(Camden, NJ) March 29, 2014 – The perpetrator in a sexual assault that occurred early Thursday at the Wheels of Soul clubhouse was arrested later that day at the clubhouse and charged with multiple offenses after being found in possession of two handguns.
The victim, a 37-year-old Gloucester Township woman, went to the Wheels of Soul clubhouse at 843 Princess Avenue around 2 a.m. Thursday. Inside the clubhouse, the victim was attacked by Antoywayn Lindsey, 34, of Camden. Lindsey hit her several times with a pool stick then forced her into a back room where he held a gun to her head and sexually assaulted her three times over a period of several hours.
After Lindsey fell asleep, the victim was able to escape the clubhouse and make her way to the corner of Haddon Avenue and Pine Street where officers located her just after 7:30 a.m. She was taken to Cooper University Hospital for treatment.
Camden County Police Department officers arrested Lindsey at the Wheels of Soul clubhouse Thursday morning and found him to be in possession of two handguns – a loaded Smith & Wesson 357 Magnum and a loaded Smith & Wesson CTG .38 Special.
Lindsey was charged with a total of 10 offenses: three counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault, two counts of Unlawful Possession of a Weapon and one count each of Kidnapping, Making Terroristic Threats, Aggravated Assault, Certain Persons Not to Have Weapons and Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose.
