Man accused of assault at Fox Run Apartments will appear in court

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – A man is facing seven counts after he allegedly assaulted a woman at Fox Run Apartments earlier in June.

According to an arrest citation, Wendell Clay, 42, allegedly entered an apartment and raped a woman by pointing a gun at her.

During the initial interview, Clay said he didn’t know who the woman was, but later said it was consensual despite not knowing her name at the time.

The victim’s boyfriend was sleeping next to her when he woke up with a gun pointed at him during the rape, according to the citation. Clay allegedly told the boyfriend to do nothing before entering the living room and subjecting a juvenile victim to sexual behavior at gunpoint.

The citation claims that the family then located Clay and pursued him before Clay shot another minor and adult.

According to the citation, the firearm was located and confirmed stolen.

Clay was convicted of a felony in 2012 in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

Clay faces seven counts, including rape, burglary, sexual abuse, wanton endangerment, unlawful imprisonment, receiving stolen property (firearm) and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

His arraignment is at 1 p.m. Monday.
