Dayton police were called just before 5 a.m. Jan. 9 after residents found a woman partially nude and beaten on a porch in the 1900 block of Tennyson Avenue. The woman told officers she had been raped. She was taken to Miami Valley Hospital for treatment and a sexual assault exam.

During an interview with police, the woman said she was at a West Carrollton sports bar and remembered being in a vehicle with an unknown man, later identified as Claytor, according to an affidavit.

The woman reportedly asked Claytor to take her to her car, but they instead ended up at a park near the 1900 block of Tennyson Avenue in Dayton.

When the woman called a friend, Clayor dragged her out of the vehicle and the two struggled, according to court documents.

“[The woman] thought Claytor left and she got up to run. He returned and tackled her to the ground where he delivered several strikes to her face,” read an affidavit. “[The woman] opted to ‘play dead’ because she thought Claytor was going to kill her.”

He then raped the woman and fled, according to court records. The woman then reportedly ran to a home nearby and 911 was called.

While at Miami Valley Hospital, the woman received eight stitches, according to court documents.
