46-year-old Howard Bain of Helendale, California has been arrested and charged with the rape of woman that he met through craigslist.
It’s alleged that Bain placed an ad on craigslist selling some car parts. A woman contacted him then drove out to his house to look at the parts. Bain allegedly said that the parts had been sold. Police say that Bain struck the woman in the face with a flashlight then raped her at gunpoint.
He then held her overnight then drove her home keeping her car threatening her not to go to police.
No word on if there were any actual car parts to begin with or if this was a crime of opportunity but Bain is now added to the list of ‘alleged’ craigslist rapists.
This not only shows what kind of degenerate exists on craigslist but the only way not to become a victim while doing business on craigslist is to not do business on craigslist.
