Kidnap & Rape

School worker accused of raping woman

A 64-year-old paraprofessional at Biscayne Gardens Elementary School has been charged with threatening, kidnapping and raping a woman, Miami-Dade police said.

Richard Jerome Campbell, a 41-year school employee who works with handicapped children, attacked the woman ''while she was incapacitated,'' according to a police report. Police did not explain how the woman was ``incapacitated.''

Arrested Sunday, Campbell was charged with sexual battery of an incapacitated person, armed kidnapping and tampering with a victim.

He was denied bond Monday.

The arrest was his first in Miami-Dade County.

According to an arrest report, the alleged incident happened late May 30 through early the next day.

As he attacked the woman, the report said, Campbell ``prevented [her] from calling police by knocking the phone out of her hand.''

Then he drove her to his home at 16095 NW 37th Ct. and ''placed a gun to her head and threatened to kill her if she called police,'' sexual battery Detective Dalyn Nye wrote in her report.

Police say Campbell confessed.
