Curtez Graham, 18, is charged with a host of felonies for allegedly raping a 65-year-old St. Paul woman whose home he burglarized twice in 2011.

After he was arrested, Graham told cops he broke into the woman's house and raped her "because the woman had sent him away for 14 months," the criminal complaint says.

Earlier this month, Graham was granted a furlough from the juvenile corrections facility in Red Wing where he was serving time for the 2011 burglaries. But he severed a GPS bracelet that was monitoring his movements and returned to the woman's Lexington-Hamline neighborhood home early Wednesday.

The woman and a man she was sleeping with were awoken by Graham, who had a pair of scissors in his hand. The Pioneer Press, citing the complaint, tells the story from there:
Graham told the man to tie himself up. He repeatedly threatened to kill the man if he didn't do as he was told.

Graham raped the woman on the bed, then told her to use the bathroom and take a shower. Then, he demanded money from her. Graham took money and the man's cellphone.

Graham told the pair to remain upstairs and count to 100 before coming out. He threatened, "Don't call the police -- I can come and get you anytime," the complaint said.
Despite Graham's threats, the woman called police to report the incident. She recognized Graham from the 2011 burglaries and told cops that during the course of Wednesday's incident, Graham told her, "Well, you are really keeping the place up and things are nice and clean."

Graham was arrested that same day with the male victim's cell phone on him. He initially denied raping the woman, but when police told him DNA evidence might still be found at the apartment even though he made the woman shower, he came clean.

"Graham became silent and began to tear up," the complaint says. "Graham said he had been drinking with friends and had been thinking about the situation."

Graham admitted to breaking a window to gain access to the home. He said "he was drunk and just wanted to scare her," the complaint says. He told officers "he stopped having sex" with the woman "because he's 'not that kind of person.'"

Would you people spouting the racist remarks be happier if he was white and did this horrendous act? This was a foul criminal  act by a rotten person whom I hope gets put away for many  many years--the racist crap is idiotic.

Benjamin I cannot take you seriously considering you cannot spell and the only response that your lethargic mind can come up with is making a internet penis urinating through someone else's name (you spelled my name wrong and its right in front of your face). What this guy did was wrong but you act like black people are to blame for one mans actions.

Benjamin, honestly it didn't even cross my mind his race. He's a sick bastard whatever race. That poor woman and man who was there with her will forever have to work past the trauma of this. But I knew your race by your comment.

@CinBlueland lol you are a racist.  You bring race into every story like a creepy freak.  You think this guy did this because of his race and not because he is a creepy troubled guy.  When you think skin color gives you magic powers and magically predisposes you towards acting a certain way you are a racist.  Racism has been proven so wrong and destructive over time it has no place in society.  Your worldview is polluted by racism and it makes you incapable of discussion.  Who cares what you think about Obama?  Your hate of him comes from your hate of entire group of people.  You'd never actually give Obama a fair chance because you hate the color of his skin, not the content of his character or the content of his ideas.   The only people who want to hear race based arguments are the stupid dead enders at websites like Stormfront and Fox News.   Go away because no one wants you here.  I will never stop trolling a stupid evil bigot like you, especially when you whine about civility.   A little white power KKK wannabee like you doesn't get to give lectures of civility.  I don't get why you are so worried about being called a racist.  Your comments and actions leave no doubt.

@Michael Tejeda Confused? are you defending this POS?

Yes, sorry.. He's Black.. sorry we should forgive his antisocial / rapist acitivities because his ancestors were oppressed.

White people have several centuries of history murdering, raping, torturing and enslaving people in this country. This is unquestionably documented fact. So, watch your mouth. The actions of some don't represent all.

@Christy Beberg Christy, can we get your address? Nothing weird, we'd just like to allegedly like to know you better. 

Creepy isn't it... No I'm not serious..

@Christy Beberg I like a lady willing to defend an "alleged" granny-raper.

@Ryan M. Jasurda Also, City Pages could save a lot of money by not having an employee constantly grabbing your wrist and forcing you to click on links. It's win-win.

@MicheleBachmann@CinBluelandThanks MB, Note, CP published his pic. My comments would have been the same regardless of race. Once again, are you even capable of ordering black coffee, or black licorice? Just to check, when are you going to share your roof with Curtez?

CinBlueland
CinBlueland topcommenter

Mike, I really want you to stand up and say that any and all criminal acts are ok if commited by blacks.

Really they're just lashing back at umm what? Being sold by their fellow Africans?

Wait, they're given welfare, can get obese, have children to gain more welfare money.. Why do I still see commercials asking for donations to Africa? Don't they care about their ancestors?

CinBlueland

@Bestgame24 Really, do you want to go down that road? The US is just over 2 centuries old. We've really made strides to correct past issues.. Where is slavery still active? Africa, where did Slavers get slaves from? It wasn't White guys running down natives in Africa. 

Apologies, but I'm sick of this fable, no we're not clean in this issue, but slaves were sold Europeans by other Africans. Rowandan genocide? Or lets bring it home. Chicago.

Get past your White guilt and look at reality. You can still go to an Eastern republic and buy a white slave. 

Murdering/Raping? Have you checked the UN peacekeeping forces record?

Yes, every US incident is blown up, we're horrible people.. 

Caste system in India.. well that's just their culture..

Documented fact, black on black crime is higher than any other.

@CinBlueland Also the creepy sexist way you demanded a woman's address because she would dare express her opinion is weird.  You are just a weird creepy racist sexist guy.  

MicheleBachmann
MicheleBachmann topcommenter

@CinBlueland It's just creepy and racist that for an article about a criminal you feel the need to talk about slavery was actually done by black people.  That indicates to me and anyone else with a brain you are obsessed with black people, black men in particular.  It's creepy and weird that black criminals make you fly off into a rage where all you can talk about is how bad all black people are, racism isn't real, and you aren't a racist.   That's like a textbook case of a stupid racist weirdo.  

MicheleBachmann
MicheleBachmann topcommenter

@CinBlueland  The other funny thing is you are too stupid to read and learn.  You are so stupid you just comment in a stupid little rage and miss the point.   Michael Tejeda was responding to a blatantly racist comment below.   Maybe actually read things before you post stupid. 

MicheleBachmann
MicheleBachmann topcommenter

@CinBlueland Further fun proof that you are a racist.  You always whine and complain about civility in my posts.  Once again you have nothing to say about open racism instead you agree with it and make further racist comments.  Why don't you just admit you are a racist?  Why pretend and lie?   

CinBlueland

@Bestgame24

Documented fact, black on black crime is higher than any other, check the records for Chicago, D.C.?

So, maybe back off the "White people and Centuries of murdering and raping" 

When was the last time an English, American, or Dutch stoned a girl to death for being raped?
