Georgia Man Arrested For Kidnapping, Tasing and Raping Woman for 24 Hours

A man from Georgia was recently arrested for allegedly raping a young woman from California over a 24-hour period.

According to People, Gwinnett County police apprehended Vietnamese American Thuan Q. Dinh after his neighbors summoned the authorities over a possible rape incident on Nov. 24 at Grand Ashbury Lane in Buford, Georgia. 

Responding officers found the alleged victim naked, with her wrists bound together by rope. The neighbor had earlier removed duct tape that was wrapped around her head and neck. The unnamed woman had reportedly escaped from her captor’s home and was able to reach a neighbor’s house.

Based on the victim’s statement to the police, Dinh allegedly drove to California and took her back to his home in Buford, Georgia. Once they reached the man’s home, she was reportedly tied up, raped and tased by the suspect.

She told investigators that she was repeatedly beaten and raped over a 24-hour period. She only found the opportunity to escape and find help after Dinh finally headed out. The woman was immediately taken to a local hospital and treated, police said. The victim is now with her family who is helping her try to recover from the extremely traumatic incident.

After spending days on the run, using multiple names to hide his identity, Dinh was finally arrested on Wednesday at a traffic stop on Buford Highway, Gwinnett Daily Post reported. He is now facing charges of rape, false imprisonment, robbery and aggravated assault. A search of Dinh’s house reportedly yielded a “large amount of suspected marijuana.”

Dinh, who is now behind bars without bond, does not have a lawyer as of press time and has yet to enter pleas to the charges against him.
