A man named Ramon Hernandez was charged Monday with the kidnapping, rape and robbery of a woman who told Tacoma Police she knew him from Bible study class.
Tacoma officers met with the 44-year-old victim on Sept. 21 at a hospital where she was having a rape examination, court records say. According to the prosecutor’s affidavit:
The woman told police she had brought him dinner after a lunch date fell through. Once inside, he held a knife to her throat, tied her up, gagged her with a sock and raped her.
The defendant said he would kill her again if she did not cooperate and [she]. told him he would have to kill her. She began telling him that Jesus loves him and she began praying out loud. The defendant gagged her again and covered her head.
She told police he then took her car keys and left. She was able to free herself and fled to her church.
Police searched Hernandez’s home and “located the spaghetti dinner [she] delivered, and they located a white sock and butter knife in the bedroom. Officers also later recovered [her] car and located a steak knife on the front seat console. [She] reported she did not have a knife in her vehicle.”
Hernandez was being held Monday evening in lieu of $200,000 bond.
