PHILADELPHIA — Police in Philadelphia have identified the man they say sexually assaulted, beat and robbed a Canadian tourist after the two men met on Grindr.
Detectives believe 26-year-old Douglas Spady, a.k.a. Douglas Casey, pulled a gun on a 34-year-old man in his hotel room and raped him, reports WCAU-TV.
Following the assault, the victim, who was visiting Philadelphia for an education conference, said he was forced to buy four $500 Visa gift cards, and was then walked to five nearby ATMs and told to withdraw $200 from each cash machine. In total, he was robbed of $3000.
“The whole thing was just a giant blur. I was scared and I kept thinking if i just do what he says, then he’ll just go away,” the man said.
Anyone with information on Spady’s whereabouts should call Philadelphia police at (215) 686-TIPS.
