DELAND, FL – Volusia sheriff’s detectives are searching for a suspect they say is wanted on kidnapping and sexual battery charges in a case that occurred at a DeLand-area motel. According to detectives, LeShawn Thompson, 40, who lives at the Budget Inn at 2801 E. New York Ave., is accused of raping an adult female acquaintance at the motel on Wednesday.

According to authorities, the victim in the case told detectives she was looking for a friend when Thompson entered the room, locked the door behind him and attacked her, pinning her down and sexually battering her.

A Sheriff’s Office investigation led to identification of Thompson, who has an extensive criminal history including 21 felony arrests with 9 convictions and 21 misdemeanor arrests and 9 convictions. In 2011, DeLand police arrested him on a charge of lewd and lascivious molestation after he was caught inappropriately touching a 13-year-old girl.

Thompson also goes by the names “Sean Richardson” and “Sean Feaster.”
