Let's be clear about this: The Rapture is not about rape.
Ray Allen Martin, a 28-year-old Daytona Beach man, is accused of attacking a woman who was pushing her 4-year-old son in a stroller. Martin allegedly dragged her toward a breezeway of a building and pulled her pants and underwear down,
reports the Orlando Sentinel.
A man walking in the area came to her rescue and Martin briefly fled before being caught.
Martin later told officers he was "so afraid of the rapture" and that he needed to tell the victim he was sorry.
"I just needed her to feel my fear too," he reportedly said.
