On June 8, a woman called the Twin Peaks station to report she was raped in the Running Springs area, according to a sheriff’s station.

The woman said she met a man, later identified as Bradford, on dating website Plenty of Fish and exchanged phone numbers.

After some texting, authorities say Bradford told the woman he was going to be in her area and wanted to know if she wanted to get together and she agreed.

The two met on June 7, and agreed to drive to Bradford’s home, sheriff’s officials said.

On their way, investigators allege Bradford detoured and took the woman to a secluded turn out in the Running Springs area and raped her.

Instead of taking the woman home, authorities say he left her at a gas station near Highway 330 in Highland.

The victim contacted law enforcement to report the assault.

After investigators identified Bradford, they learned he was a suspect in a rape case from the Victorville area from October 2015.

In the Victorville case, Bradford and that woman also met through Plenty of Fish.
