    On Jan. 13, 2010, Londrea Raymond was arraigned for a misdemeanor charge for possession of a handcuffs key while under detention

    A Tierrasanta man accused of sexually assaulting and robbing one woman and robbing another -- both at gunpoint -- was arraigned Thursday with an added misdemeanor for possession of a handcuff's key while under detention.

    The judge set bail at $1.5 million for Londrea Raymond, 20, who was allegedly caught with the generic key on Nov. 29. Raymond pleaded not guilty.

    Prosecutor Lucille Weismantel could not release additional details on the misdemeanor case due to court constraints.

    Raymond, whose accused crimes will be tried together, was apprehended last February the same night he allegedly sexually assaulted a woman inside her Grantville apartment.

    Officers then matched Raymond’s appearance with an unknown suspect who less than two months earlier allegedly robbed a woman living in the same complex while she was entering her car. The woman later selected Raymond as her assailant out of a police lineup.

    Along with the misdemeanor, Raymond faces six felony charges that carry a prison sentence longer than 88 years to life if convinced. Two charges are for forced oral copulation with a special accusation, two are for robbery, one is for burglary and another is for rape by force.
