It’s been more than a decade since a woman was raped at the West County Mall in central Kentucky.
The victim, who asked to remain anonymous, said she was walking to a nearby store when she felt a hand on her thigh.
She remembers feeling dizzy and having a sudden memory of being raped by a man in a dark alleyway.
She said she felt she could not remember the exact location where she was assaulted, but said the alleyway looked like it would be near the mall entrance.
It took the victim and a friend a few days to track down a man they believe is the suspect in the case.
He was captured after he stole a car from a nearby home.
A week after that, police arrested the man, who admitted to the rape and confessed to being the man who raped the woman.
The suspect was charged with rape and kidnapping.
Police said they believe the suspect may have been in the mall for months before he was caught.
Police have arrested five men in connection with the case, and are looking for another man who has not yet been identified.
In a statement to ABC News, West County Sheriff’s Office said, “It is with deep regret that we announce that the suspect, James R. D. Riddle, has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of rape and other crimes, in addition to being charged with a series of other crimes.”
Riddle is scheduled to appear in court again on Aug. 25.
