RALEIGH — A Raleigh man is accused of beating a handicapped person with a pistol, threatening to kill the person and engaging in a sexual offense with the person, according to arrest warrants.
Jesse Leenzo Cedeno, 31, is accused of throwing the person to the floor, repeatedly striking him or her in the head with a black semi-automatic pistol, and threatening to kill the reported victim, an arrest warrant states. The assault occurred on Oct. 31, according to an arrest warrant.
Cedeno also is accused of engaging in an undisclosed felony sex act with the person on Oct. 5 and 6, according to an arrest warrant.
