Warrant: Man used Internet threat to get sex, shoes

Posted September 1, 2013

— A Raleigh man used the threat of publishing explicit photographs to convince his female victim to give him sexual favors and high-end sneakers, police said.

Ronald Stacey Rhodes, 26, of Lot 3 1300 Farm Road, faces charges of kidnapping, extortion, attempted second-degree rape, assault and more. He was being held Sunday night on $750,000 bond.

Raleigh police said Rhodes is a suspect in a similar case in Mecklenberg County, where he also threatened to publish explicit photos of a woman if she didn't do what he asked.

    The judge needs to give this man 50 years so that he will be off the streets and make it safer for others.
