Red shoes, Giants logo help deputies catch Kingston suspect

Red shoes and the San Francisco Giants logo helped Kitsap County sheriff’s deputies catch a 38-year-old Kingston man charged in Superior Court Nov. 6 with second-degree rape and first-degree burglary. A nude man and a large kitchen knife also were part of the crime.

Bail for the suspect was set at $150,000. He faces life in prison and $50,000 in fines.

Sheriff’s reports say on Oct. 14 at 5:10 a.m., deputies responded to a burglary on Jefferson Point Road at an Air B&B in Kingston. The reporting party called 911 to report a naked man in her friend’s bed. The suspect left. Law enforcement collected hair, clothing, bedding, bottles and more. Video shows the man entering the residence at 3:51 a.m. The suspect was described as 35-40, short/slim, bald and wearing red Vans shoes.

A deputy went into the bedroom where the victim was buried in the blankets and crying. The reporting party said they had gone out in Kingston for some karaoke and drinks, made some friends and brought them back to the B&B for hot tub fun. When the others left, the two women renting the B&B went to bed.

Later, one of the women woke up to find a nude man in her bed. She told her friend, who grabbed a large kitchen knife as the man left.

Looking at video from a nearby store and at the B&B, law enforcement saw two men in a white truck with a Giants logo on it buy a case of Rainier. A while later, two men went to the B&B, one wearing a Giants baseball cap. Later, video at the house shows various interactions between people, some fully or partially naked.

The victim went to St. Michael Medical Center in Silverdale to see a sexual assault nurse examiner.

When caught, the suspect said he let himself into the B&B and laid down next to the victim with underwear on but didn’t do anything.

Burglary charge

A 24-year-old Port Orchard man was in Superior Court Nov. 6 on a second-degree burglary charge.

Bail was set at $75,000. He faces 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.

Bremerton police say on Nov. 5 at 8:38 a.m. a carjacking robbery took place in the 3700 block of Sundown Drive. Police have been to that address numerous times over the past few years due to drug activity, stolen vehicle recoveries and warrant arrests.

The victim had a bloodied lip and face. A friend had loaned him a car. The suspect got into the car and punched the victim repeatedly then drove off. The suspect was arrested hours later when he returned to the scene of the crime to exchange property with others involved. He said he “jumped” the victim because he heard that man was going to assault a woman friend.
