D'ablo McConnell was arrested and later indicted last year on four counts of kidnapping, two counts of rape and single counts of attempted rape, assault and aggravated robbery. His case is still ongoing.

The victim also said that he tried to rape her but she was able to thwart his efforts. She eventually was able to escape the suspect and had to knock on three doors before she was able to borrow a cell phone to contact police. She is just thankful she was able to escape and hopes he is not able to do this to anyone else in the future.
