Local pizza delivery drivers kidnapped, one raped

DAYTON — Two female pizza delivery drivers were kidnapped, one of whom was raped, in two separate incidents and now a Dayton man is facing multiple felonies for the alleged crimes.

D'ablo McConnell, 19, was indicted by a grand jury Monday on four counts of kidnapping, two counts of rape and single counts of attempted rape, assault and aggravated robbery.

McConnell had a not guilty plea entered on Thursday and his bond was set at $250,000.

McConnell allegedly kidnapped a victim at gunpoint in the first block of Sandhurst Drive in Dayton on Oct. 17 around 11:45 p.m., records showed.

The teen then was accused of forcing the victim to drive him in her car to the area of Taywood Drive, where he allegedly raped her, courts records showed.

Englewood police said they are investigating a similar case that was reported the next night around 10:45 p.m.

In the Englewood case, McConnell was accused of holding a “realistic gun” to a different female victim’s head on West Wenger Road and allegedly forced her to drive him in her car to the area of Hillcrest Avenue. McConnell was then accused of robbing her and attempted to rape her, a criminal complaint read.

The victim in the Englewood case was able to escape before being raped and attempted to flee, however McConnell allegedly choked the victim until she passed out, court records read.

McConnell is expected to be arraigned on the indicted charges Thursday and remains in the Montgomery County Jail.
