SK man allegedly bound, raped teen

A South Kitsap man was arrested last week for allegedly handcuffing a girl to a bed before raping and shaving her, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

David A. Carbary, 54, made his preliminary appearance in Kitsap County Superior Court June 15 on pending charges of kidnapping and child rape in the third degree.

As of Monday, Carbary remained in Kitsap County Jail under $200,000 bail, and was expected to be formally charged yesterday.

According to the probable cause statement, the victim is a 14-year-old girl who lives in the same trailer park as the defendant on the 3300 block of Bielmeier Road. She told deputies she has done housework for him since his girlfriend died.

She told deputies that June 14 she was washing dishes at Carbary’s house when he began yelling at her about charges on the cell phone he had provided for her. She said the defendant had been “drinking a lot lately,” and grabbed her and pulled her into the bedroom.

Once inside, she said he handcuffed her to a bed, undressed her and sexually assaulted her. After fondling her, she said he shaved her groin area with shaving cream and a razor. She said he did not undress and did not force her to have intercourse.

While she was tied up, the victim said Carbary also videotaped her and took pictures of her with what deputies determined was a Polaroid camera. Before releasing her, he said “I’ll kill you if you tell anyone.”

Once the victim returned home and reported the incident to an adult guardian, sheriff’s deputies were notified and responded to the scene.

In court Friday, the prosecutor argued for keeping Carbary’s bail high, stating that “his actions were very alarming, and we have grave concerns about the safety of the victim and other children in the county.”

Defense attorney Jennifer Atwood requested his bail be lowered, describing the defendant as a “16-year county resident in his 50s with no prior criminal history.”

Judge Russell W. Hartman declined, stating, “These allegations are very serious. I’m going to stick with the $200,000 bail amount.”
