Elazar WithersDETROIT, MI – Police have accused 28-year-old Elazar Withers of using a dating app to meet and rape multiple men during an early morning crime spree.

Police say that Withers used the cell phone dating app Jack’d, used primarily for gay and lesbian hookups, to rob and rape multiple men early Friday morning.

“It looks like this guy went on this website and was reviewing the website to see who is out there, who wants to go on dates,” said Sgt. Marvin Jones. “And then he set them up to rob them and sexually assault them.”

Withers met his first victim, a 37-year-old man, who he carjacked at gunpoint. The man was able to run from the scene and report the incident to police. Two hours later, Withers used the app to meet a 30-year-old man who he forced into the car before robbing and sexually assaulting him. The victim was forced from the car and was able to flag down a police officer.

Four hours later, Wither met another man using Jack’d and followed the same pattern. He drove the victim to a secluded area where he robbed and raped the man before forcing him out of the vehicle.

Withers was arrested on Monday during a traffic stop and is now facing a list of charges, including criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping and felony firearm possession. Investigators believe there are more victims and are asking anyone with any additional information to to contact police at 313-596-1950 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
