NORTH PORT, Fla. (WFLA) – Police say a North Port woman was raped in the middle of a neighborhood in broad daylight on Sept. 5. Now they need the community’s help getting the violent criminal off the streets. Police say on Sept. 5 2015 around 2:30 p.m., a 41-year-old woman was walking along Bullard Street when two men in a white sedan drove up. A man asked her if she wanted a good time. Things immediately turned ugly after she said “no.” A man jumped out, shoved her into the backseat and raped her, police said. As the rape was going on, the driver encouraged the assailant, saying, “Get her. Get her.”
"IF THESE TWO GOONS DID IT ONCE YOU CAN BET THEY WILL DO IT AGAIN." The rape lasted about 10 minutes, and then the man pushed the victim out to the middle of the road and left her there crying, police said. “If it can happen on a busy street, in the middle of the day, I think it can happen on any street, anywhere,” Police spokesman Josh Taylor said. Officers have released a sketch of the suspect. Officials say the man is between 20-30 years old, with blue eyes and a thin build. He wore a white tank top and light blue jeans. The man has a bald head. He either had a tattoo or dirt under his right eye. He was wearing DUAL diamond stud earrings.
UPDATE: FLORIDA HAS LET THOUSANDS OF RAPE KITS GO UNTESTED. The reality is as shocking as it is unacceptable: Thousands of rape kits collected by Florida law enforcement agencies in the course of sexual assault investigations remain locked up and untested, some for years. That means thousands of rape cases stand little chance of being solved. That means scores of rapists and sexual predators have little to fear by way of arrest. And that means the state is sending a terrible message to women: When it comes to the violent crime of rape, you're on your own. Every rape kit collected by cops should be tested as soon as possible. Florida must make this a priority. No excuses accepted. Attorney General Pam Bondi is calling for Florida to clear the backlog by the coming year. Bondi also wants the state to increase funding for processing sexual assault evidence at state labs. Rep. Janet Cruz, D-Tampa, filed a bill last week requiring police to adopt new polices that ensure rape kits are tested within 12 months of a crime.
Hopefully North Port cops got DNA evidence from the rape suspect and hopefully he is a felon with his DNA on file in CODIS: "Once DNA is collected, there is a protocol for how the evidence is handled and used in an investigation. The evidence will be provided to law enforcement who may send it to a crime lab. The lab will analyze the material and develop DNA profiles that are unique to a specific person. The lab works with law enforcement officials to compare these profiles to the DNA of potential suspects. If the perpetrator is unknown, they may compare the DNA profile against a large database run by the FBI called CODIS, the Combined DNA Index System. This way, they can identify suspects that the victim doesn’t know or isn’t familiar with."
