Chicago Man Charged With Raping Woman He Met on Facebook


A far South Side barber named Wayne Smith raped a woman he met on Facebook, according to prosecutors.

Smith, 25, was ordered held on $200,000 bond Tuesday.

He attacked the victim in the apartment he shares with his mother just hours after the pair initially met in person, Asst. Cook County State’s Atty. Morgan Creppel said in court.

Smith’s mother was at the residence during the sexual assault in Smith’s locked bedroom early Monday, Creppel said.

Before the rape, Smith and the victim spent the day together after their first face-to-face meeting, Creppel said. Smith and the woman then went bowling with his friends before coming back to his apartment to watch TV in his bedroom, where the rape allegedly took place.

While they were watching TV, Smith attempted to kiss her and she told him to “stop,” Creppel said. That’s when he started choking her and slapped the 24-year-old woman in the face, Creppel said. He told her he had a gun and said he would kill her if she did not have sex with him, according to a police report.

The woman eventually ran out of the room naked and went into Smith’s mother’s bedroom to tell her what had happened, Creppel said. Smith followed her out of the room but the woman was able to take her clothes and escape, Creppel said.

The victim called police and waited near Smith’s building in the 12000 block of South Wallace until officers arrived. The woman identified Smith at his home and he was arrested.
