    AK - Clifford Lee, 35, charged in series of rapes, Anchorage, 2001-2014


    "Police said between late June and late July five women reported being sexually assaulted by an Asian man after accepting a ride. The man took them to isolated parts of town and raped them.

    Interviews with one of the victims helped them identify Lee as a suspect, police said. Police took Lee into custody late July 31 and arrested him the following day.

    On Tuesday, police said they suspected there may be more victims.

    "I do think there has been one, maybe two, more who are thinking of coming forward," Henry said.

    Henry said he believes Lee lived in Washington state for an undetermined time, and once police learn more about that residency, investigators will reach out to authorities there."

    "JUNEAU, Alaska - A 35-year-old Anchorage man has been charged with raping five women and police said on Wednesday they expect more victims to come forward.

    Clifford K. Lee remains in an Anchorage jail in lieu of $750,000 bail plus other conditions connected to any potential release. He faces 10 felony sexual assault charges connected to the five alleged assaults, according to online court records.

    "These were random victims," said Anchorage Police Lieutenant Anthony Henry. "He saw an opportunity and he seized that opportunity."

    Henry declined to say what the common thread was among the five assaults or offer details of the charges.

    But he said Lee is accused of using or threatening to use a stun gun against three victims, and that's what triggered suspicions of a serial rapist".

    "According to information released Tuesday, Lee preyed on "vulnerable women who walked alone, were intoxicated and were primarily in the Midtown to downtown areas of Anchorage." Police said that after the women got into Lee's 2001 black Chevrolet Tahoe, he would drive to unspecified locations in South Anchorage, assault them, and frequently threatened to kill them, occasionally using a recently purchased stun gun to get his victims to comply with his demands.

    Though alcohol seems to have been a factor in these cases, Henry said, intoxication isn't the only thing that makes a woman "vulnerable."

    "When we talk about vulnerable women, a lot of times women are vulnerable just by the nature of being out and alone," said Henry.

    What Henry said is unique and "out of the norm" in the case of Lee is the fact that none of the female victims seemed to have known their attacker, describing each of the assaults as "chance encounters." Henry said sexual assault victims are typically familiar with their attackers."

    From August:


    Clifford Lee, 37, pleaded guilty Friday to two counts of first-degree sexual assault, but his agreement with state prosecutors required him to admit to raping eight women in Anchorage over the course of about 13 years.

    The Department of Law announced the plea agreement Monday. Prosecutors said Lee faces about 20 to 35 years in prison for each of the two charges. Lee originally faced nine charges.
