Lake Twp. police hunt for suspect in rape, assault of Toledo woman

Lake Township police are looking for Michael Lee Jackson, 34, who is charged with rape, kidnapping, felonious assault, and corrupting another with drugs in connection with an Oct. 18 incident at a motel.

A 27-year-old Toledo woman accepted a ride home from the suspect after a party on Laskey Road. As Jackson started to drive toward Oregon, he allegedly hit her while they were in his vehicle, police said.

The suspect took the woman to Howard Johnson's Motor Lodge, 3555 Hanley Rd., where he raped her and hit her with closed fists about 1 a.m. He forced her to smoke crack cocaine. The victim was treated in St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center.

Anyone with information about Jackson is asked to call the Crime Stopper program at 255-1111.
