that he is a Level III sex offender. When deputies confronted Baker at his residence, he denied any knowledge of the girl. However, police knew that he had been seen in the presence of a young girl some time after 10 p.m.
Baker’s home was searched and the girl was found in his bedroom. She was transported to an area hospital for medical evaluation.
Police say Baker lured the child out of the bedroom window and tricked her into leaving with him.…Continue Reading
Stamford, CT — Gerard Michael Landon, 46, was arrested Friday evening for sexually assaulting a woman who, in defense, bit off a “substantial” piece of his tongue.
According to police, the alleged attack occurred as the victim was exiting St. John’s Church at about 10:00 p.m. Thursday evening. Landon reportedly approached the woman, who is said to be in her mid-50′s, and asked for a hug. When the woman refused, police say Landon attacked, wrestling the woman to the ground and shoving his vile tongue in her mouth. The attack came to an abrupt halt, however, after the woman chomped down on Landon’s tongue.
“It was a substantial piece of his tongue,” said said Stamford Police Sgt. Paul Guzda. “About an inch worth.”
The offending hunk of meat was recovered at the scene and area hospitals were alerted to be on the lookout for a man with a serious tongue injury. In addition to the identifiable piece of tongue, police also recovered video surveillance recordings from the church that substantiated the woman’s story.…Continue Reading
Police say the victim was was pushing her 4-year-old son in a stroller at about 10:45 Monday morning when she saw 28-year-old Ray Allen Martin walking the opposite direction across the street. She said Martin crossed the road and began following her. Worried, she had just enough time to call her fiancé and let him know where she was and what was going on when Martin allegedly grabbed her from behind and placed his hand over her mouth.
The victim told police Martin dragged her toward the breezeway of a building, knocking the stroller over in the process. Martin reportedly yanked the woman’s pants and underwear down, repeatedly telling her to “shut up” as she screamed for her child. A man walking in the area intervened and Martin beat feet.
When he was apprehended a short time later, Martin reportedly told police he needed to confess.…Continue Reading
Fort Worth, TX — George Bradley, 32, is facing numerous charges after police say he set fire to his mother, then headed to a nearby charter school and attempted to sexually assault a teacher at knifepoint.
Bradley’s Monday apparently went a little something like this….
For reasons known only to him at this point, Bradley reportedly poured a flammable liquid on his 68-year-old mother and flicked his Bic. Screaming and in flames, the woman managed to escape the apartment to the safety of a neighbor’s home. Police say the woman is now listed in critical condition at a Lubbock hospital, suffering third-degree burns to much of her upper body.
A short time later, Bradley entered the main office at Rise Academy, announced that he had just killed his mother and asked the secretary to call 911. School administrator Audrey Saldivar said Bradley then grew agitated, locked the office door, pulled out a knife and forced a teacher into Superintendent Richard Baumgartner’s office.
“It was just random,” Saldivar said. “We didn’t know what was happening.”
In the meantime, Baumgartner had been informed of the situation and had just reached the office at the same time Bradley was locking the door.…Continue Reading
Burien, WA – I love it when criminals are also morons. 17-year-old Chris Lito, a student at my alma mater, Highline High School, is one such moron, thankfully. I still live here and shudder at the thought of this creep wandering our streets.
It was about 1:00 in the afternoon when the 16 year old victim was making her way to the local transit center. As she passed through an alley (directly behind the last house I rented!), she was reportedly accosted by Lito, who promptly dragged her into a secluded stairway. Police say he then began viciously beating her. When beating her didn’t work, he choked her until blackout. When choking her didn’t work, he threatened her with a brick he had picked up, holding it over her head. All the while, this sick fuck was trying to force her pants down as she struggled.
But this tenacious young gal wasn’t about to go out like that. Despite the violent assault she was suffering, she still managed to get out a scream that was loud enough to cause Lito to drop the brick and run.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
The child’s parents told police they had briefly left the child in Wilcox’s care last Friday. Upon their return to the home, they said they found Wilcox in bed with the child – he was completely naked and the child was unclothed from the waist down.
Police say the child’s father “momentarily detained” Wilcox before he managed to slither out of the home. The relationship between Wilcox and the child is unclear…one source claims he’s a family member and another says he’s a family friend.
In a telephone interview with jacksonsun.com, Wilcox’s ex-wife defended him, stating that he did not molest the child. She said Wilcox had been drinking and was passed out when the parents left the home, leaving the 3-year-old in the care of another child in the home…a 9-year-old. The woman claimed the toddler had crawled into the bed with Wilcox. “When he’s drunk, he does not move, does not wake up,” she said. …Continue Reading
Lincoln, Nebraska – Police are investigating an alleged sex assault that ended when the victim sent her attacker to the hospital after beating the crap out of his face with a frying pan.
Details are vague, but what is being reported is that a 20-year-old woman held a party at her apartment. After a night of drinking the woman fell asleep on the floor, only to be woken up by a 23-year-old man touching her inappropriately.
She told him to stop repeatedly, but the man persisted and became more aggressive. She ended up kicking him away from her and then smack him in the face four times with a frying pan she retrieved from the kitchen.
Police were called and the man was taken to the hospital suffering from fractures to an orbital bone and to his nose. Officer Katie Flood says citations are pending against the man once he is released from the hospital.…Continue Reading
Raleigh, North Carolina — Not too many details are available on this case yet, but a 57-year-old Raleigh man is in jail after police said he tried to rape and strangle a woman Thursday night. Clarence J. George is being held on a $2 million bond.
Raleigh police believe the victim was unwillingly restrained by George before he grabbed her neck and pinched her trachea all while attempting to rape the woman. It isn’t clear if the man was only trying to hold the woman down and keep her quiet, or if he was actually attempting to strangle her.
George is in custody in Wake County Jail and is facing one count of second-degree kidnapping, one count of assault by strangulation and one count of attempted first-degree rape, according to arrest warrants filed in the Wake County Magistrate’s Office.
With the online dating and networking sites available nowadays, I’m surprised people still find the need to attempt to rape unwilling women.…Continue Reading
Boulder, CO — Not a lot of punch to this one, but because dude supposedly used a skateboard as a weapon, I want to give him his well-deserved 15 minutes of shame.
According to police, 19-year-old Stephen Edward Siebold attacked his 21-year-old girlfriend Wednesday night after she refused to buy him beer. He allegedly bit the woman’s hand, hit her in the head, attempted to strangle her and knocked her upside the head with a skateboard. Police believe Siebold was under the influence of narcotics at the time of the attack.
Though he had already fled by the time police arrived, they managed to track him down later that evening and cage him like the animal he is. Siebold was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault, attempted sexual assault, obstruction of telephone service and domestic violence.…Continue Reading
COLUMBUS, Ohio — A teen has been accused of the attempted rape of a 10-year-old boy inside the Hilltop Branch Library on Tuesday.
The young boy was at the library with his older sister when he and 19-year-old Michael Hill both headed to the restroom. Surveillance footage shows the two entering but it is not clear on if the meeting was purely coincidental, or if the boy had been followed or enticed. But once inside, police say Hill coaxed the 10-year-old into a bathroom stall and tried to get him to perform a sexual act.
Luckily another man entered the restroom and saw what was happening. He took the younger boy out and walk him to the front desk where the staff called police. Hill was apprehended and subsequently charged with gross sexual imposition, kidnapping and attempted rape. He admitted to the crime and told police he knew what he did was wrong.
Although the kidnapping charge was not among the list of charges listed when he appeared before a judge today, he’s still in a lot of trouble.…Continue Reading

