Suspected Serial Rideshare Rapist Faces Life In Prison


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A Rhode Island man is facing life in prison for allegedly posing as a ride share driver and kidnapping and raping several women around Boston.

According to the Suffolk County Grand Jury indictment, 39-year-old Alvin Campbell allegedly assaulted seven women between 2017 and 2019. In six of the indicted offenses, Campbell allegedly posed as a ride share driver "in order to target women in the area of bars or other locations."

In two incidents, District Attorney Rachel Rollins' office said the victims believed that Campbell was a bouncer at a Boston establishment, and most of the assaults occurred inside Campbell’s vehicle.

"He is accused of assaulting two women in their own apartment after he drove them to the location," said the DA's office. "He is charged with filming each of the victims, who were unconscious, in a state of undress. In five of the assaults, he allegedly filmed the victims as he raped them."

Campbell, of Cumberland, R.I., is facing two counts of kidnapping, two counts of aggravated rape, five counts of rape, two counts of indecent assault and battery, one count of assault with intent to rape, and eight counts of filming an unsuspecting person in the nude.

He was previously charged in connection with the offenses in the Central, Roxbury, and South Boston divisions of Boston Municipal Court. The indictments this week mean all Campbell's pending Suffolk County cases have been moved to Suffolk Superior Court.
