VENTURA : Suspect in Assault Seized at Bus Station

April 24, 1993|BRENDA DAY

Ventura police arrested a 24-year-old man at an Oxnard bus station as he tried to leave town after allegedly assaulting and raping a 14-year-old girl in a Ventura home where the two were living with the child's aunt, authorities said.

Dallas Keith Carter Jr. choked the girl into unconsciousness early Thursday before sexually assaulting her, police said. He was being held in County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail for suspicion of rape.

"It's a really savage case," said Ventura Police Sgt. Roger Nustad.

Carter was arrested several hours after the alleged assault, Nustad said. Knowing he had no car, detectives checked the Greyhound Bus Lines terminal, believing he might flee to relatives in San Bernardino or Sacramento, Nustad said.

He had purchased a ticket to San Bernardino and was preparing to leave when detectives arrived, Nustad said.
