Vigilantes dish out beating to suspected Joliet rapist

12-20-2009 Illinois:

An accused rapist got a taste of street style justice after a group of men beat him for allegedly raping a Joliet woman.

Marciano Washington, 39, is accused of raping an acquaintence in her home early Friday while she slept in a room with her 2-year-old son, according to police.

After the assault, the victim alerted her roommate who then waited out front for police to arrive. According to a story in the Herald-News, that's when the woman told a group of passing men what happened and they reportedly went after Washington, hitting and kicking him.

Police arrived, the beating stopped and the vigilantes fled, the Herald reports. Washington was treated at a local hospital and then booked in the Will County Jail.

Washington is charged with home invasion and criminal sexual assault. He is from the 400 block of Pheasant Run in Joliet. His booking information says he is a barber. ..Source.. by Deborah O'Malley
