SKYWAYJune 6, 2015

Acting on a 911 call from a Washington’s Most Wanted viewer, King County Sheriff’s deputies arrested accused child molester Darshay Mayo Tuesday night in Skyway following a foot chase.  He was spotted at the Taylor Creek Apartments on S 116th Pl.

“As he ran from deputies, he was throwing unknown items out of his pockets and then at the end he tried to get into a vehicle that was driving by. Thankfully the door was locked and he was unable to get inside,” said Sgt. Ryan Abbott with the King County Sheriff’s Office.  Mayo was booked into the King County jail and is being held without bail.

He is WMW Capture #996 thanks to tips from our viewers.

WANTED IN SEATTLE —
Darshay Mayo, a.k.a: ‘Finesse-X,’ or ‘X-Finesse’ is a convicted sex offender who is now accused of raping a 12-year-old girl. The girl was in tears when she told Seattle Police about what happened.

Mayo was already wanted in Pierce County for failing to register as a Level II sex offender, after he was convicted of attempted rape in 2015.

“We have a 12 year old rape victim by a guy that has been arrested 37 times, 18 convictions,” said Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound. “He’s been armed. He’s dangerous. He resists arrest. What else do you need to know about this guy, except, let us know where he’s at.”

Detectives say Mayo returned to the apartment three days after the rape and threatened to hurt the girl if she told anyone. When her mother saw him, police say he jumped out a window and took off.

He’s 22-years-old, 6’5″ and weighs 180 pounds.

Detectives think he could be in Seatac, Renton Auburn or Seattle.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for any information that leads to his arrest. It is anonymous, so if you know where Seattle Police can find him, submit an anonymous tip by downloading and using the P3 Tips App on your phone or you call 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
