SAVANNAH, GA ( September 22, 2012 ) One man has been charged and a second is being sought after a home invasion robbery in which one victim was assaulted and a second injured.
Raynard Lamar Lexie, 20, of a Westlake Avenue address was arrested by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police detectives participating in a saturation of the west Victorian area in response to the call. He has been charged with first degree burglary, false imprisonment and aggravated sodomy. The man who accompanied him still is being sought. No description is available.
The two men forced their way in to a residence when one of the occupants was opening the front door and forced her into a back room. One of the men attempted to force her to perform a sex act before forcing her into a closet.
The men took a camera, three Mac Book laptops and an I-phone 4S before fleeing. As they left, a second occupant of the house was arriving and was knocked to the ground. She was transported to Memorial University Medical Center for treatment of an injury from the fall.
Detectives in the area of Frazier Homes saw two men fitting the clothing descriptions and were able to take Lexie into custody.
Anyone with information on the case or the identity or location of the second suspect is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (273637). Tipsters remain totally anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
