In a shock story out of Ohio, a 23 year old woman has been charged with rape and robbery of her male taxi driver. Not working alone, she had a 20 year old male friend with her who allegedly held a knife to the victim’s throat. Brittany S. Carter was the alleged perpetrator according to the News-Messenger.
Carter had no prior convictions but police were familiar with her being involved with drugs in the past. Cory Jackson, her accomplice is still missing and already had a warrant for other crimes. There was apparently another male accomplice, who has not been identified and is also still at large. The incident is said to have occurred on the 28th January 2017 in the early hours. She was not arrested until March and she now faces charges of first degree rape and aggravated robbery. It is alleged she performed a sex act on the 29 year old victim while Jackson held a knife to his throat.
When asked to comment Findlay Lt. Robert Ring spoke to The News-Messenger and said:
We don’t know why she did it. Maybe it was a distraction because they took money from him.
It is a bizarre case in that it is quite rare for a woman to be charged with raping an adult man. There have been many statutory rape cases involving older women and under age boys. This is unusual, but not unheard of. The Atlantic published an article last year discussing sexual assault statistics. It seems female assaults on males are more common than we all might think. The story said:
The authors also note a 2011 survey of 302 male college students. It found that 51.2 percent reported “at least one sexual victimization experience since age 16.”
About half of the victims reported a female perpetrator.
Of course these are based on surveys rather than police reports. Unfortunately official reporting of all sexual assaults is very low for men and women and the real statistics would be shocking.
If the motive for Carter and Jackson was money, they got away with a mere $32.
