Lithia man wanted on kidnapping charge and two counts of rape

TAMPA — Warrants were issued Friday for a 19-year-old who deputies say broke into his ex-girlfriend's home, kidnapped her, raped her twice and then forced her to go to lunch with him Sunday.

Donovan Nicholas Hall of 1604 Thompson Road in Lithia has warrants for armed sexual battery, armed burglary and armed kidnapping.

Deputies say Hall cut a hole in the screen of an open window just before 2 p.m. and climbed into his 20-year-old ex-girlfriend's residence.

He threatened her with a baseball bat and forced her out of the house to a shed where he raped her, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Hall then forced the woman to a vacant home where he raped her again before making her walk to a store where he bought them both something to drink, the Sheriff's Office reported.

Next, he took her into a local restaurant to get food, but the woman borrowed someone's cell phone and called her father, deputies said.

When her father arrived, Hall ran from the restaurant and deputies have not been able to find him.

Hall has been arrested at least twice before in Hillsborough County and charged with burglary, grand theft and marijuana possession.

Anyone with information on the case was asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 873-8477.
