A Toledo man has been charged with a rape after an alleged incident early Saturday outside a Holiday Lakes location in rural Willard.

David Barnum, 38, is currently in custody at the Huron County Jail.

"He's being held without bond," Huron County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Ted Patrick said Sunday. "He will have a hearing tomorrow (today).

"The incident allegedly happened in the Holiday Lakes area outside the restaurant and lounge area," Patrick said. "The victim is a 37-year-old female from Willard."

Patrick said no other details were available as the investigation continues.

who thinks it's funny that these "thugs" have to get a teardrop tattoo next to their eye so we know that they have lost someone, they all just want a little pity party thrown for them, who would have known that the big bad gangsters just needed a little attention. what a loser, nice tat on your neck too, think you could have paid someone to do one for you with all the money after you robbed some store or poor person, instead of trying to do it yourself in a mirror

buckeye.. I agree with everything you have said, but I was told that the "thugs" with the tear drop tattoos were symbolic of each person that they have KILLED.. so if there is one it is one, two, it is two... etc...so ironically they are symbolically admitting to murder... I guess that is impressive in the prison gang...

His drops are family members he has lost. Has absolutely nothing to do with killing anyone.

The tear drop is meant to mean that they murdered in prison or elsewhere, not family they lost. The wanna be's are just make believe thugs. And anyone ever met anyone with a neck tat that hasn't been in prison or trouble with the cops?

I know this guy and have talked with him several times about his tattoos, he hasn't murdered anyone. They are for family members he has lost.

Yes, I know many of them. Mothers, fathers, wives, husbands....all that work, support their families. Have never been in trouble with the law. Also know people with no tattoos at all, out stealing, and doing drugs, and carted to jail once a year or more. I also do know somw tattooed people in trouble. And non tattooed never in trouble. Black, white, spanish and a couple asian friends. It is the "person" not "how they look"

WOW! I would have never thought Dave would do this. He didn't live at Holiday Lakes, he worked there at the restaurant. I knew him through there but never hung out with the guy. I ask him about his tats once and he told me he got them as a joke but apparently not. I am starting to notice a trend with all the crimes being committed in Willard and the Willard area....IT'S NOT BEING DONE BY WILLARD PEOPLE. Why people from out of town consistently come to this area and commit crime is beyond me. It seems like the Willard PD and the citizens are on track while getting black eyes from out of towners. This is all really starting to get out of control. It's only going to be a matter of time before someone gets tired of it and starts taking care of the problems themselves.

Don't judge him before the evidence comes out.. Dave has always seemed like a good guy.. funny as hell and easy to get along with.. ill wait and see what happens with this before I pass judgment on him.

OHHH MYYYY Gosh truthbetold!! Have you never notice on the news or in the papers...the neighbors and friends ALWAYS say" oh he was such a nice guy". Open your eys and keep them on your Friends and Neighbors...Geez!

truthbetold77

I understand that completely.. And in no way do I condone Rape at all.. I was just stating that from what I know of dave he has always been respectful and an outgoing person.. I would of never thought he would do anything like this. If he is guilty then yes he needs to be punished with a lengthy prison term.

Wasp71. I happen to have three neck "tats". And I have never been in trouble with the cops so let's not judge a book by its cover...thanks

JudgeMeNot

Did you get them simply because every other dumba$$ is doing it?

Tats=body art, way of expressing self...or remembrance of someone or something. I am wondering how this is any different from people coloring/curling/straightening etc, their hair. People using Rogaine or hair plugs. Women getting their nails painted/done, or getting fake nails. Women applying make up before leaving the house. Getting caps or veneers (sp) put on teeth. How is any of this different? I know many many people with tattoos, and some with neck tats that are loving parents that work and take care of their kids. Have NEVER been in trouble with the law. IMO tattoos are NO different than everything above.

JudgeMeNot

Ink is neither edgy or cool anymore,Its just a warning sign to anyone who isnt a piece of sh$t to steer clear of them.

