Washburn Univ. Assistant Football Coach arrested in connection with rape

TOPEKA (KSNT) — A Washburn University graduate assistant football coach is out on a $100,000 bond Tuesday night after being arrested in connection with rape and kidnapping.

Jesse Robert Bubke made bond a little before 7:30 p.m. after spending nearly 41 hours in the Shawnee County Jail.

Bubke was booked into the Shawnee County Jail just before 2:30 a.m. on Monday in connection with aggravated battery, kidnapping, criminal restraint and rape.

According to Topeka police just before 5 p.m. on Sunday, the victim came to police headquarters and reported she was kidnapped from the Wild Horse Salon. Then taken to Bubke’s home sometime during the weekend, and was allowed to leave the residence after the assault.

“After that point the investigation resulted in a search warrant at the suspect’s house,” says Lt. Colleen Stuart. “He was located an interviewed and subsequently transported to the department of corrections.”

According to Washburn University’s athletic website, Bubke was a graduate assistant football coach for the Ichabod’s in 2015.

The university no longer lists’ him on the coaching roster for the 2016 season.

University Relations Director Patrick Early tells KSNT News that the university cannot comment at this time. Other than saying the allegations stem from something that happened off campus.

Topeka police say they cannot release any more information at this time.

Bubke’s first court date has not been set.
