Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – An Englewood man was indicted Thursday in connection with a kidnapping and rape case.

The Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office said Friday Shawn Holmes was indicted on kidnapping and rape charges in connection with a 2019 incident.

Holmes was arrested in another state and extradited to Ohio in 2020 in connection with a kidnapping and rape that happened in Butler Township as well as a kidnapping, abduction and gross sexual imposition in Dayton. Prosecutors said 39-year-old Shawn Holmes would offer rides to victims then drive them to a secluded area and rape them.

Holmes was arrested in another state and extradited back to Ohio for questioning about an incident in Butler Township.

Thursday, Holmes was indicted by a Montgomery County Grand Jury on charges including:

  • Five counts of Rape by force
  • Six counts of Kidnapping
  • One count of attempted rape by force

Holmes was indicted on similar charges in October 2020. That investigation revealed three additional victims for which he has now been charged.
