February 6 coverage:

UPDATE: Suspect in Sexual Assault Cleared When DNA Evidence Doesn't Match

KETTERING -- Police said the man who attacked a woman last week at a shopping plaza, remains at large.

DNA has cleared charges against a Dayton man accused of kidnapping and sexual assault.

Kettering Officer Ron Roberts said DNA testing proved that Joseph M. Budz, 49, is no longer their suspect in the abduction of a woman in the Big Lots parking lot, last week on Wilmington Pike.

"The DNA taken from the scene did not match his DNA," he said.

Budz was arrested last week after being stopped for jaywalking. A Kettering officer noticed Budz's resemblance to the police artist's sketch of the suspect from the assault.

After police took Budz into custody, the victim of the assault picked Budz out of a line up. He was booked into jail on charges of kidnapping, gross sexual imposition and felony theft.
Those charges have been dropped.

Budz remains in jail on an outstanding warrant unrelated to the abduction and assault case.

The DNA collected at the scene will now go into a nationwide data base, in hopes to arrest the correct suspect.

"We want the right man behind bars," Roberts said.

KETTERING -- The man suspected in a January 26 sexual assault who was picked up while jaywalking has been cleared of those charges after investigators say DNA evidence wasn't a match.

Joseph M. Budz, 49, of Dayton was arrested by Kettering Police about midnight Tuesday, after officers said he was jaywalking on East Dorothy Lane near Bobbie Place.

The arresting officer reportedly noticed Budz resembled the suspect sketch that Kettering Police had released.

He was jailed on kidnapping, gross sexual imposition and felony theft charges.

Police Arrest Man They Say Abducted, Sexually Assaulted Woman

KETTERING--Police have arrested the man they say sexually assaulted and abducted a woman over the weekend.

Joseph M. Budz, 49, of Dayton was arrested by Kettering Police about 12 a.m. Tuesday, after officers caught him jaywalking on East Dorothy Lane near Bobbie Place, according to a release from the Kettering Police Department.

The arresting officer reportedly noticed Budz resembled the suspect sketch that Kettering Police released on Monday.

Police arrested Budz on a previous warrant for failing to comply from a previous disorderly conduct arrest.

He was taken to the Kettering Jail where he was booked for kidnapping, gross sexual imposition and felony theft. Formal charges are pending from the Montgomery County Prosecutor's Office.





Earlier coverage:

KETTERING -- Police need your help to identify and locate the man they said allegedly abducted and sexually assaulted a woman over the weekend.

The alleged incident happened about 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of the Big Lots located at 2800 Wilmington Pike.

A woman was inside her car when an unknown man entered the vehicle and allegedly sexually assaulted her, police said.

After the alleged sexual assault, the suspect then allegedly abducted the victim, driving her vehicle to an apartment complex on Bobbie Place. That’s where police said the suspect abandoned the vehicle and took off on foot towards East Dorothy Lane.

Police are looking for a white male approximately between 30 and 40 years of age, standing about 5’8” tall and weighing an estimated 150 pounds, with a slight tan. The suspect reportedly has a scruffy beard and was last seen wearing blue jeans, a dark jacket and a burgundy and blue stocking cap.

Police issued this drawing as a description of the suspect and the style stocking cap he was wearing at the time of the alleged incident.

Anyone with information or who was in the area at the time of the crime should call the Kettering Police Department and speak with Detective Mason at 937-296-2583.
