On May 4, around 9:30 p.m., Mobile Police say Lee robbed a man at gunpoint as he was getting out his vehicle along with his child and girlfriend. Lee took the victim’s money, bank card and cellular phone, then ran from the scene. The victim recognized Lee because he grew up with him.

On June 18, around 10:00 p.m., Lee forced a man into his apartment at gunpoint in an attempt to rob him. Once inside, the victim struggled with Lee and yelled for help. The victim’s friends tried to subdue Lee but he was able to get away.

Mobile Police say his criminal history shows only juvenile records, which are sealed.  They do say Lee should be considered armed and dangerous.
