Neo-Nazi Leader Arrested for Alleged Rape of 13-Year-Old Girl

Las Vegas Metro Police arrested the Nevada state leader of the neo-Nazi National Social­ist Move­ment (NSM), Josh Dav­en­port, 24, on August 11 on charges of kid­nap­ping and rap­ing a 13-year-old girl.  Police inves­ti­gat­ing a miss­ing child report were led to Davenport’s nearby apart­ment, but left when no one answered their knocks. How­ever, mem­bers of the kid­napped girl’s fam­ily sub­se­quently sur­veilled the apart­ment and later in the night allegedly saw the cry­ing girl leav­ing his apart­ment. They called the police again, who returned and arrested Dav­en­port with­out incident.

Accord­ing to police, the vic­tim said she had been sex­u­ally assaulted at gun­point and the sus­pect had threat­ened to kill the girl and her fam­ily. Dav­en­port report­edly told police that he saw the girl hav­ing an argu­ment with another boy, then invited her into his apart­ment for a short time before telling her to leave. He denied kid­nap­ping or hav­ing sex with the vic­tim. A sub­se­quent med­ical exam­i­na­tion found signs of sex­ual trauma on the vic­tim, while a search of Davenport’s apart­ment allegedly found items of the victim’s cloth­ing in a bag in Davenport’s bedroom.

Dav­en­port was charged with four counts of sex­ual assault on a vic­tim under 14, four counts of sex­ual assault with a deadly weapon, lewd­ness with a minor, kid­nap­ping, and bat­tery with intent to com­mit sex­ual assault. He has had a pre­vi­ous his­tory of vio­lence towards women.  In 2010, fol­low­ing an inci­dent with his then-girlfriend, he pleaded guilty to attempt to com­mit bat­tery con­sti­tut­ing domes­tic vio­lence by stran­gu­la­tion. He received a sus­pended 12-month sen­tence and two years of pro­ba­tion. As recently as July 16, Dav­en­port posted to his Face­book pro­file that “Half the time when i see a hot chick i wanna ask her out to din­ner.  And the other half time i just want to see what their heads would look like on a stick.”

Dav­en­port has been an active mem­ber of the neo-Nazi National Social­ist Move­ment since 2007.  He has been the group’s Nevada state leader since 2011. Dur­ing this time, Dav­en­port orga­nized or par­tic­i­pated in numer­ous NSM events in Nevada, Ari­zona and Cal­i­for­nia, includ­ing a num­ber of anti-immigration events, such as a June 2011 NSM protest dubbed “Reclaim the South­west” held out­side a Las Vegas nurs­ery to protest day laborers.

Dav­en­port is heav­ily tat­tooed, with many tat­toos depict­ing occult sub­jects or hate sym­bols.  Among his tat­toos are sev­eral swastikas, the white suprema­cist ver­sion of the Celtic Cross, a Sturmabteilung sym­bol (the Sturmabteilung, or SA, were Hitler’s stormtroop­ers), a 14/88 (a white suprema­cist tat­too com­bin­ing the num­ber 14, which is code for a pop­u­lar white suprema­cist slo­gan, with the num­ber 88, which is code for “Heil Hitler”), SS bolts, the phrase “white power,” a Totenkopf skull, and the SS slo­gan “Meine Ehre Heisst Treue” (“My Honor Is Loy­alty”), among others.

  • Anony­mous

    I hung out with this guy a few times and met him through a friend (now ex friend) This guy is insane and extremely vio­lent. I remem­ber he used to play neo-nazi ral­lies on tv when I was there. Also he knocked up and beat up his girl­friend at the time and I heard about it through my friend. This guy does not deserve to live.

  • Com­man­der Jeff Schoep

    DISASSOCIATION
    WITH FORMER nevada MEMBER

    Com­man­der Jeff Schoep (pro­nounced “SCOOP”) of the National Social­ist Move­ment (NSM – nsm88.org) recently
    expressed dis­may at the alleged crim­i­nal acts of for­mer mem­ber, Josh
    Dav­en­port, a past mem­ber of NSM’s
    Nevada Unit.

    Accord­ing to
    Com­man­der Schoep, because of Davenport’s
    “lack of mutual ‘fit,’ Josh resigned NSM on June 13, 2012. This was ini­tially
    accepted with regret by all.” How­ever, because of fur­ther inter­per­sonal issues com­ing
    under increas­ing scrutiny, Davenport’s
    res­ig­na­tion became con­sid­ered for admin­is­tra­tive dis­missal even before his
    res­ig­na­tion was fully accepted. Accord­ing to Cap­tain Schnei­der, NSM Region
    1 Direc­tor, “Davenport’s
    dis­missal was almost simul­ta­ne­ous to his res­ig­na­tion.” Schnei­der adds that, “Our
    orga­ni­za­tion only endorses actions that are pro-White
    and pro-legal. It is regret­table that
    Mr. Dav­en­port seems to have acted otherwise.”

    Harry Hughes, NSM Region 11 Direc­tor also expressed his regret. “I am greatly
    dis­ap­pointed that some­one with such poten­tial chose to make the deci­sions he
    sup­pos­edly did.”

    The National Social­ist Move­ment in accor­dance with U.S. law believes
    that every­one is inno­cent until proven guilty, and we remain with­out fur­ther
    com­ment on the mat­ter until it is proven or dis­proven in a court of law.

    The National Social­ist Move­ment is the largest pro-White civil rights
    orga­ni­za­tion in Amer­ica.
    It has chap­ters across Amer­ica,
    and affil­i­ates around the world.
