Man arrested in rapes, robberies heads to court

From June 16-27, Omar Cortez Sharpe, 26, was having the time of his life. And it’s a good thing, because the rest of it will likely be spent behind bars.

On June 28, Sharpe was arrested and charged with one count of first-degree kidnapping, two counts of first-degree rape, three counts of second-degree kidnapping, four counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and two counts of robbery.

It all began on June 16, when Sharpe allegedly kidnapped a Wilmington woman, brought her to Raleigh and raped her in the woods near Bonneville Court.

Within a week, Sharpe was also considered a suspect in a kidnapping of another woman from her apartment on Hylton Drive. He allegedly pushed the woman into her vehicle, took her car keys and drove around for a while before taking her to the Green Road Park and raping her. The woman escaped and managed to flag down a police officer.

The following Monday, June 25, a woman was abducted from a Wal-Mart parking lot. Sharpe, armed with a gun, forced her to make two withdrawals from and ATM before releasing her.

Sharpe is also accused of hiding inside a sport utility vehicle while a woman and her five-year-old daughter were eating at Pizza Hut at the Tower Shopping Center. When they returned, Sharpe, again armed with a gun, forced her to make two bank withdrawals before letting her and her child go.

He was arrested at Tower Chopping Center one day later, winking and waving for television cameras, and is being held in Wake County Jail on $5.8 million bond. He is also facing rape and robbery charges in Wilmington.

According to his arrest record, he has previous convictions beginning in 1998: two for assaulting females, one for assault with a deadly weapon and one for larceny.

Sharpe has a court date tomorrow morning to address 15 charges. It’ll be in room 3A, if anyone’s interested, which is on the second floor to the right of the elevator. Here’s to hoping he gets what he deserves.

SCREW ALL OF YOU PIECES OF TRASH. MAKING IT SEEM LIKE WHITE GIRLS DON'T YELL RAPE WHEN THEY ARE TOO EMBARRASSED TO ADMIT THEY WERE PROSTITUTING. THE GIRL FROM WILMINGTON WAS PROSTITUTING, BUT WHEN SHE GOT ROBBED, SHE GOT MAD AND CALLED THE POLICE. OMAR HAS MENTAL DISABILITIES AND HE A F****** BB GUN AT THAT. HE HAS FAMILY THAT LOVES HIM TOO. THOSE WHITE WOMEN YELLED RAPE AND THERE WASN'T EVEN A RAPE KIT OR NOTHING TO PROVE THAT HE DID RAPE ANYONE AND TWO OF THE WOMEN DIDN'T EVEN GO TO COURT TO TESTIFY. THOSE WHITE WOMEN YELLED RAPED ON A BLACK MAN WERE MAD BECAUSE THEY WERE ROBBED AND THEY DIDN'T GET NO MONEY FOR SEX, WHICH IS PROSTITUTION. IF U WANDERING ABOUT WHO THIS IS, THIS IS HIS BROTHER!
