31-year-old truck driver Kyle Townsend is accused of allegedly raping a 14-year-old boy that he met through craigslist. The Idaho Falls boy had placed an ad on craigslist, looking for a ride to Nevada. Police say that Townsend responded to the ad and picked up the boy at a local mall. Then this is reportedly what happened next…
Court records show Townsend forced the boy to perform sexual acts and then raped him. The teen reported to police he vomited after the assault and Townsend kicked him out of the truck saying the boy was “too easy.”
Townsend is also accused of trying to pick up another boy and sending him nude photos.
This is what a lot of predators do. The first victim in the story, more than likely, was having problems at home. Sexual predators will take advantage of situations like this in order to gain the trust of their victim. They’ll look for kids reaching out for help but instead of lending a helping hand they strike with a closed fist.
