A Macclenny man wanted for questioning in the stabbing of his cousin on April 9 is now charged with the earlier rape of a woman in a wooded area of the south city.
Sherric Lee, 23, is the subject of a warrant issued by the sheriff’s department for sexual battery on the 40-year-old victim the night of April 8.
The woman told Investigator Chris Volz she initially agreed to have sex with Mr. Lee, then changed her mind. He then allegedly forced himself on her, and possibly held a knife to her leg.
The victim said her assailant spent the night with her and threatened bodily harm if she told anyone. She later went to the home of an acquaintance, who notified both police and the state attorney’s office.
The incident took place off MLK Dr. near Lowder St.
Mr. Lee has been at large since the early morning of April 9 when police found his cousin Alonzo McQueen, 48, bleeding from a deep stab wound in the bedroom of a residence on McIver St.
Another occupant of the address told police the suspect was with Mr. McQueen at the time, and left on foot after alleging the victim rolled over on the knife while in bed.
Mr. Lee has a criminal past and is also sought for battery on a girlfriend several weeks ago.
