Local citizens strolling through the park on a beautiful Sunday morning were admiring the completion of some new projects in the City of Holly Hill, like new sidewalks, repaving of Riverside Dr, and improvements to the park. They were taking pictures of the park and wildlife when they noticed that Daytona AA Sunrise Group from Volusia County Intergroup were defiantly disregarding the no smoking policy. Both Daytona AA and Daytona NA have been refusing to pay rent and running people out of pavilions for years. This group now chooses to disrespect the NO SMOKING rules of the park!
Oh my god-this sick man has been arrested over 50 times! Leroy is a Holly Hill fl resident. What is this man doing on the streets? He has been arrested for multiple drug charges including cocaine possession, robbery, kidnapping, sexual batttery of a helpless person,and prostitution.The woman 28, survived her ordeal with this man. This man has been mandated to attend Daytona Beach Narcotics Anonymous, yet did not help this person.They dont care who they send to Daytona Beach Alcoholics Anonymous either. Even if it is in Sunrise Park, steps from innocent children playing in the playground.
Leroy Lee, 54, was charged with terrorizing or inflicting bodily harm on a kidnap victim and robbery with a deadly weapon.
According to a Holly Hill police report, the 28-year-old woman was walking by Lee’s mobile home on 460 Ridgewood Ave. on Wednesday night when Lee approached her, took her phone, and forced her inside his residence.
Lee, who had known and smoked crack with the woman for six months, began punching her in the head, telling her “you’re not going to leave the house again” before getting a knife and holding it to her throat, the report states.
The struggle ended when the woman was able to break free long enough to kick out a window and flee to a neighbor’s residence, police said.
The woman, bloodied from the attack, was sent to Halifax Health Medical Center for medical treatment.
Lee has a lengthy prison history for convictions of theft and drugs, according to state records.
He was being held Thursday at the Volusia County Branch Jail with no bail allowed.
Looks like Chief Chitwood is on a roll trying to clean up his streets of crime. Many prostitutes do this for drugs. Many prostitutes are sent to Daytona Beach Narcotics Anonymous and Daytona Area AA Intergroup for help. Women and the men who seek their services do not need to be getting help in our playgrounds at Sunrise Park, Hollyland Park and Centennial Park located in Holly Hill Fl .Chief Chitwood does not have Daytona NA AA meeting in his playgrounds!
The women, whose ages ranged from 29 to 50, were arrested and charged Monday with solicitation to commit prostitution, said Daytona Beach police spokesman Jimmie Flynt. Arrests occurred at locations throughout the city, including several intersections along Ridgewood Avenue.
The arrests are part of an initiative to “increase the quality of life” in the city, Flynt said.
One of the women, who refused to give her name but was later identified by authorities as 23-year-old Ciera Hankins, was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of narcotic paraphernalia and resisting arrest without violence.
The others arrested in the sting were identified by authorities as Donna Blankenship, 43, Lisa Wawrzyniak, 40, Matilda Brewer, 46, Laurie Markley, 50, Gina Jennings, 43, Jennifer Lahive, 29, and 35-year-old Wendy Keyes.
The sting comes on the heels of a reverse prostitution roundup held Friday involving an undercover female police officer who posed as a prostitute in the area of north and south Ridgewood Avenue. Six men were arrested including 82-year-old John Miller.
