RENTON, Wash. -- Renton police urgently want to find a suspect accused of raping a local barista. Detectives say Shad Johnson waited for the woman to open at a drive through coffee stand before attacking her.

Renton police say Johnson knew the victim and she was not a stranger.

Johnson has an extensive criminal history and is currently on federal probation. There is a federal warrant issued for his arrest as well as a $300,000.00 nationwide warrant for Rape 1, Burglary 1 and Assault 2.

Authorities say he may be living in his truck (similar to the one pictured above) which is a red 2004 Ford F-150 pickup with Washington plate C65064A or he could be staying with friends.

Johnson is known to be a frequent gambler. He has many ties in the Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho area and in Spokane. Detectives think he could be headed to California or still be in the Renton area.

Johnson is 6’1” and weighs 200 pounds.
