Fort Bragg Soldier Accused of Rape

Posted March 11, 2007

— Fort Bragg officials have confirmed a soldier is accused of committing a series of rapes.

Spc. Menkaura Moss, 21, is is being held by military police in connection with attacks on three women, officials said.

Moss has been charged with two counts each of second-degree rape and second-degree sex offense, three counts each of first-degree burglary and felony larceny, four counts of credit card fraud and one count of attempted second-degree rape, said Spring Lake Police Chief A.C. Brown.

The attacks took place in December, January and February at the Southwinds Apartment complex in Spring Lake, where Moss lived, officials said. According to investigators, Moss broke into the women's apartments and attacked them.

The three women's purses were stolen during the attacks, and a debit card inside one of the purses was used to make unauthorized purchases, investigators said.

    The allegedly rape, happened off post, at apartments in Spring Lake, so why does the report by WRAL just have to say FT BRAGG SOLDIER, do you ever hear of local plumber, local pizza man, local cook? Sounds like the reporter is a little biased toward the military...I know, I know...global warming, Post traumatic stress Disorder...must be Bush's fault...Remember, this young man IS Innocent until proven guilty...

    If they find this guy guilty, those victims can rest assured that the military takes justice very seriously. He will get what his coming to him, guilty or innocent.

    One last time folks: accusation does not equal guilt. Give the system a chance or there is no system for you.
