Nationwide Warrant Issued for Burnsville Rape Suspect
Police say Todd Deon Rolack raped an intoxicated 16-year-old girl last February while she was unconscious on his bed.
A nationwide arrest warrant has been issued for a Burnsville man accused of raping an unconscious teenager last February.
Todd Deon Rolack, 21, is charged with fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct with a helpless victim, a felony with a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
According to the criminal complaint, Burnsville police were called to a hospital just after 3 a.m. Feb. 26 to investigate a reported rape.
Officers spoke to the 16-year-old female victim, who said she had gone to a party at Rolack’s apartment in the 1500 block of Highway 13 with two other people. She said she was intoxicated and spent most of her time at the party sitting on a couch, watching television.
One of the girl’s friends said she went into Rolack’s bedroom about 2 a.m. because the victim had passed out and had been put on the bed. She said she knocked, then opened the door, and saw Rolack facing her, wearing only a T-shirt.
Rolack pulled down the shirt to conceal his genitals and yelled, “Get out of here!” at the woman, advancing toward her, according to the complaint. The woman said she could see the victim lying on the mattress, nude from the waist down, and she also saw the victim’s jeans and underwear lying on the floor.
The woman and the victim’s other friend left the party and called the victim’s mother, who picked up the victim and took her to the hospital.
After they left the hospital, the victim’s mother and one of her friends returned to Rolack’s apartment to pick up her belongings. The friend said that while she was looking around Rolack’s bedroom to find the victim’s cell phone, she saw a used condom under the bed.
Police went to Rolack’s apartment on March 1 to execute a search warrant. Rolack told an investigator that he knew why officers were at his apartment, and that nothing had happened and he wasn’t worried about “any rape or anything,” according to the complaint.
Rolack was asked at various times whether he had any contact with the victim the night of the party, and he said that nothing had happened and he couldn’t remember the events of the evening, though he claimed to have had “close to no alcohol that night” and that he wasn’t “wasted,” according to the complaint.
Rolack denied taking off the victim’s clothing and said he couldn’t remember whether he was wearing underwear or pants, the complaint says.
Police took a DNA sample from Rolack and compared it to a specimen taken from the victim. Results showed that Rolack or one of his male relatives had raped the victim, the complaint says.
Investigators tried to locate Rolack numerous times in May and July, and were unable to find him. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police.
