LENEXA, Kan. — A good Samaritan and bouncers helped a woman who ran from her car yelling for help after having allegedly been raped. Their actions helped Lenexa police catch the man thought to be responsible.

Around 1 a.m. on February 17, 31-year-old Erick Wanjiku left the bar with one woman. Police said the two had just met.

“They talked for a while, played some pool together, eventually going outside and got into a vehicle. At that point is when the attack took place,” said Den Friesen with Lenexa Police.

Aja Woods, 22, witnessed what happened. She had just left the popular Johnson County nightclub near 95th & Quivira. She was getting into her car when she noticed what was going on in the car next to her. Instead of driving away, she took matters into her own hands.

“I saw her take off running, and I literally saw him pull his pants up, buckle it and pop out of the car,” Woods said.

Woods says she knew what had happened immediately. She says she knew what she needed to do.

“I need to get this guy before he gets away,” she said.

So, Woods jumped in her car and pulled along side of the man.

“He said, ‘I need help, I need help, I’m in trouble I’m in trouble,’” Woods said.

She pretended like she was going to help him and told Wanjiku to get in her car.

“So, when he got in the car, I turned around real fast and I drove up where the bouncers were at the stoplight and they came, and my sister actually pulled him out of the car,” Woods said. “He takes off running from the bouncers, and they had to take off running after him for a minute. He actually tore a big chunk of skin out of somebody, and they got him and that was the end of it.”

Police say it could’ve been a dangerous situation but they appreciate the help.

“They understood that the lady was in trouble and it was a serious situation, so they jumped in to help out to keep it from getting any worse,” said Friesen.

As for the quick thinking of Woods, she says it’s just something she had to do.

“I saw the whole thing,” she said. “I would have felt bad if I just would not have done anything.”

Erick Wanjuiku is currently in jail charged with rape and battery. The bouncer at Saint’s Pub and Patio who was bitten by Wanjuiku did not want to talk on camera but FOX 4 was told he’s okay and he feels that he was just doing his job.

A woman was reportedly beaten and raped in the parking lot of a popular spot in Johnson County, but the attacker didn’t count on a group of good Samaritans who wouldn’t stand for his actions.

Police say a 26-year-old Johnson County woman met a man at Saints Pub and Patio, located on West 97th Street and Quivira Road, last week.

The two talked and played pool together and after some time they left, continuing to talk at the victim’s car.

That is when Erick Wanjiku is accused of forcing himself on the woman and raping her. When the attack was over, the victim told police she ran back toward the bar for help.

“I can’t recall we have ever had anything quite like that happen,” said officer Dan Friesen with the Lenexa Police Department. “She was yelling and people were aware something had happened. They all jumped in to try to help her.”

A bouncer at the bar said he chased Wanjiku into the Oak Park Mall parking lot.

He and a few others held Wanjiku down until police arrived. The bouncer said Wanjiku was fighting to get away and even bit the bouncer on the arm.

Wanjiku was arrested, charged with rape and battery and is in jail on a $100,000 bond.

    Siku za mwizi ni arubaini,maybe wife and kids were home otherwise would hve taken the new catch home instead of unleashing it all at the back of the car…Kenyans,kenyans behaving badly but it doesnt go far before paying for it!…sorry dude but you got yourself into it.

    • Karey. said

      I agree with you Mose. If he was a real gentleman, he knew where to go.. Seriously Kenyans, that is setting the bar way to low…

    • OCTOPAP said

      Ahh! Lakini kupata senye states ni ngumu bana, huyumsee aliona amepata then the senye acted like it wanted to run away…… hell no kuja hapa, pata hio… ehehehe . I don’t condone rape, but rape in America is soo broad that unless I see/have irrrefutable evidence, I’m not gonna convict shiko on a whim. Kufinga ni rape?

    • Jada .. said

      try to picture the whole story n scenereo before coming to conclusions .. which ‘rapist” would come play pool in a pub, n have afew drinks then spent time with the woman in HER CAR, and finally try to rape her. then, its not even the victim who raises the alarm, but a passersby who happened to see eric pull up his pants, and in her retarded mind, she figured out that this was rape ? guys, wake up n start thinking and analyzing for yaselves . dont let the TV and newspapers do the thinking for you. you’ll soon turn into SHEEPLE instead of thinking like PEOPLE. God, i hate people who never think for themselves … aargh!!

    Talk about trouble! He’s seriously in one. Probably the lady (victim) was running away due to the embarassement of someone else watching them do their thing.She doesn’t say whether the victim ran towards the bouncers or not. Probably they were in agreement as I don’t see how a rapist could do it just outside the club. Wengi ya wanawake wa hii nchi hawangonjei kutongozwa…they’re all over a man even before a man decide whether there’s any love n maybe this is one of that kind. Anyways, the two knows the truth. However, if he kept his pants zipped, he could be now home and dry! For now Eric, prepare for uji mingi huko ndani ya prison!

    • Herb said

      Very true,maybe they had some sort of agreement then the lady changed her mind, running away claiming to be raped.Be careful man.

  3. benard said

    Why did the victim took off running ??

