Women face charges after naked woman found beaten

Two women face charges of kidnapping and felonious assault and police may be seeking a male suspect after a woman was found Sunday night unconscious, naked and beaten on a Dayton street.

Cassidy D. Lake, 22, and Jennifer Lynn Rice, 40, were arrested Monday and are being held in the Montgomery County Jail.

Lake, of Dayton, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to one count of felonious assault, two counts of kidnapping and one count of rape during her arraignment in Dayton Municipal Court. Lake’s bond was set at $100,000, and she has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Dec. 8.

Rice, of Huber Heights, pleaded not guilty to one count of felonious assault and one count of kidnapping. Her bond also was set at $100,000 and a preliminary hearing was set for Dec. 8.

Police responded to an area near Wheatley Avenue after a 911 caller told a dispatcher that there was a naked woman with a rope tied around her body.

“There’s blood everywhere…I don’t know how she got there, she’s just there,” the caller said. “She’s pleading for someone to help her.”

The 35-year-old victim — who was transported to Miami Valley Hospital — told a Dayton police detective she was driven by Jennifer Rice to a detached garage at 132 Fountain Avenue, according to court documents.

The victim said that in the garage were Lake and “JP." The victim said the man shut the garage door and began to punch her in the head several times and knocked her to the floor.

The male suspect stood above the victim and told Lake and Rice to “make her bleed or you’ll bleed,” according to the affidavit. Court documents say the victim said she was struck in the back of the head with a hard object — possibly a piece of wooden or metal door frame — and that she lost consciousness.

The woman said in the complaint that when she awoke, the man was pouring a thick unknown fluid over her face and body, making it difficult for her to breathe. The man then told Rice and Lake to take off the victim’s clothes and bind her, according to the affidavit.

The victim was found about a third of a mile away from the garage on Fountain Avenue.

The male suspect has a criminal record that includes a conviction for having weapons while under disability for which he received community control. As part of a plea deal, the man had charges dismissed including possession of cocaine, possession of heroin and a drug paraphernalia offense.

A warrant was issued for the man’s arrest on Nov. 28 for violating his probation and court records show the man’s whereabouts have been unknown since Nov. 15.

A court document indicates the man should be arrested and held without bail, saying: “(The suspect) is wanted by police in connection with continued felony activity.”

  • It has been 10 years since a microburst storm caused injuries and damage at the Tulsa Oktoberfest. In fact, over two dozen people were injured at the event. Corporal Mark Shelton worked the festival that night and will be out there this weekend.  He says the strong winds played havoc with the tents. “The wind had enough force to actually lift up and force those very heavy polls off their moorings,” Shelton said.  “They made their way through the crowd.” April Kidwell was also there back in 2007 and she says the situation was scary to say the least. “I just happened to look up and the DJ at the time was thrown off of the DJ booth,” Kidwell said.   Organizers tell us they do have a plan ready, if severe weather strikes tonight.
  • If you plan on going to Tulsa Oktoberfest today it would be a good idea to go as early as possible. National Weather Service Meteorologist David Jankowski says Mother Nature will play ball during the daytime in the Tulsa area. “During the day on Saturday, temperatures are looking like they could get back up into the 70s,” Jankowski said.   We can expect to see cloudy skies and the sun will peak out periodically.  Everything will change later in the day.  The Tulsa area could get severe weather.   “The storms that develop during the late afternoon and evening hours  will have the potential for damaging winds and large hail,” Jankowski said.  “There also looks to be potential for a tornado as well.” KRMG Stormcenter will be ready to go if severe weather moves into the area.
  • A study by Business Insider and Foursquare says the most popular fast-food chain in Oklahoma is Taco Bueno. A press release from Bueno says Business Insider and Foursquare took the total number of visits to each restaurant in various fast-food chains and then divided that by the number of restaurants in the respective chain. The first Taco Bueno was in Texas, but their second restaurant ever was opened right here in Tulsa way back in 1972. There are now 64 locations in Oklahoma. And there are 120 more in Colorado, Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
  • A day after Senate approval of a budget outline for 2018 that authorizes expedited work on a tax reform plan- without the threat of a Senate filibuster – House GOP leaders set the table for a vote next week on the budget measure, instead of engaging in House-Senate negotiations that could take several weeks, as Republicans look to generate more momentum for the first major tax reforms since 1986. Friday afternoon, House GOP leaders signaled their plan to simply accept the budget plan passed 51-49 by the Senate, setting a Tuesday meeting of the House Rules Committee, which sets the ground rules for bills on the floor of the House. “We want Americans to wake up in the new year with a new tax code, one that is simple and fair,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan. “Now it is time to meet this moment and deliver real relief to hardworking people.” Approval of the Senate-passed plan would allow tax-writing committees in both the House and Senate to get to work on the actual details of tax reform; what’s been released so far is an outline, but not the fine print. “This is another important milestone for tax reform, and sets the stage for us to pass major tax cuts that will deliver more jobs and higher wages for hardworking Americans all over the country,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. As for Democrats, some feel like they are being set up by the GOP, predicting that Republicans will unveil their tax reform bill, and then demand a vote on it days later. “I am perfectly willing to negotiate,” said Sen. Clare McCaskill (D-MO). “I can’t do it in a vacuum.” “It doesn’t work that way,” McCaskill told reporters. “Why can’t we have a bill?” When you look back at the 1986 Tax Reform Act – that took months to make its way through the House and Senate, and then a conference committee for final negotiations. Need some weekend reading? Here is the link to the explanation of the 1986 Tax Reform Act – it’s only a little under 1,400 pages. It’s a gentle reminder that if you do ‘real’ tax reform – it is a very complicated endeavor.
  • State Attorney General Mike Hunter sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions one day after Attorney General Sessions was in Oklahoma. “We need to start treating the industry from the top down like the criminal enterprises they are,” said Hunter. Attorney General Hunter said the letter’s intent is to open communications to develop a federal and state partnership to combat the opioid epidemic. “There is clear evidence of these companies spending millions of dollars on lobbyists and fraudulent marketing campaigns in order to get these drugs into communities across the nation.” Hunter says the feds could go after the manufacturers under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).
