Rape victim’s name linked to stalking
DELMONT — Police say an Indiana man set up a Facebook account using the name of a woman he had raped to try to persuade a Pennsylvania woman to come back to him.
Authorities say 23-year-old Travis Allen Davis, of New Castle, Ind., was arrested last week as he slept in a car outside his ex-girlfriend’s home in the southwestern Pennsylvania town of Delmont. They say he had a gun and box cutter.
Police say Davis used the name of a woman he raped in Ohio last year to contact the Pennsylvania woman.
A Pennsylvania judge on Tuesday ordered Davis to undergo a mental health evaluation. He is charged with violating a protection-from-abuse order and stalking.
Davis‘ attorney said he intends to prove his client’s innocence.
Davis pleaded guilty in the Ohio rape case and is awaiting sentencing.
