DA’s Office Secures Conviction for 2020 LOVE Park Rape

PHILADELPHIA (January 23, 2023) – The District Attorney’s Office on Monday secured the conviction of a Philadelphia man arrested for sexually assaulting a woman who was on her way to work in 2020.

In the early morning hours of January 25, 2020, Philadelphia Police responded to bystander reports of a rape of a woman in LOVE Park. Aided by tips from the public, following release of surveillance video images of the defendant fleeing the scene, police arrested Quindell Campbell (DOB: 6/12/1996) on February 5, 2020. Following a collaborative investigation led by the PPD Special Victims Unit, SEPTA Police, and the FBI, Campbell was charged by the DA’s Office with rape and related offenses and has been held in custody since his apprehension.

Quindell Campbell on Monday pleaded guilty to Rape by Forcible Compulsion, Aggravated Assault, Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse by Forcible Compulsion, Indecent Assault by Forcible Compulsion, Recklessly Endangering Another Person, and Aggravated Indecent Assault by Forcible Compulsion. Campbell is scheduled to be sentenced by the Hon. Charles Ehrlich on June 1, 2023.

District Attorney Larry Krasner praised the collaborative work of local law enforcement — in particular, SVU Detectives Thomas Price and Eddie Enriquez, as well as FBI Special Agents Dan Johns and Bill Shute — with Family Violence and Sexual Assault Unit prosecutors for ensuring Campbell is held accountable for his crimes.

“I am grateful and relieved that the survivor of this terrifying crime, committed just before the pandemic slowed many criminal legal processes to a crawl, is today receiving justice. Family Violence and Sexual Assault ADAs Asheeka Desai and Kayla Mullen, along with our Victim/Witness Services team, are to be commended for managing all aspects of this prosecution including witness contacts capably and with deep empathy,” DA Krasner said. “My office continues to work closely with our partners in law enforcement and local and federal government to offer resources and supports so that the criminal legal process does not impose additional traumas and costs on survivors of sexual violence.”

DA Krasner added, “Women and girls deserve freedom – to walk to work, to go to school, and to pursue their passions – without fear of harassment, abuse, or violence. We have much work to do, as institutions and as society, to erase and dismantle the social and material costs imposed on survivors of rape and sexual assault.”

Survivors of sexual violence are urged to contact the WOAR Philadelphia Center Against Sexual Violence 24-hour hotline at 215-985-3333 for support, services, and assistance in reporting incidents to law enforcement.
