PULLMAN, Wash. - 25-year-old Christopher Jack Reid, suspected in the rape attempt of a WSU student last week, surrendered to Pullman Police Wednesday. During his first appearance at the Whitman County Courthouse his bail was set at $200k and he said he would submit to a DNA test.

Reid had previously told police he was coming back to Pullman to surrender to authorities so he ccould clear his name. Reid met his attorney Chris A. Bugbee at a motel parking lot in Pullman, where he was taken the Pullman police station around 2:00 p.m. Later he will be taken to the Whitman County Jail.

In a statement from Reid's lawyer, the attorney said this:

 "Because of the ongoing nature of this criminal action, we are limited to providing the following statement:

Mr. Reid maintains that he is innocent of any and all criminal charges. We are confident that when this matter is concluded he will be absolved of all the accusation against him.

The public and the media are reminded that Mr. Reid is presumed innocent until proven guilty by a jury of his peers. In that light, while this matter is pending we ask that the public and the media respect his privacy."

The Whitman County Superior Court Monday night issued an arrest warrant for the 25-year-old man wanted in connection with the sexual assault of a woman at a Washington State University sorority.

The warrant was issued for Christopher Jack Reid also known as "Jack Venice"  Police say Reid was last known to live in the Los Angeles area and had previously lived in Houston, Texas.

Reid is 5 foot 8 inches tall, 150 pounds, has green eyes and blond hair with a buzz cut.  He has a tattoo of a solid triangle on the back of his neck and also a tattoo displaying an ammunition belt around his right thigh.

According to city of Pullman officials, Reid works in the adult entertainment business as a performer.

Reid faces charges of rape in the second degree, burglary in the first degree, two counts of residential burglary and one count of attempted burglary.  All of the counts are felony charges.  Bond for the arrest warrant was set at $200,000.
