Darnell Clemons: Charged in Kidnapping Woman from St. Louis Bus, Raping Her

Darnell Clemons had warrant for prior rape in Maplewood.
A St. Louis man wanted for a prior rape charge is in custody today after allegedly forcing a woman off a St. Louis bus last week and sexually assaulting her.

The incident occurred November 11 and lasted into the next day, according to probable cause statement made public yesterday. The document states that Darnell Anthony Clemons, 23, boarded a bus last Tuesday and began conversation with a female passenger.

When the woman said she was getting off the bus, Clemons allegedly refused to allow her to leave. He then allegedly threatened to shoot her if she tried to get off the vehicle. According authorities, other passengers on the bus observed Clemons in possession of what appeared to be a handgun. When they tried to intervene, Clemons allegedly threatened them as well.

As the bus approached the 5300 block of Kingshighway in St. Louis, Clemons allegedly forced the woman off at gunpoint. He then took her phone and removed the battery, according to authorities, and led her to his residence in the 5300 block of Kingshighway. There he allegedly ordered her to remove her clothing and raped her. After he was finished, authorities say he again threatened the victim, telling her not to report what happened to police.

Police say video surveillance on the bus shows Clemons sitting next to the victim and holding what appears to be a gun. According to the probable cause statement, Clemons was also wanted for a charge of forcible rape in Maplewood and domestic assault in St. Louis. He's currently on parole for a burglary charge and is now being held on a $250,000 bond.

Soooooo.... there was not one single person on that bus that felt like standing up and doing the right thing, or trying to intervene even though they were being threatened?  I mean, not even calling the cops or anything?  What about the bus driver?  No one was willing to step in and act on behalf of this woman?  Is there more to this story?

Listen up all you racists;1) Darnell is a good man2) Darnell is a Fine Ebony Prince of Africa3) Darnell takes care of "he keedz"4) Darnell is someone's father, brother, son5) Darnell just made a mistake. It's not kije any of you have not ever made a mistake too.6) Just because he's in custody and has been identified by witnesses and video as the culprit does not mean anyone should rush to judgement. This is probably yet another lynching on an innocent "Fine Ebony Prince of Africa"7) The woman is probably just jealous or possibly smitten with Darnell and is lying about the entire thing.

Understand the rules?

Darnell has sad eyes...... sad from years of being victimized by racism. Hopefully he will be able to put his life back together after this tragic event. We can't bring the old man back but there's still time to help Darnell get his life back on track.

Yeah I bet you racists are real happy. Another of our young African American men destroyed. Darnell has been in the white man's chains all his life. The white mans chains of racism. Is it any wonder that a young man like this lashes out in anger?

Now I honestly believe this to be Sarcastic... I am not at all rasist ( I know I know thats what everyone says) but whatever believe it or not thats not the point in all this but on all these posts about ppl like this there is always someone that says one (or more) of these things Pretty much the exact same way.... Now I could be wrong on how im taking this message... But I kinda find this amusing... at least someone has the balls to say something that is on thier mind and not be afraid of being called rasist or wanting to be black or jealous.. However I will feel like a total ass if I find out that this person is 100% serious with this post LOL however you all know my stance so have a good night!

If he is such a prince of Africa, maybe he should move back to Africa and you can deal with him. (make sure to relocate also).

Do you want to be black? did a black guy kick your ass, screw your wife, impregnate your daughter and you can't get over it, because in your eyes when the creator made the African race he made a mistake right?

Though I can't deny that most white people are too ignorant to acknowledge that they have it easier than blacks in this country, or that white privilege is a real thing in the here and now, none of that gives this man any right to take a woman by gun point and rape her, no matter what he has experienced. I mean, it sounds to me like you might have had some pretty negative experiences at the hands of racism, are you gonna tell me that you think that gives you the right to rape a woman?

We should all ignore comments like BruthazSista's. It's sad to think that there are still people out here that feel that way. Oh well, no sweat off my back. I am educated, have a great job and raise my child to be an upstanding citizen. I wonder what most of these people's children do? Or for that matter, what they do? Probably nothing, but spread their hatred behind a computer screen. REALLY SAD!!
