August 27-28, 2014, Trooper William Craddock Investigates Report of Rape in New Bethlehem

Around 10:37 p.m. on August 27, 2014, Trooper William Craddock of the Pennsylvania State Police, Troop C, Clarion, was informed that a 20-year-old Clearfield woman contacted Clarion-based State Police to report that she had “just been raped” and was following the individual who allegedly raped her. The victim provided the license plate number of the vehicle to police. A check of the CLEAN/NCIC system revealed the vehicle was a 1998 Chevrolet truck registered to Douglas Greenawalt.

Police interviewed the victim in the early morning hours of August 28 at the Clarion Hospital and at PSP Clarion, where she stated that she met an individual via a dating website approximately three or four days prior to the alleged rape. The victim stated that she knew the individual as “Douglas” and that his last name was “Green-something.” She then stated that he had told her “she was cute” and that he would like to be in a relationship with her and wouldn’t have sex with her until they were (in a relationship), according to the Criminal Complaint.

The victim went on to describe the alleged incident to police. She stated that she met the defendant at Sunoco in New Bethlehem on Wednesday, August 27, where she got into his truck and “they drove for about 10-15 minutes to a gas well site off a dirt road,” according to the complaint. The victim stated that she did not know exactly where she was because she is not from the area.

According to the Criminal Complaint, the victim told police that she and the defendant got out of the truck and were looking at the stars and talking while sitting on the truck’s tailgate. The victim told police that the defendant tried to kiss her, and she pushed him away. She then stated that the defendant allegedly grabbed the front of her shorts and shirt and pushed her back into the bed of the truck.

The Criminal Complaint states the victim told police that she yelled at the defendant and asked him to stop. He then allegedly unbuttoned her shorts, pulled off her shorts and underwear, and pushed her down by the neck as she tried to sit up. She also stated that he repeatedly pulled her down by her hair from underneath and, at some point, she hit her head on a wooden board in the back of the defendant’s truck. The victim stated that the defendant then allegedly forcibly raped her vaginally.

The Criminal Complaint states that the victim described the defendant to Trooper Craddock, at which point, she was shown a picture of Greenawalt. She was able to positively identify Greenawalt, according to police. Following the interview, Trooper Craddock went to Greenawalt’s residence. Craddock states in the Criminal Complaint that the defendant came to the door dressed exactly as the victim described – wearing a florescent-yellow shirt, blue jeans, and work boots.

Police also located Greenawalt’s vehicle at the residence. According to police, the vehicle matched the description provided by the victim – a maroon Chevrolet with “Chevrolet” in silver on the tailgate. The victim also told police there was a “potted plant in the bed of the truck.” Police located a 2-3 foot high corn stalk growing in the right corner of the bed. Pieces of wood were also located in the bed as described by the victim, according to police.

Charges were filed against Greenawalt, and he was lodged in the Clarion County Jail in lieu of $100,000.00 bail.

August 27, 2014 – Trooper Craddock’s Investigation Begins

Beginning on August 27, 2014, Trooper Craddock became involved in several investigations involving Greenawalt. It has been learned through these investigations that Greenawalt has allegedly contacted young females, including minors, on Facebook and an online dating website called POF.com (Plenty of Fish). Greenawalt has allegedly used the profile name “Dunn Daniel” on Facebook and has used it as far back as at least October of 2013.

Trooper Craddock was assigned the follow-up of a rape investigation which occurred on January 30, 2014.

According to the Criminal Complaint, the investigation revealed that the victim, a 16-year-old female, had allegedly been contacted by Greenawalt on Facebook from profile “Dunn Daniel” inquiring if she needed a ride. Greenawalt allegedly made arrangements to pick up the victim near her residence with the pretense that he would be giving her a ride to Pittsburgh. The victim advised that she had told Greenawalt that she was 16 years old and that Greenawalt told her that he was 21 years old.

The Criminal Complaint indicates Greenawalt picked up the victim and told her his name was Dunn, but the victim related that Greenawalt was wearing a jacket with the name “Doug” on it. As they are driving from the parking lot across from the Clarion University, Greenawalt allegedly told the victim that he needed to go to his house to get something. The victim related that they arrived at a residence that is “out in the middle of nowhere” and that Greenawalt parked alongside a barn across from the house. The victim related that Greenawalt exited the truck and asked her if she was coming in, and the victim told him no that she would stay right here.

The victim related that Greenawalt then allegedly encouraged her to come in to see his dogs. The victim described an enclosed porch on the side of the house where the dogs were kept. This matches Greenawalt’s residence as Trooper Craddock found it on August 28, 2014, as well as Greenawalt’s truck parked across the street at the side of a barn, according to the Criminal Complaint.

According to the Criminal Complaint, the victim related that when she entered Greenawalt’s residence, she had set her cellular phone on the counter, and that Greenawalt, at some point, picked up her phone and ran upstairs. The victim stated that she yelled at Greenawalt to give it back to her and he allegedly told her to “come and get it.” The victim related that she told him “no” and then about a minute went by, and Greenawalt did not come back, so she went upstairs. The victim related that she found Greenawalt in a bedroom to the left of the top of the stairs standing in the room holding her phone. The victim stated that she went into the room and Greenawalt allegedly would not give her phone back and went to the door and locked it behind her. The victim stated that she asked him what he was doing, and he allegedly replied that he didn’t know.

The Criminal Complaint states the victim related that Greenawalt asked her to take her clothes off, to which she replied “no” and that Greenawalt allegedly then pushed her down onto the bed an told her repeatedly to take her clothes off and she said “no” and asked him again what he was doing. The victim related that Greenawalt then held her arms down and started kissing her and told her that she was beautiful and wished that she was his, before he allegedly started taking his clothes off. The victim related that she told him “no,” that she did not want this to happen. Then, Greenawalt allegedly got on top of her and forcibly removed her clothes and grabbed her by the hair at the back of her head and forced her to perform oral sex on him and then forced her legs apart and penetrated her. The victim related that she had told Greenawalt that he was hurting her, and he allegedly said “it shouldn’t hurt, it should feel good.”

The victim related that she then told him that she wanted to go home, and as they were leaving, Greenawalt allegedly grabbed a pistol, and when they were in his truck, he set it beside him and allegedly told her that if she told anybody, he would “find her and use this.” The victim related that Greenawalt began sending her texts and messages after he dropped her off and continuing for weeks. These messages allegedly included telling her that “they should get together and do that again” and messages allegedly offering her large amounts of money to have sex with him. The victim related that Greenawalt’s vehicle was a beat up red truck and that Greenawalt’s profile on Facebook was “Dunn Daniel” and that afterwards, she believed that he used another profile, David Landry or Laundry. When shown a picture, the victim positively identified Greenawalt, according to the Criminal Complaint.

She said that she got in the truck and had asked to see the money, and Greenawalt told her she could see it afterwards. She advised that she then got out of the truck and left and was heading to WalMart and Greenawalt was following her, so she called him and he said that she could see the money at WalMart, so she stopped at WalMart. He still wouldn’t show her the money, so she left. She advised that she was contacted again by Greenawalt, and he offered her a lot more than $1500.00 to have sex with him, and they made an agreement to meet at a local church, but that she did not show up. She could not remember the exact amount.