Tats are permanant

brutalyhonest

C'mon people...this story has NOTHING what so ever to do with Tattoos or body piercings. It has to do with Rape..nothing more. Just keep in mind some you have sons and daughters that go out on the weekends...Don't ever think for one second this could not happen to one of them.. Rape is Rape...Thats all there is to it..

Let's all just wait for the truth to come out & justice to be served. Always 2 sides to a story & the truth lies within. However, The Holiday Lakes Brass Pelican location is often nothing but a drunk-fest. The staff can be highly unprofessional at times. Always drinking & fraternizing with guests. I've been in for dinner & drinks when the music & inappropriate videos were blaring & have even seen custom made "porn" type pictures displayed on the tv screen. The posse that works there seems to think its all in good taste. Not the best environment some times. It's just not a good mix on most nights for people that just want clean fun. It's sad that something like this had to allegedly happen. Trouble has been brewing for awhile there & things need to change. I just hope the victim isn't victimized & the truth comes out.

brutalyhonest

I go to the Brass Pelican several nights per week...I have NEVER seen a porn video or anything of the sort...And to be honest...I have never seen the staff there drink unless they were not working...The Brass is the only "Decent" place to go to have a good time.If a problem occures out there..it is taken care imediately. I would suggest, that if you don't like what you see at the Pelican...hey..try the other places within a 5 mile radius...We're Having Fun Now !!

Come on...Havana Tavern isn't that bad... ;-)

First off, learn some proper English. You don't have a right to say her name because you are not apart of this and it is none of your business, at all. You sound ignorant saying "she brought this on herself", rape victims do not bring it onto themselves. And I never said a bad thing about him, so you can shut up on that part too. You should just count yourself out of this whole situation because it's none of your damn concern. You are an ignorant person just for your remarks.

bluntandhonest

I would like to personally say that you sir, or ma'am, are a complete nuisance and have no business putting that womens name out into the public. And how about you learn proper English. Its were not we're. we're is a contraction of the words we are. That is elementary my friend. How exactly can someone bring rape onto themselves? Please explain that to me. How can someone bring rape into their lives. It wasn't like she was telling him to do it. So my question is WERE you there? Exactly. Probably not. And she has family and friends also. So why can you talk crap about her but no one can talk crap about him? So please. Sit down. Shut up. Now you may be done(:

Wonder if they were having consensual sex and someone walked in on them and due to the way he looks she called rape cause she thinks she is so above people.

bluntandhonest

Probably not? Noone would lie about rape. Noone. You dony know what happened. Noone knows. So stfu.

truthbetold77

No one lies about Rape??? thats the most ignorant statement i have ever heard!! Woman lie about being raped all the time! Yolo i agree with you 100% Women cry rape when they get caught in a situation that they didnt want anyone knowing they were in.. now thats blunt and honest!

Idontcareiloveit

Thank you for saying this THANK YOU!!!!! Women cry rape when there caught and other situations that's what she did she was caught.

bluntandhonest

Well since you like to think that this women is lying then maybr you're lying. Hmmmmm. Lets grow up. Quit starting stuff and adding unnecessary drama.

Moderators have removed this comment because it contained Profane, obscene, sexual or derogatory language.

bluntandhonest

She's done it before? Really? Of shes done it before then the whole town would be hearibg about it. But this is the first time. Shes not a low skum bag like yourself. You put her out into the worls before the trial even happend. Youre being ignorant because you werent there either. So you don't know the truth. People lie. Get over it

shutup419

You're not speaking your mind, you're degrading a woman who has been a victim. It takes a lot for someone to say that it was rape, because that is a traumatic incident to go through. You are not speaking your mind you are pointing fingers and down talking someone you probably don't even know. You are being ignorant because your accusing a woman of bringing this on themselves and calling her a liar when you probably know nothing so do yourself a favor and stop and just let the courts decide. You are not her or him so you don't know anything that happened so just quit and stop acting like you know it all.
