Police Identify Suspect Who Allegedly Raped, Robbed Man He Met on Grindr


Yesterday I told you about a Canadian man visiting Philly who was raped and beaten by a fellow he met on Grindr. Now police have a suspect, and they’re asking for the public’s help in tracking him down. From NBC 10:

Philadelphia Police have identified the man they say raped, beat and robbed a tourist after the two men met on the popular gay dating and hookup app Grindr.

Detectives are asking for the public’s help in finding 26-year-old Douglas Spady, a.k.a. Douglas Casey, of the 5200 block of Cottage Street, in relation to the Wednesday afternoon attack.

According to NBC 10, Spady “stands 5 foot 11-inches tall with wavy hair and star tattoos on the back of his right hand, police say. He was wearing a dark colored jacket, dark blue jeans and tan boots.” If you have any leads, call the tipline at 215-686-TIPS.
