D.C. man convicted of stabbing woman
Rashaun I. Gee, 24, of Northeast Washington, was convicted Friday of stabbing a 23-year-old woman 17 times after breaking into her Southeast home as she slept, the U.S. attorney for the District said in announcing the verdict rendered by a D.C. Superior Court jury.
Gee, of the 100 block of 15th Street NE, also attempted to sexually assault the woman in the attack on Oct. 7, 2008. He broke through a kitchen window of a home in the 500 block of 14th Street SE just after midnight, according to a news statement on the case.
Gee stabbed the victim in the stomach and chest as she was on her cellphone to 911, trial testimony showed. She fought Gee off as he stabbed her in the back and chased her through the house before fleeing, prosecutors said. Gee was identified through fingerprints in the kitchen and DNA from a bloody shirt left near the scene, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
Gee is scheduled to be sentenced in November for first-degree burglary while armed, assault with intent to kill while armed, aggravated assault while armed, malicious disfigurement while armed and attempted first-degree sexual abuse while armed, with aggravating circumstances.
