Fake ride-share rape suspect turns himself in

A 34-year-old man from Tukwila is now in custody for posing as a ride-share driver in Ballard and sexually assaulting a woman in December.

According to KIRO 7, the man turned himself in after police released photos of the man in an attempt to locate him. A family member recognized him, which prompted the man to turn himself in.

The incident happened on Dec. 16, 2018, when the woman was at a bar on the 5100 block of Ballard Ave. A friend reportedly ordered the ride for her, and she got into a car with the suspect, who claimed to be her driver. He then drove to White Center, where he sexually assaulted her.

She reported the crime shortly after, but detectives had exhausted their leads prior to releasing surveillance footage of the man, which was taken from the woman’s home in White Center after the rape occurred.

The man is now being held in King County Jail.

Ya know, I would think you libs being hammered by reality FOR BEING WRONG OR LYING ABOUT EVERYTHING for the last 2 yrs would give you a little humility.

Over 3 months to release the photo of the suspect and only day or two to apprehend after releasing? Seems to me his family would have recognize him over 3 months ago. Shaking my head.
Too bad the victim wasn’t legally armed and killed the MF’er.

Thank goodness he has some honest family members. This loser has been loose for 3+ months.

Yeah uh, they are likely trying to avoid deportation. Real reason vs right reason.
Think harder, this is a “Sanctuary City” after all.

lil bucky logic… “uh. Not much info on the scumbag” but “Yeah uh, they are likely trying to avoid deportation. Real reason vs right reason”

Your ignorance and bigotry should be embarrassing to you, but for some reason you wear it like a badge of honor. Unreal!

That qualifies as ‘south of the border’ doesn’t it?

I’m so glad they caught this a-hole! And props to the family for doing the right thing.

For anyone that has a daughter this is a very scary situation. This guy deserves to be put away for a long time. He need to understand that it is not alright to abuse women or anyone! People should be able to live in a society where they can enjoy life and have a good time and not be worried about some scumbag violating them if they are inebriated.
I have a daughter and if this happened to her I would probably take this guy out! Or at least cut his balls off. No kidding.

Geeky Swedes – IF you are monitoring this forum then you should BAN this racist, misogynist freak posting here as Uncle Buck! He is not an asset in this MyBallard site.

While I disagree with most things UB has to say, I think the wholesale proferring of ‘ban him he’s …!’ is a slippery slope. Today, you ban UB for his insensitive comments. Tomorrow, maybe someone else pushes it a bit further. I’m against censorship because whether it’s for the right reasons or the wrong reasons, it always ends up in a bad place.

How about banning him for constantly posting comments that are irrelevant or not conducive to intelligent discourse about MyBallard articles?

Like yesterday on an article about the Market Street Singers, he started complaining about St. Lukes because the article mentioned they were having a rummage sale there.

It’s non-stop garbage like that for which he should be banned. The only other commenter that even gets close is Paint King and he’s tame compared to Uncle Buck.

MyBallard is not beholden to give a voice to anyone, myself included.

Calm down. Spend 30 minutes in your safe space, smoke a bowl, and relax listening to Rachel Maddow talking non-stop about collusion.

Oh yeah, forgot about this guy ^^^^^

I don’t think elenchos2 has ever contributed one single relevant comment that I can recall. At least a UB has a comment now and then that’s about the article at hand.

It’s not censorship. It’s consequences for being rude. That’s how society works. In real life. You act rude, you are no longer welcome. Seriously people look up censorship before you cry about it.

Do you consider your own woketivism an “asset” to the site?

Every time you or lil bucky post, we are sadly reminded how badly our education system has failed us.

I hope there are no rape kits sitting on a shelf somewhere with this individuals DNA in it. Us taxpayers will probably be on the hook for these awful sex crimes.
