Canandaigua, N.Y.—An 18-year-old Canandaigua woman went to the store February 28th to pick up groceries for her mother. After leaving Byrne Dairy, police said she was pursued by 34-year-old David Isaac also of Canandaigua. The young woman has severe mental disabilities according to her mother and police.
“Mr. Isaac pursued her to go to a residence nearby then persuades her to have sex,” said Detective Sergeant Scott Kadien.
After realizing her daughter was away longer than expected, her mother calls police.
“We have interviewed her and we have had medical professionals interview her and she has been deemed unable to consent due to her…mental disability,” said Kadien.
Thursday, Canandaigua Police arrested Isaac and charged him with second degree rape.
The alleged victim’s mother spoke with 13WHAM News about the incident and arrest.
“She's depressed, very depressed, with all the adults talking to her she now realizes how wrong it was,” said the teen’s mother.
Several friends of David Isaac approached 13WHAM News frustrated with his arrest and rape charge.
“He's mentally incompetent himself and nobody is including that anywhere,” said one of Isaac’s friends who wished to remain anonymous.
Police said that Isaac has mental health issues of his own but “no where near,” as extensive as his alleged victim.
He knew the girl had severe mental issues before and after the incident according to police.
