The last time we checked in with Duane Starkenburg, he'd just come out of jail and had decided to explain in candid detail to reporters why he enjoys watching women run at the park (hint: it involves how they "jiggle and bounce").
At the time, Starkenburg had been charged with indecent liberties for supposedly running up behind three different jogging women and leaping face first into their buttocks.
Now it would appear that Starkenburg's alleged crimes have gone from the creepy/ridiculous to the just plain sick.
West Seattle Blog reports that the 46-year-old has been in jail since Friday, held on suspicion of child rape--a case that apparently goes back some 10 years and involves a 9-year-old.
Without going into details that could give clues to the victim's identity, we will say that probable-cause documents indicate this incident is alleged to have happened about 10 years ago, when the victim was 9 years old (the statute of limitations, we're told, wouldn't run out for another 8 years), and that Starkenburg was known to the victim's family. Starkenburg's bail is set at $100,000, after a judge found probable cause to keep him in jail pending a charging decision; KCPAO spokesperson Dan Donohoe says they will decide by tomorrow whether to file charges.
Here's Starkenburg explaining his mishaps with joggers.
We'll keep an eye on this story and post an update when/if he's charged.
