Man is indicted
in sex assaults
The suspect allegedly kidnapped and
attacked women after his release from prison
A 36-year-old man was indicted last week on charges of sexually assaulting and kidnapping four women and impersonating a police officer over four months following his release from prison in February for beating and sexually assaulting a prostitute 10 years ago.
An Oahu grand jury indicted Michael Lee Carter Oct. 6 on four counts of first-degree sexual assault; four counts of third-degree sexual assault; three counts of second-degree impersonating a police officer; one of first-degree attempted sexual assault; and one of kidnapping.
Carter already faces three other charges -- first- and third-degree sexual assault and second-degree impersonation of a police officer that were handed down by a grand jury on Sept. 21 -- for allegedly raping a downtown prostitute March 21.
The victim in the March 21 assault recognized Carter in downtown Honolulu on Sept. 15, and he was arrested, police said.
The 13 charges in the recent indictment allege that:
>> On March 19, Carter raped and fondled another woman, and impersonated a police officer.
>> On April 2, Carter raped and fondled a downtown prostitute while impersonating a police officer.
>> On May 27, Carter kidnapped and attempted to sexually assault a third woman.
>> On Aug. 21, he raped a fourth woman and impersonated a police officer.
