Terrifying: Rapist Stalks, Holds Victim Hostage Inside Her Home

North Canton, OH - A rapist on the loose in Stark County.

He held a woman hostage inside her own apartment and what's worse - the creep had been stalking his victim for weeks!

The suspect "Dave" told his victim he had been watching her for a month, ever since she loaned him a cigarette lighter.

Police describe "Dave" as a white male in his late 20's, solid build, shaved head with no facial hair. He possibly works at a North Canton printing company.
