EARLIER REPORT:

A Dayton man accused of kidnapping a girl at knife-point and sexually assaulting her while she was waiting for the school bus was in court this afternoon for the start of his trial.

Randy Stanaford, 39, is charged with rape of a child less than 13 years old and kidnapping.

Stanaford, a registered sex-offender, was accused of kidnapping the 11-year-old girl while she was waiting for the school bus near the intersection of Edgar and Heaton avenues in Dayton last September, according to prosecutors.

"This defendant, a homeless registered sex offender, kidnapped and raped an 11 year old girl, who was a complete stranger,” said Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr.

The 39-year-old was convicted in Butler County in 2008 for attempted kidnapping and public indecency and was released from prison in August 2015.

A jury was selected for Stanaford’s trial Monday morning and opening statements began shortly after 3 p.m.

If convicted as charged, Stanaford would face a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole.

Published: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 @ 9:20 AM
Updated: Wednesday, June 20, 2018 @ 3:46 AM

A driver is reportedly trapped inside their vehicle following a crash in downtown Dayton on West Fifth Street Tuesday morning.

The victim killed in a wrong-way crash Tuesday morning in downtown Dayton was identified as 87-year-old Opal Clouse of Dayton by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.

Officers were dispatched to a report of a crash with one person trapped near the intersection of West Fifth Street and South Perry Street around 9 a.m. 

According to a crash report, a red Toyota Rav driven by Adrian F. Traylor, 67, was traveling westbound in the wrong direction on West Fifth Street.  At the intersection of W. Fifth Street and S. Perry Street, Mr. Traylor crashed into Mrs. Clouse’s silver Honda, sending her vehicle into a DP&L pole.

Ms. Clouse was transported to Miami Valley Hospital where she was pronounced dead, the report states. 

Mr. Traylor was not injured in the crash. 

Police said excessive speed doesn’t appear to be a factor, and it is not uncommon to see drivers travel the wrong way on Dayton’s one-way streets.

“With going the wrong way, there is no traffic device to tell you that you should be slowing down for a red light,” Lt. James Mullins said.  “I’m sure the person was driving normal speeds and had the collision.” 

The preliminary report does not show Mr. Traylor to be charged or cited in the crash, however, the crash remains under investigation.
