DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The man who is accused of kidnapping and raping a child at a Dayton bus stop used a knife, according to investigators.
2 NEWS has obtained court documents that claim 29-year-old Randy Stanaford came up behind the 11-year-old girl at her bus stop and “grabbed her at knifepoint.” The documents goes on to say Stanaford dragged the girl to a side yard on Edgar Avenue in Dayton and sexually assaulted her.
The Statement of Fact Affidavit says the young girl immediately told her guardian what happened and was taken to Dayton Children’s Hospital. The affidavit also says a rape kit was completed and DNA was recovered. Investigators entered that DNA into the CODIS, a database of DNA profiles, and a match was found. That DNA match identified Randy Stanaford as the suspect.
2 NEWS Investigates’ Natalie Tendall reported Monday that Stanaford was convicted of attempted kidnapping and public indecency involving a minor about eight years ago, and served six years in prison. Stanaford was released in August 2015.
Stanaford now faces charges of kidnapping and rape. He is being held in the Montgomery County jail on a $500,000 bond. A preliminary hearing for this case is scheduled Friday.