    • Wanjiku (mama Njoki) said

      silly question…OFF COURSE SHE TOOK OFF RUNNING COZ SHE WAS RAPED!!..what did u expect him to do….start singing..halelujah!!

      • james mwaora said

        Kwani vijana wa Kenya hawaoni Wasichana wa kwetu walivyo warembo wankimbilia wazungu, shame on them kenyan men for loving wazungu.

      • john said

        Mama Kinjo nitutige gutuira kamwana gaka gaitu. Lets stop being jugdemental. What about if i say the so called victim hiked the price after the service and wanjiku declined to pay and she decided to teach him a lesson? i could be right too !!!!!!

      • john said

        james mwaora hehehehehehe acio matiui ku!$!@#@

    • Wamaitu said

      That was not rape. Nikuekelewa. How come the victim only features when running. It was consented only she was running away for shame then that idle woman accused him……thats my take in this weird storo….

    What about take the money and run?

    Actually, i know this young man, Eric, and i am yet to digest what really happened. I CANT BELIEVE MY EARS. I don’t know even what to say, i am still shocked My family and friends in Minnesota, are very shocked too. Just a couple of weeks ago he visited my Church Destiny Faith Ministries,Brooklyn Center and actually told him he should be going to church often . I am yet to comprehend all this. I am yet to hear his side of the story. The young man is in great trouble.
    Young men from Kenya living in the USA, work hard, and take advantage of available job opportunities from here, and make a difference in your life. Your families back home are counting on you to be pillars of success. Don’t let them down. Just do the right things. Encourage your friends to work hard. Support one another, and keep positive friends. Also. spend some time with God, and pray a lot to strengthen you to remove obstacles that you may face on you way.
    Eric, your mum, family and Pastor, back home are concerned. i guess they are having sleepless nights, pondering why,? why/, why?

    • leo said

      I would like to hear from the criminal hater regarding this case. Mwangi ! organise a Harambee and help your buddy. Iam almost certain this is not a rape but an act of stupidity.By the way,why are we not hearing anything about the so called victim? Why did she got into erics car and why wasnt she screaming for help? Was she wearing a kitenge or jeans? People, Open your wallets but zip your pants untill you get a room. You cant do it in the bush either.

    • Wamaitu said

      i dont believe he is guilty. This charged of assult are usually so cruel to men and at times are false. But it is upon him to prove his innocence…….that is the sad part. I pray that he is not guilty…….

    • john said

      How can we help this guy?

    • John munga said

      I feel the same way too. Though there are two sides to each story. Eric is a dear friend and as wrong as it seems I knowhim to be a gentleman. I pray to God thst the outcome of this saga be positive and that others may learn from this because there are alot of bad people out there thst will say anything to cover their dirt. And rest of you haters we all make stupid choices don’t be so judgmental. Thats our lords work. Erico stay strong dude.

  7. perez hilton said

    Why did they have to do it in the car in the first place…some guys are soo stupid, now he is gonna go to jail for “rape” and it actually not rape per se. This is booty call gone wrong…….both of them are wrong, he probably wasted his money in the club buying drinks for that stupid whore on the other hand he is getting in trouble coz he was very impatient.Having s** in the car, really? who does that? these are 2 grown up acting like animals. ADVICE for guys out there get a room dont be fooled. am a young guy but i will never have sex in the car.

  8. POKO said

    Kikuyus giving us a bad name again.

  9. Gilbert Kibet Langat. said

    Kenyans gone wild…you should have sticked with what ya do best Wanjiku, atleast steal from a bank or taxes, raping….stooping too low….now they have no choice ukipelekwa ndani, they will in return rape yo filthy a**. Ulipatikana pap mzee!!!

  10. kim said

    This guy needs help now not words like “paying for it!…” etc we’l Kenyans we should care 4 each other especially prob. of this magnit. Eric needs a lawyer, moral-life-recovery counselling and prayers. He is a good man but we all do stupid things at times…don’t lol!

    • Joylinn Ngema said

      Lol indeed. Will NOT hesitate to help when it comes to immigration, deaths and any other misfortune, but gotta LMFAO for this incident.

      • john said

        People always make poor judgement especially when under influence of alcohol.i dont know the truth but i feel its most likely that Eric disagreed with the so called victim on price of $um@. pengine walikuwa wamekubaliana dollar hamsini alafu akamugeuka after kumaliza akamshow kama hunipatii sooo mbili nitapiga ndulu niseme umeninajisi. Anyway i dont support prostitution but if you assess the situation very well that’s likely what happened.

      • Mangunzo said

        I agree, do not help anyone for making a stupid decision…saidia watoto wanaokufa na njaa kenya instead. Siyo, msee aliyeshindwa kuweka kitu yake ndani ya suauri. msalaba yako beba mwenyewe hahahahaha…..bad decision my ass!!

  11. Ndi mugikuyu!!!!! said

    Poko wewe ni Poko tu kama jina yako!!!!!!

