Massachusetts Sex Offender Charged with Attempted Abduction

Posted on September 30th, 2010 No Comments

A Massachusetts man who served a 12 year sentence for child rape has been charged with trying to abduct a woman.

According to officials with the Wareham Police Department, Lance Porter, who was released from prison 18-months ago, is facing charges of kidnapping, assault and battery, and attempted rape. Police say Porter approached a 36 year-old woman shortly after 10:00 Friday after she left a store, grabbed her, covered her mouth, and attempted to drag her to his truck. The woman screamed, bit her attacker, and broke away, police say.

Porter was arrested later Friday night in his home. Police describe him as a level 3 sex offender, considered the most likely to re-offend. It was not immediately clear if Porter has an attorney. He waived his appearance at an arraignment Monday.
