The authorities reported that an IRS agent from Boston has kidnapped, assaulted, raped, and strangulated a 21-year-old intern after going out for drinks. Reportedly, the IRS agent continued to work at the governmental agency even after the allegations surfaced.
IRS Agent Raped Intern in Job Car
On Wednesday, the Boston authorities arrested 44-year-old James Clarke, an IRS agent, and charged him with rape, aggravated rap, battery, strangulation, indecent assault, and battery/assault with a deadly weapon.
Clarke’s arrest stems from an incident which allegedly occurred on the 26th of July 2017. According to the man’s arrest warrant, on that day, Clarke invited a 21-year-old college student for a couple of drinks at a Boston pub.
After that, the IRS agent offered to take her to the nearest train station so that she could hitch a ride home. The woman took up Clarke on his offer and jumped into his vehicle. However, according to the 21-year-old college student, whose name was not made public, instead of driving her to the South Station, Clarke took her to a secluded parking garage.
The woman told the police that, upon stopping the vehicle, the IRS agent blocked the doors, and handcuffed the woman to the passenger door. After that, Clarke brandished his service weapon and threatened to kill her if she did not have sex with him. Allegedly, the man also tried to strangle her during the assault.
Following the attack, Clarke left his victim to the South Station. From there, the woman called the authorities who rushed her to the nearest hospital for treatment. Despite rumors of Clarke’s deed emerged long before he was indicted, it would appear that the governmental agency failed to take any disciplinary actions, allowing Clarke to work unimpeded.
The man is now behind bars, waiting for his trial which was scheduled for the 5th of April.
