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
WEST PHILADELPHIA, PA - Three 4th grade students at Bryant Elementary School have been arrested and charged with sexually assaulting an 8-year-old classmate.
The victim’s mother says her son was attacked by the three boys in a school bathroom sometime at the end of October. Her son had already had issues with the accused, and had reported their bullying to the school a few weeks before this latest incident.
The 8-year-old is an advanced student and in the same classes as his 10-year-old attackers. On the day of the assault he had asked for permission to use the restroom and was followed by the three other boys who allegedly sexually assaulted him once inside the bathroom.
The school investigated the assault but said that aside from school policy being broken in regards to the students being allowed to go to the bathroom together, they could only find evidence of bullying and suspended the three boys for five days.
But after the Philadelphia Police Special Victims Unit got involved and interviewed everyone involved, the three attackers were charged as juveniles with attempted rape, unlawful restraint and indecent sexual assault.…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
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
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. A job well done for Scooby who did not even have to bite Smith to keep him put.…Continue Reading

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.

As the conversation continued, the woman revealed her room number to the seemingly harmless flier hander-outer. Little did she know she’d soon be seeing him again real soon – under extremely unpleasant circumstances. At about 3:00 the next morning, the woman heard a noise coming from the area of her second-floor balcony. She placed the chain on the door leading to the balcony and opened it up a crack and guess who she saw? A man in big white sunglasses, the flier hander-outer, John Garcia. He had obviously spent a little time planning the attack, he reportedly brought a ladder with him to gain access to her balcony. Police say Garcia busted through the door, threw the woman on the bed and commenced to ripping off her clothes, threatening her with a knife the whole time.…Continue Reading
Kansas City, MO – Police say Cortez Moorman, 25, was hauled into the cop-shop Sunday night to answer to an attempted rape allegation. The victim told police that Moorman offered her a ride from point A to point B – thinking Moorman was a friend of a family member, she accepted and hopped into his car. A short time later, Moorman reportedly tried to force himself on her. The woman fought him off and was able to exit the vehicle, only to be dragged right back in. After another struggle, the woman managed to flee the vehicle once again and flag down an officer. At the station, Moorman denied the allegations and further stated that he wasn’t even inside the vehicle in question. It was when he was left alone in the interview room that things took a bizarre turn. He maneuvered his chair to block the door and proceeded to whip out his one-eyed willy. Oblivious to his surroundings, he started spankin’ away. When the officers returned to the interview room, they kindly asked him to put his stiffy away.…Continue Reading
MASCOTTE, Fla. – Police have arrested 55-year-old Michael Minchey who they say went into the home of a pregnant woman and tried to rape her. She told police that she knew Minchey but never allowed him in the house. When he walked in she asked him to leave, but he choked her, pushed her to the ground and tried to take off her clothes. The woman said that after kneeing him in the groin, he became angry and punched her in the stomach. That’s when her son, reported to be around 3-years-old, entered the room and began hitting Minchey with a broomstick. Minchey pushed the boy into an entertainment center and left the residence. When police arrived at Minchey’s home, he called the woman a lying “crack whore” before they even told him why they were there. He was arrested and charged with attempted rape, child abuse, burglary and aggravated battery. If the allegations are true, and the story is accurate, this kid has it MADE. I would’ve held something like this over my mom’s head all the time.…Continue Reading
BOULDER, Colo. - A woman was walking along a hiking trail while talking to her sister on her cell phone. Up ahead she saw a scrawny man caressing a rock while holding a knife. As they passed each other, the man asked if “he could be with her” to which she replied “no”. The man then began following her as she walked, mimicking her phone conversation with her sister. After a short while the man became tired of this and grabbed the woman from behind who had just enough time to tell her sister she was being attacked before dropping her phone. He then tried to pull off her shorts and was met with several punches to the face from the woman. Initially dazed, the man returned the favor, striking the woman in the face and head. She was still able to break free from her attacker and ran for about 5-minutes before using the phone at a nearby home. Acting on a tip, police located Michael Gonzales-Davis, 25, and placed him into custody.…Continue Reading

According to police reports, a woman told deputies that Travis tried to rape her. She said that after arriving at the residence early Saturday morning, Travis asked her if she wanted to “hook-up.” Well, she didn’t, and when she refused, Travis allegedly pushed her onto a couch, sat on her, and attempted to unbuckle her pants. She screamed and managed to push him off. At that point, another male in the house, 30-year-old Bernard Cushman, entered the room and told Travis to leave. Travis refused and the beat down commenced.

Athens-Clarke, GA – The attacker stalked his 17 year old victim along the East Athens street; it was 6:30pm, and the teen realized what was happening and began to walk faster. This is when the man, described as a “fat Hispanic man who wore a gray hoodie and sweatpants”, grabbed the teen and dragged them into the woods nearby. They fought in the brush, with the attacker “kicking him repeatedly, ripping at the young person’s clothing, pulling off shirts and flinging shoes into the shrubs – but when the attacker got to the victim’s pants, he realized he’d made a mistake, and the teen he thought would be his female rape victim was actually a man as well! The victim had been dressed as a woman. The attacker ran when the victim’s cell phone rang, and fortunately witnesses had already called 911. Police found the young boy crying in the rain, with no sign of the attacker. “It doesn’t matter that (the victim) wasn’t a female,” Athens-Clarke Captain of Police said.…Continue Reading
