MARTINEZ — The 17-year-old boy who was arrested after allegedly kidnapping and raping a Domino’s Pizza delivery driver Sunday morning will be charged as an adult, the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s office said on Tuesday.
Darrion Earl Miles, Jr. will be arraigned in Martinez on Wednesday.
According to police, the attack happened at about 11:20 a.m. as the victim was delivering a pizza at a residence on Blue Bell Circle in Antioch.
The victim told police that she had exited her car when the suspect approached her and forced her back into her vehicle at gunpoint.
The teen ordered her to drive to an undisclosed location a few blocks away where he proceeded to rape the victim, police said. After the attack, the suspect forced the woman to drive him back to the Bluebell Circle residence, robbed the woman, then ran into the home.
Police arrested the boy at the residence.
Miles is facing eight felony charges including kidnap for the purpose of committing rape or sexual assault, forcible oral copulation, and making terrorist threats.
Domino’s spokesman Tim McIntyre said in a statement Monday that the company is working with the local franchise owner to provide the victim with anything she needs.
“It is unthinkable that something like this could happen to an innocent woman, simply trying to earn a living,” McIntyre said. “We are grateful for the Antioch Police Department’s swift action and we hope the person who committed this heinous crime is prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law.”
