Second suspect sought in rape

A second suspect in last week’s sexual assault at a Washington State University sorority is a known pornographic film star.

Christopher Jack Reid, 25, whose screen name is “Jack Venice,” is being sought by Pullman police on charges of second-degree rape, first-degree burglary, attempted residential burglary, and two counts of residential burglary.

“He came into town and apparently at a bar met this other individual,” 23-year-old Kyle M. Schott, said police spokesman and Pullman Mayor Glenn Johnson.

Detectives believe that was the first time Reid and Schott met, Johnson said.

Police arrested Schott, a WSU student, on Friday. Reid and Schott, 23, allegedly broke into the Pi Beta Phi, Delta Gamma and Kappa Alpha Theta sororities next to the WSU campus early Thursday.

At Kappa Alpha Theta, a woman woke up as two men sexually assaulted her, police say.

Police do not know whether Reid has left Pullman, police Chief Ted Weatherly said.

His last known address is in Los Angeles and he has previously lived in Houston, police said.

“We don’t know his motive,” Weatherly said of Reid. “We don’t know why he was here.”

Reid is 5-foot-8, weighs about 150 pounds, and has green eyes and buzz-cut blond hair, according to a police news release.

He has tattoos of a triangle on the back of his neck and an ammunition belt around his right thigh.

An Internet search returned at least 86 sexually explicit films in which Reid has starred, including the 2007 title “Cougars on the Hunt.”

Meanwhile on Monday, Schott appeared in Whitman County Superior Court, where a judge set his bail at $100,000, the release states.

A court order prohibits him from being within a half-mile of a sorority, fraternity or dormitory, which hampers Schott’s ability to attend classes at WSU.
