A Raleigh man was arrested Saturday after police say he attempted to kidnap and rape a woman while she was delivering packages from Amazon.
In an announcement on Tuesday, Raleigh Police said the victim was delivering Amazon packages around 3 p.m. in the 2900 block of Market Bridge Lane when 26-year-old Jaron Deon Safran approached her and grabbed her.
Police say the victim got away after a struggle and was not injured.
A 911 caller told police Safran rode off on a bicycle, stating, “He was riding around on his bike looking real creepy.”
Safran was arrested Saturday afternoon and charged with attempted rape, second-degree kidnapping, and sexual battery in connection with the incident.
Safran is being held in the Wake County Detention Center under a $275,000 secured bond.
If he posts bond, he is ordered to avoid contact with the victim.
His next court appearance is scheduled for May 13.
