Hells Angel MC member arrested in Santa Rosa sex assault

Was past president of the Sonoma County, California Chapter

SANTA ROSA, CA ( November 29, 2016) — A Hells Angels MC member will be arraigned in Sonoma County Superior Court Wednesday afternoon for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman and threatening her husband.

Raymond Michael Foakes, 53, of Rohnert Park, called the woman around 11 p.m. Saturday and told her to meet him at the Hells Angels clubhouse off Frazier Avenue in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Crum said.

The woman agreed and Foakes ordered her to drive them in her car to a secluded area off Bennett Valley Road, where he allegedly sexually assaulted her against her will and threatened to harm her husband if she refused, Crum said.

After the alleged assault, Foakes drove the woman’s car back to the Hells Angels’ clubhouse, where he got out of the car and the victim went home, Crum said.

Foakes knows the woman’s husband, who also is associated with the Hells Angels, according to Crum.

The woman reported the assault to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, which obtained a search warrant for Foakes’ home in Rohnert Park. The sheriff’s SWAT unit went to the house around 6:30 p.m. Monday but Foakes was not home, Crum said.

Foakes was later arrested at a meeting he was attending off Airway Drive in Santa Rosa, Crum said.

Foakes was booked into Sonoma County Jail under $1 million bail on suspicion of sexual assault, victim intimidation, stalking and gang participation, Crum said.

Foakes was a past president of the Sonoma County Hells Angels. He had formerly served prison sentences for a variety of offenses ranging from a 2002 brawl with a rival motorcycle club at a casino in southern Nevada in which three people died, to fraud and money laundering.

Federal agents had previously raided the Santa Rosa Hells Angels headquarters in 2006 to search for him during a Bay Area-wide FBI manhunt before he turned himself in to face methamphetamine possession and distribution charges
