Alvin Henry, a 30-year-old man from Trinidad and Tobago who raced for his country at the Sydney Olympics, has been arrested for being a serial rapist in the outer boroughs of New York City.

Henry has confessed to raping four women and a teenage girl during a four-year period after stalking them in the city's parks, authorities said… Henry attacked three women in Baisley Park and Roy Wilkins Park in Queens and two others in Prospect Park, including a 15-year-old girl in April…

Brian Lewis, secretary general of the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee, confirmed the man was the same Alvin Henry who had run for Trinidad and Tobago. "He stopped running a couple of years ago," Lewis said. "He just dropped off the scene."

You know how it is.  One day you're hanging out with the Olympic athlete scene, then you start to drift apart a little, then you stop sending Christmas cards, then you get a taste for rape.  Next thing you know, you're fully entrenched in the rapist scene.  Just different crowds.  It happens.

(NOTE: With Leather would like to reiterate its anti-rape stance, and congratulate the NYPD on its fine work. More in-depth story about the arrest here.)
