Tampa man charged with kidnapping, rape

TAMPA — Police arrested a man Saturday morning they say kidnapped a woman he knew and raped her.

Pierre Larkin, 25, of Tampa, went to the woman's apartment near Fowler and Nebraska Avenues Friday morning, Tampa police said. He put a knife to a woman's waist and forced her to climb out of her window. He then put the victim in his car, drove her to his home and raped her, according to the arrest report.

After the attack, he wiped the victim off with a T-shirt and wrapped the knife in it, which police later found, the report said.

The victim identified Larkin as her attacker, and he admitted to the offense after he was arrested Saturday morning. He was charged with armed kidnapping and sexual battery.
