Eau Claire man accused of strangling and raping woman


Eau Claire County (WQOW) - An Eau Claire man is accused of strangling and repeatedly raping a woman, then threatening her life if she told anyone.

The woman says she was supposed to meet Ryan Lee in the lounge of an Eau Claire hotel, then go out to dinner. But he wanted to go to her room and order pizza instead. She says Lee started choking her and sexually assaulted her five times during the course of the night. The woman says he ordered her to take a shower, then went into her purse and looked at her driver's license and pictures of her kids. He then allegedly told her he knew where she lived and what her children looked like, and would kill her if she told anyone about the attacks.

When police questioned Lee, he said the encounters were consensual. He faces six felony charges.
