Crimes Nearby: New York City Man Accused of Rape in East Hampton

The following information was supplied by the  East End and Suffolk County police departments. A criminal charge is only an accusation and does not indicate guilt.


• A New York City man was arrested Tuesday on a rape charge after police said they were called to a disturbance at his East Hampton house.

East Hampton Town Police Detective Lt. Chris Anderson said Jason Lee, 37, stands charged with first-degree rape, a felony. A 20-year-old woman accused him of forcing her to have sex with him at his house on Clover Leaf Lane.

Lee retained Sag Harbor attorney Edward Burke Jr. who said, "My client is adamant that this did not occur."


• Suffolk County Crime Stoppers and identity theft detectives are asking for the public’s help in finding the person responsible for using a victim’s debit card to go shopping in Riverhead.

Police said a man went into a Target, located at 1150 Old Country Road, a Walgreen’s, located on 1196 Old Country Road and a Kmart, located at 605 Old Country Road, and made several purchases using a victim’s debit card information on April 24.
