Police in Boynton Beach, Florida, have recently arrested 38-year-old Julian Ryals for allegedly brutally assaulting a woman he met on the casual encounters section of craigslist. The victim states that the pair had consensual sex and when it was over Ryals refused to let her leave, tied her up, choked her and hit her and tied her up again after she broke free of her bonds. The victim eventually escaped and was able to call 911. Ryals is then accused of stealing the woman’s car. He also has a lengthy rap sheet that include charges of domestic violence and battery.
People, people, people. How many times do I have to say it? Craigslist is not the place to meet people for anything let alone casual sex. I’m not victim blaming here because ultimately the blame lies with the perpetrator however, male or female, you need to be smarter than this. The majority of men on craigslist looking for casual sex are dregs and a lot of them are looking for nothing more than victims. Think, don’t let yourself become a victim.
