Police Searching For Two Black Men Who Allegedly Raped White Woman To ‘Teach Her A Lesson’
“We’re going to teach you a lesson about dating a black man and white [women] don’t mean s*** in this town.”
Police officials in Clermont, Florida, are searching for two black males who allegedly kidnapped and raped a white woman to “teach her a lesson” about dating black men, telling her “white [women] don’t mean s*** in this town.”
Justin Akken Fedrick, 27, and Keon Dellshai Gordon, 26, are wanted for the racially-charged rape on June 22. A third man involved in the incident, 32-year-old Rodney Cooper, who stood guard as the victim was violently raped, is already in Clermont Police custody.
According to Orlando Sentinel, the victim was at a home “just hanging out with friends” when Cooper pushed her into a bedroom with Fedrick and Gordon, closed and locked the door, and stood guard so no one else could enter or leave.
According to a police report, the two men told the victim, “We’re going to teach you a lesson about dating a black man and white [women] don’t mean [expletive] in this town.”
She was then violently raped.
The men then warned the victim that she was not to go to the police or they would “make it ten times worse next time,” says the police report.
The battered woman escaped the house, running through neighborhood yards “because she was afraid they would come after her.”
The boyfriend of the victim called the police after receiving a text from the woman around 3 a.m. which said she was “bleeding and limping somewhere in the neighborhood.” Police soon found the woman.
Cooper has been arrested by officers and is currently in Lake County Jail on $50,000 bond.
Arrest warrants have been issued for both Fedrick and Gordon, who have histories of violence and are considered armed and dangerous, according to Clermont Police spokesman Sgt. Shane Strickland.
“Fedrick is about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds with dark hair and eyes. Gordon is about 5 feet 7 inches tall and 140 pounds with dark hair and eyes,” reports Orlando Sentinel. “Those with information about their whereabouts should call Crimeline at 800-423-8477.
