Police Warn Public To Avoid Rapist Who Vowed To ‘Rape First Woman He Sees’

Police have warned members of the public to avoid a convicted child rapist after he vowed to ‘rape the first woman he sees’.

John Mark West, 38, was convicted in 1996 for raping a 4-year-old girl in his home, Hempstead County sheriff’s office confirmed on social media earlier this week.

West was arrested again last month on suspicion of disorderly conduct, and was transferred to hospital shortly afterwards for an evaluation.

As the sex offender was scheduled to be released from hospital on Monday (May 6), police took to Facebook to warn members of the public of threats West had made.

The post read:

West apparently suffers from mental illness and is stable while on medication. He is telling the hospital personnel that he will not stay on his medication, when he walks out of the hospital.

He is also telling the hospital staff that he will rape the first woman he sees so he can come back to ADC. West reported that he has previously had command hallucinations that told him to rape a woman.

This notice is provided to the Citizens of Hempstead County out of a concern for the safety for the citizens. Please use caution if this person approaches you, Call 911 immediately and report whereabouts. Please do not approach.
