EXCLUSIVE BREAKING: Rape and Strangulation Alleged in Selinsgrove Apt, Virginia Man Charged.


By Hilde Kate Lysiak

A Selinsgrove woman was allegedly raped and strangled in her Market Street apartment by a man she had just met, according to police.

The victim was taken to Evangelical Hospital on March 25th after claiming that Charles Ernest Moxley “forcibly had sex with her without her permission,” according to the criminal complaint. The victim was also choked, according to police.

The victim claims that she went to sleep feeling safe because she believed her roommate was awake.

“Victim H stated on Saturday morning at approx 0300 hours is when the unwanted sex occurred at (OSN is withholding the address). Victim H stated that this was the first time meeting Moxley. Victim H stated she thought she was safe because her roommate was home but then the roommate fell asleep and that is when Moxley forced him in her,” read the criminal complaint.

The victim’s roommate backed up her claim in a written statement, according to police.

“I was in my computer room and the victim came to me and informed me that Charles Moxley forced himself on her earlier that morning. Where I suggested that he should leave. Then Charles Moxley came to speak with me where he admitted “he did force himself on her because of impulse where I stated to him that not how he treats a woman. He kept on stating yes he did do it again because his parents didn’t raise him like that!! From there he went to bed and I did not hear him the rest of the night,” read the statement.

In a series of text messages, Moxley allegedly claimed that he “wasn’t thinking at the time,” according to police.

The alleged text messages between Moxley and the victim are below:

Victim H: You do not respect me when I say no sex I meant it and it feels like rape honestly.

Victim H: I’m not going through this I’m sorry.

Moxley: Well that wasn’t my intention but whatever you wanna do but we have to leave here at 9 and I’ll drive down there and that’s why you say stop but I’m sorry I was just trying to make a moment I’m nothing but a fuck up to the world.

Moxley: IDC anymore that no one wants me I just wanna go home in the morning

Victim H: Please just answer my question.

Victim H: Then I’ll go.

Moxley: What question babe

Victim H: I know but why did you force me why didn’t you stop when I said so

Moxley: I did answer I said IDK I wasn’t thinking at the time

Victim H: Even when I yelled at you and tried to stop and said no?

Moxley: I know but let’s drop it I feel bad and I don’t wanna have problems like that again I wanna just do everything you want like be calm and

Moxley: If you are gonna start drama I don’t want to hear it babe.

Victim H: I need to get this off my chest please answer me when I said no I did not want to have sex from the first time we chatted you forced me too!! I said no and I said stop but you held me down…I’m just trying to get you to admit what you did wrong then I’m done.

Victim H: I need to know what was going through your head because I’m trying to work things out on my head.

Moxley: No your trying to get me in trouble and admit to sumthing I didn’t do I’m not dumb you prolly have the cops there and what not.

Moxley is charged with Rape by Force, Aggravated Assault, and Strangulation.

It isn’t the first time Moxley has been suspected of criminal actions. In 2010 he was arrested after allegedly touching a 13-year-old girl “inappropriately.”  The OSN is trying to figure out what happened to those charges.

The preliminary hearing will be 5/22 at 10:45 am.

    The gal who had the date, I want to know… are you on a online dating website? Are there pictures of you where booze is served, and pictures of you drinking? Your pics, are you making duck face expressions? A man you barely knew was invited into YOUR apartment. Do you realize how very dangerous this is? You are not going to find prince charming in a garbage dump. Your parents dropped the ball- as they raised you to make bad choices. Get right with Christ and find a church. When you put yourself in the worldly heathen sceen- you do not meet princes.

      SHAME on you— blaming the victim. N O MEANS NO. You are legitimizing rape.

      I’m sorry, I fail to see how this is HER fault. No means no, period. What kind of idiot writes a comment like this? Shame on you for victim blaming.

      That’s a very harsh thing to say to someone you barely know. You’re telling her to find Christ. Do you think Jesus Christ would approve of you judging someone like that? That’s for Jesus to do, not you. Regardless if she barely knew him or not , she should NOT have to worry about being raped. What do you have to say for those individuals that DO get raped and have known their attacker for a while? No one should EVER have to go through this or worry about this.

    The other thing is now this poor girl is damaged goods. She has no chance at a husband and family. This is not fair to her. When a man marries, he wants a woman that is pure. Even tho she is a nice gal- she now has no chance that a god fearing man will ask her dad for his daughters hand in marriage. I weap for our young people.

      You need to take your garbage comments and shove them where the sun doesn’t shine. And perhaps learn to spell while you’re at it.

      That’s absurd, Resident. No decent man is going to reject her because she was raped. Where do you get these medieval ideas? You sound very ignorant and backward.

  6. He's innocent!

    First off, I would like to enlighten everyone who has made a comment on this article, disrespectful or not. Not a single one of you know this female nor this male. I personally know the man being accused of this crime and he has done NOTHING wrong. Those posted “text messages” are pulled from their ENTIRE conversation. The text messages shown do not flow in the original messages. In this particular instance the messages on this article were about something completely different then what’s been posted. From other sources, this women shows signs and traits of a mentally ill patient. I hope when all is said and done she be sent to jail for false accusations. The male refused to be in a relationship with her when they met. He was hesitant to even meet her but he went anyways. AFTER their weekend was up, SHE TOOK HIM HOME-to Virginia and went inside and spoke with his parents. She wanted something more, he didn’t-she called the cops because she was upset and thought she could get away with something. Not ONCE during their intercourse did she say no. Now before any of you have anything negative to say on this comment just understand not one of you know him. Don’t run your mouth with comments when you don’t know the facts. That’s a bad character trait. Now, start rolling out your negative comments and for those who can’t mind their own business, I hope to see you on their trial day since you have SO much to say.

      You say he did nothing wrong , YET he admitted to it. Riddle me that Batman?! I have met him. He dated my friend and did her dirty. Lied about getting tested for STDS and then ended up giving her one. When she confronted him, he denied. Then admitted to never getting tested and then finally blocked her.


  7. He didn't do this. I've known him for years

    Amen this makes no sense. If she barely knew him, why drive 2 hours to pick him up? If he allegedly raped you, why would you agree to take him home? If she had called the cops immediately after the sexual contact occurred, I’d believe her. As “He’s Innocent” said her allegation makes no sense. Why would you agree to take someone back home if they allegedly raped you? Even then, she could have told his parents or driven to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and told them. I hope he’s acquitted or gets the case dismissed with prejudice and then expunged from his record.
