Man Goes On All Night Raping Spree, Attacks Three Different Guys In Less Than Eight Hours

Screen Shot 2016-03-24 at 12.08.14 PM

A Detroit man is accused of raping and robbing two men and carjacking a third all in a single night.

28-year-old Elazar Withers allegedly met all three of his victims on the dating app Jack’d.

Withers’ first victim was a 37-year-old man. The victim told police he was waiting for Withers in his car at 1:40 a.m. last Friday when he says the suspect approached, pointed a gun to his head and ordered him out of the vehicle. The victim obeyed and, after Withers had made off with his car, ran to a nearby gas station to call police.

Withers’ second alleged victim was a 30-year-old man who he met a few hours later, at around 3:45 a.m. The victim told police he was waiting for Withers on the sidewalk when the suspect pulled up, pointed a gun to his head and demanded he get in the car.

“The suspect drove to a secluded area at Reno and Fairmount, where the suspect sexually assaulted and robbed the victim,” Detroit police said in a statement. “The suspect then fled from the location.”

A third victim was attacked a few hours after that, at around 7:20 a.m. He told police that, like the previous victims, he had met Withers on Jack’d. When the suspect showed up at his place, the victim voluntarily got into his vehicle. He was then driven to a secluded area, where he was sexually assaulted and robbed at gunpoint, police said. Withers allegedly stole the man’s iPhone, I.D. and cash.

Police arrested Withers three days later. He is charged with kidnapping, first-degree criminal sexual assault, two counts of second-degree criminal sexual, two counts of armed robbery and felony firearm.

    More and more male-on-male rape reported these days…

  • Kangol

    Maybe he thought he was in a rape-fantasy video, but he will find himself in a prison soon enough, and he probably won’t be the one committing the rapes in that real-life horror show.

    Why has Queerty used a picture/imagine that does not look anything like the accused rapist?

  • Victor Slabb

    Are rape fantasies common?

  • Captain proton

    Maybe he played too much GTA?

    @Alistair Wiseman: probably licensing issues.

  • trell

    This guy has some seriously repressed issues! This story is like the Yusuf Mack tale, only more condensed & more horrific.

    I hope the victims have the courage to see this through, & can recover from their trauma.

  • JerseyMike

    How f’ing stupid can you get.

  • Sluggo2007

    Hooking up in the middle of the night in Detroit? You get what you ask for. Haven’t you ever heard of “rubbing one out?”

  • robho3

    Well thats one way to hook up

  • JerseyMike

    @truckproductions: LMAO!!! His face book profile says self employed. I guess robbing people is considered a career now..

  • Kangol

    @Stache: I know! There’s no way this dude is 28, or that the Facebook profile and the mugshot are the same person. Maybe people got Catfished before they got…eeled? Whaled? Orca’d?
