William Costello, accused serial rapist, linked to two more crimes but bond lowered
|West 32nd and North Federal, near the bus stop where the third victim met the suspect.|
The woman said she'd prefer the latter, but she wasn't given the choice. The affidavit notes that the man grabbed her by the back of the head and tried to force her to orally service him. She responded by fighting him off as best she could, but he overpowered her, held her down, licked her breasts, neck and lips and digitally penetrated her anus. At that point, she told him she'd provide him with oral sex, but when he climbed back into the driver's seat, she jumped out of the car, ran to a nearby home with a porch light and began asking for those inside to call the police. At that point, the suspect drove away.
Again, a rape kit was used, and again, male DNA was found on a swab that matched with Costello's.
The result of these discoveries? Costello has been charged with two counts of second-degree kidnapping, two counts of sexual assault on a child, three counts of sexual assault and two counts of impersonating a peace officer. He's being held on $200,000 and is scheduled to make his first court appearance at 9:30 a.m. today.
