WILMINGTON -- Police continue to search for a Wilmington man wanted for rape and kidnapping. He is Omar Cortez Sharpe. In the early morning hours of June 16, a 28-year-old woman says she was kidnapped from the "Shop and Go" in the 1600 block of Market Street and sexually assaulted. The fact that no one has been arrested for the crime is worrisome to some downtown residents. Ellen Kiernan is worried about Market Street crime. She said, "I know that our neighborhood has made an effort to have the patrol in our area step up, but I'm very concerned to know that a women's who's 28 years old was abducted within blocks of where i both live and work." If you have any information on Sharpe's whereabouts call the WPD at 343-3645.
