Joel Cammon, 44, CHARGED IN CONNECTION WITH A CHAINED WOMAN IN AN ABANDON HOUSE NEAR 119th EGGLESTON
BREAKING NEWS - Prosecutors charged a man today with chaining woman to the wall of an abandoned home for 3 days last month, sexually assaulting her twice.
Antone D-Ice Dobbine called police and went on Facebook Live after hearing her scream for help.
Joel Cammon, 44, is charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated criminal sexual assault. Judge Barbara Dawkins ordered him held without bail at the request of prosecutors.
“This is a heinous act of, essentially, torture,” Assistant State’s Attorney Danny Hanichak told Dawkins during Cammon’s bail hearing.
Hanichak said Cammon, who worked as a “quasi-security guard” at a business near the abandoned home, knew the 36-year-old homeless woman because he had previously paid her for sex.
They crossed paths on May 18, and the woman agreed to meet Cammon in the home’s basement for paid sex, Hanichak said.
But the two began arguing in the basement, with Cammon allegedly saying he was “sick of paying you b*tches for sex just for you to rush me.”
He then used his handcuffs to restrain the woman and dragged her to the attic, where he chained her right leg to the wall, Hanichak alleged. There, Cammon sexually assaulted the woman, then left the home, leaving her restrained and alone overnight, Hanichak said.
