A 23-year-old woman reported to Dayton police early Sept. 30 that Walker picked her up in the 400 block of Cherry Drive in Dayton and offered to give her a ride to her home in Trotwood.

On the way, he pulled over behind a vacant apartment and allegedly demanded oral sex, which the woman refused, according to an affidavit filed Oct. 2 in Dayton Municipal Court.

According to the affidavit, Walker then pulled out a pistol. Following the reported sexual assault, the woman said Walker dropped her off a few blocks away.

Dayton police attempted to stop Walker’s car and chased it until officers called off the pursuit.