Fort Wayne, Indiana – A state conservative officer reportedly witnessed an 18-year-old man attempting to rape an 11-year-old girl on Monday. Luckily for the girl, the officer was there and was able to break up the alleged attack.
Conservative Officer Patrick Heidenreich was on patrol when he decided to investigate a car parked near the Tri State Motorcycle Club. According to the news release, Heidenreich saw a man attempting to rape a girl inside the parked vehicle. The man, identified as Jacob DeLong, was taken into custody and transported to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department. After being interviewed, DeLong was charged with Class B felony attempted rape.
Police say DeLong knew the victim. He had not abducted her, but authorities declined to specify how the girl ended up in the vehicle. The news release stated that DeLong may have victimized others, but Friedel declined to elaborate on what that meant, instead saying anyone who may have been a victim should contact him at the Sheriff’s Department.
The girl was taken into protective custody by the Department of Family and Children Services.…Continue Reading
Cleveland, Ohio — Robert Bonness is a retired police officer who apparently thinks the law doesn’t apply to him. He pleaded guilty on Wednesday to attempted rape and 24 other counts related to his collection of child pornography.
Police say Bonness responded to an advertisement posted on Craigslist for a father and daughter interested in a special person. For two months this pervert allegedly communicated with an undercover detective he thought was the father of a 12-year-old girl and arranged to meet them in North Olmsted in late October to have sex with the girl. When Bonness arrived, a search of his car turned up condoms, lubricant and sex toys. His home computer reportedly revealed hundreds of videos and photos of child pornography. After serving as a patrolman for 23 years, I’m surprised Bonness didn’t see this sting coming. It just goes to show how strong his urge was.
I know how much prison inmates love cops… and knowing that they love sex offenders, especially the kiddie kind, even more, I was really looking forward to a nice prison sentence for this guy.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL — A Great Dane named Scooby and his owner, Agustin Zamora, were in the right place at the right time Thursday evening. Around 4:44 p.m. a 14 year old girl had just gotten off of a bus and was making her way home when she noticed a man following her. That man, 28 year old Larry Smith, caught her as she ran up the steps to her home, threw her to the ground, climbed on top of her and began to forcibly remove her clothes. Zamora and Scooby, out for a walk, heard the girls screams for help and rushed to render assistance. Smith attempted to flee the scene but was no match for the pair – they kept him cowering in an alley until police arrived. Smith, who has been arrested nearly 40 times since 2001 for multiple drug offenses among other things, was arrested and charged with attempted criminal sexual assault. He remains behind bars in lieu of $200,000 bail. The girl, unnamed because her age, was not seriously injured. …Continue Reading

LANCASTER, Wis. — Well look at who’s back on D’D again. Poor Dustin Radke just cannot seem to stop putting his dick where it doesn’t belong. First it was back in 2006 when the 24-year-old and two friends tried to dig up 20-year-old Laura Tennessen. The young lady had died in a motorcycle accident and the trio figured their chances of having sex with her had increased greatly. Luckily they were caught before they had a chance to remove her from her grave after having problems breaking through the concrete vault. Radke eventually plead guilty to attempted third-degree sexual assault in February 2009 and was sentenced to a year in prison and two-and-a-half years of extended supervision. Now his dick has gotten him in some trouble once again. It wasn’t a dead girl this time, but it may have been better had it been one. This time it’s for having sex with a living, 14-year-old girl. The girl’s mother contacted police after she found out her daughter was having sex with Radke.…Continue Reading
Hutchinson, KS — Police say an intoxicated 25-year-old Kevin Funderburk sweet-talked his way into the home of a 71-year-old woman over the weekend under the guise that he was homeless and had nowhere else to go.

The woman wasn’t about to let dude have his way with her. The spunky grandma managed to get her hands on a frying pan and proceeded to beat the snot out of the rapey shitstain. “She was fighting for her life,” said detective Sgt.
