Suspect met on Tinder charged with rape, felony assault, unlawful imprisonment & harassment

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. -

Detectives with the Spokane County Sheriff's Office arrested and charged a 35-year-old man with 3rd degree rape, assault, unlawful imprisonment and harassment Monday morning. 

The investigation into Torrey Gambill began back on November 11 when a deputy responded to a report of a rape in the Wandermere area. 

The woman told deputies she met Gambill on Tinder a few weeks prior. She says she was contacted by Gambill and agreed to meet him at a restaurant in north Spokane. The woman says after some conversation and drinks, they decided to go to Gambill's house and that's where the sexual and physical assault happened, according to the woman. 

The woman later told detectives as she left to go to Gambill's she started to notice she was having trouble remembering things. The woman says after watching TV, they began to have consensual sex, but Gambill turned abusive. The woman says Gambill became violent, hit her, and put his hand on her throat. She says she told Gambill to stop but the more she told him to stop, the more abusive he became. 

The woman said she feared for her life during the assault and says she was grabbed by the neck, hit, kicked and punched to the ground. 

"She said Gambill would not let her leave, threatened to kill and maim her, called her profane names, and made derogatory statements about women," according to a released from the Sheriff's Office.  "After about an hour of abuse, she said Gambill let her leave and she went to the hospital and reported the incident."   

Detectives obtained a search warrant for Gambill and his residence, which was served early Monday morning, and Gambill was subsequently arrested.

Gambill was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for charges of Rape 3rd Degree, Assault 3rd Degree, Unlawful Imprisonment and Harassment.
