Police said Bates was at the center of seemingly random, but connected, crimes that started at 11 p.m. Thursday. He entered a residence at Cambridge Woods Apartments, where four women and four men, all USF students, were celebrating the start of the NFL football season.

Bates tied up the men and sexually assaulted the women, authorities said. He then went to another complex nearby, approached a woman sitting on her porch and forced her inside her apartment at gunpoint, investigators said.

He told the woman he was going to rape her, but she began to pray, Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor said. The woman prayed for Bates and with him, Castor said, and that unexpected act made Bates change his mind.

He left the woman unharmed but walked to The Oaks apartments, across the street from Cambridge Woods, where he barged into a party of about 25 people and threatened to shoot them. He forced the group into a bedroom and fired at least one round into the floor before leaving.

Claudia Seijo, a Hillsborough Community College student, posted on her Facebook page that the group was celebrating her birthday when Bates walked into the apartment.

“I got held at gunpoint inside my apartment with all my friends,” Seijo wrote. “Now all the cops are over here. Gun shot went off in the room with all of us. It was crazy. Worst birthday ever.”

Clarke, the USF sophomore, and his friend, Caitlyn Nugent, said they were shocked when they learned of the scope of Bates’ crimes and how it all came to an end in a shootout on U.S. 301



  1. We are seeing more and more things like this and it is sad. It is the atmosphere of hate and contempt for people of different colors and was brought to you by the current administration. People who might not ordinarily have been racist or filled with hate are, and that is contemptible.

  2. It was not the 'worst' birthday ever, you are still alive and unharmed, unlike a lot of people who were harmed on your birthday and did die. May God bless you and help you to realize you can make a difference, like the woman who prayed for her life and his. God will help. This was not the worst birthday but it was not your best either. It was amazing you all survived it.

  3. good he got what he deserved. sick people out there, and ones like that should not be shown any mercy at all. the have no remorse for what they did, so death should be easy for them. innocent animals get put down, so sick people like that should too.

  4. wow I cant believe some of you say its a black problem wtf is wrong with you, its not based on the color, its the person there is way more WHITE murderers in the u.s.a than anywhere. how many serial killers you know that was black, you people like that make just as sick as the ones killing people, your ignorant and there sick… get off the racist shit and grow up see it as it is, not as what you think it is, a black problem wow so freaking stupid…. do your research its the whites that killed people first, its the whites who think we own everything and there is a whole lot more whites killing than blacks.. racist assholes

  5. bull obviously you have the internet, look it up….. its a person actions that cause what they do, not the color of there skin. that's the bull….as you put it there university educated man…..

  6. No we are not seeing more and more of this; it is being brought to light more and more by the conservative media. My great-grandfather was murdered over 100 years ago by his black cook. All races have people who hate some/all other races. The true issue is a lack of morals, love of god issue that is in ALL races. Wonder how many "white" people who continually read this stuff will start filling themselves with hate?

  7. Wrong. Blacks murdered 53.1% of the time and whites 44.6%. These are FBI figures. That's the overall population. Break it down by race and it's through the roof for blacks. Also, black on white crime has skyrocketed. Try paying attention to reality for a change.