  12. Mo said

    All people like to do is accuse of someone for what they hear and crucify them due to what comes out of the media, majority of the people making comments and accusing him of the so called crime should consider looking within yourselves and wonder what if this was you in the situation would you want to be accused of such things with no actual evidence to back anything up? No one has the true story of what happened. Everyone should replay that video and listen to it over and OVER again of what the witness is saying; NONE of it makes sense what so ever, her story doesn’t add up: it wouldn’t surprise me if it was for the camera glory. Someone asked and said; how come the “victim” hasn’t been interviewed? I agree with him/her, all we keep hearing is of the witness talking and nothing else. And the bouncer as well, why would he be scared of talking to the camera crew nor showing where he was bitten.

  13. Nyoka said

    She saw a black cobra inside the punts ran for help. We all been knuckleheads @ time in our lives!

    • leo said

      Yep! a monster black cobra can scare the hell out of someboby causing panic,scream and finally a flight to a safe place. Mzee nyoka probably know E.wanjiku to own this amazing animal. Anyway, why do a woman ESCORT a guy all the way inside the car right in the middle of the night? It is unheard of. This allegation only need a clever lawyer and wanjiku is a freeman. Did they scoop the semen from the victim? why is this victim not talking? You know I have this feelings that Wanjiku is the victim here. For him to be escorted all the way to his car signals something. UNFINISHED BUSINESS.

    Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?”The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you? He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

    This sex thing must be very sweet for (young) men to become temporarily insane in the pursuit of it; just juzi in Nai a jamaa almost Wanjiku’s age was set-up and mugged to death by a chips funga he had picked up in a club. Its good being a virgin (at 38) coz some of these problems I don’t have to encounter and will walk into marriage with a clear conscience.

    • irenepaul@yahoo.com said

      What????Look at me straight .You are lying or you must be fingering alot that’s why you have blisters in your fingers.Jinga wewe.

      • Netia said

        Firstly by resorting to insults shows your maturity. Secondly its not everyone who has adopted the depraved mindset of the world. Lastly, Netia is a man.

      • cherono said

        @IrenePaul, what generated such an insult to this person? Everyone has a right to behave in the best way they can with their bodies. If you don’t agree with them, don’t insult them. He/she is not obligated to prove anything to you. Whether you believe it or not there are some people who falls under that category.

  17. Jemmo said

    I Believe this was a set up!This was a very conservative neighbourhood that they have been messing with..Probably a misunderstanding between them lead to all these.Too bad though..
    Just be careful guys who to mess up with.

    majamaa, in this country, if a woman wants you in jail, all she needs to do is call 911 or just yell out that u want to rape her. and with that accusation, be it true or a mere set up that these brainless tramps want to accuse you with, it will take a whole lot of time n money, n don’t forget the media propaganda publicity, to come out clean. i know a guy who met this chick at the black chick at the club, and the chick even gave him head in the car, but the guy refused to take the bitch to his home, n insisted on going to a lodge. So an arguement ensued n the bitch really wanted to find out where this jamaa lived coz he was whoopin an X5, and with that, the bitch stormed out of the car and immmediately called 911. che cops were there in a flash, and all she had to say was that the dude grabbed her by force and tried to rape her . the guy was labelled a rapist in the press, mugshot, and arrested. hitherto, the guy is still battling the courtcase with the lawyers, and his name tarnished forever. man, honestly, if a woman does that to me, kamba kwa shingo yake ndio msema-kweli .. if not, hire a hitman, and its a wrap ..!

    but m sorry for eric, coz if u look at the different versions of his story on the internet, you can immediately see that this is a set up, not unless umejaa matope kwa kichwa ..

    • jemmo said

      Hapo umebinja point mzeia!Guys if the worst scenerio comes just Jerk off coz it wont cost you anything.This is a women country my brothers.

    • nicenice said

      yeah I like you comment bro… guys need to wake up now…. why involve yaself with these stuff like this get yourself a good girl and if they threaten to call 911 on you just move on … cute ones are not yet born and tay zipped up 24/7 sabuni bwana is about 3$

  19. nicenice said

    the version of that story is just so unreal…. that black girl who reported it maybe wanted some and never got any… shame on her?? i do not know this wanjiru guy but sounds so untrue……………………. someone out there wants some money given for free as the $ is the evil of this country

    • leo said

      The name say it all. Eric wanjiku. If he had a father he would be wiser.That biatch with no name took advantage of this fatherless child.

  20. leo said

    ERICOO need to counter sue for beingrapped by thet BIACH.

    • Jemmo said

      Surely my brothers this biatch as i heard the story gave this guy a head in her car..From what i know this is something that you cant force a bitch to do..She felt ashamed when she was spotted having sex in her car coz this is just a small town with majority of white pple.Poor boy now is mugshotted,his name will tanish for along time..Seriously brothers like i said now,the worst case scenerio is to Jerk off…Sabuni ni dola mbili pekee,lotion pia ziko cheap whichever way that can help us.Stay away from evil Bitches..

      • leo said

        Jemmo! those 2 biatches were fighting for thet poor guy. One got jerous and called 911. The other biatch took off running to avoid a slap in the face. A beatch can screw you good. One bitch against onother beatch.

      • Jemmo said

        Such a pity!!

  21. leo said

    Funny beatches.So funny.They even escort you to your vehicle. Toy with you and then run away to avoid a slap from the other biach.
