Florida Man Arrested After Kidnapping and Raping DoorDash Driver then Shooting at Her Family!


A young Florida woman, and DoorDasher, is now safe, but understandably shaken, after being abducted while working.


The woman says that on the evening of the 18th that she was making a delivery and was abducted at gunpoint by 38-year-old Joseph Killins.


The victim says that she arrived just after 11:00 p.m. on April 18, 2023, to drop off food but Killins was armed with a gun. He then forced the victim, a Hispanic female in her early 20s, back into her car as she was making a DoorDash delivery. Killins forced the victim at gunpoint to drive to the Belara Lakes Apartments, where he then sexually battered her. The victim's family, who had been tracking her phone, arrived and rescued her from the car. Killins responded by firing multiple times, with one shot striking a family member of the victim’s girlfriend, a female in her 20s, before fleeing the scene.


Killins got away but, not for long.


On April 19, Tapma.gov reports, a robbery took place in the 2100 block of Cool Springs Road, inside the Belara Lakes Apartments complex. The suspect, later identified as Killins, threw the victim, a Hispanic female in her early 40’s, to the ground before punching her and stealing her backpack. He was then seen running toward the Haven Waters Edge Apartment complex.


Detectives working each of these cases conferred with each other as they all continued to develop leads, gather evidence, and speak with witnesses. The robbery investigation led them to the Tampa Inn, located at 2901 E. Busch Blvd, where they arrested Killins late Friday night.


During the robbery investigation, items related to the April 18 investigation were recovered. Detectives with the Special Victims Unit were contacted and conducted an interview with Killins, where he disclosed details that were specific to the crimes that occurred on April 18.


Killiins has been charged with Armed Kidnapping, Robbery with a Firearm, Armed Sexual Battery, and Aggravated Battery with a Weapon in the events of April 18. He is charged with Robbery in the events of April 19.
