A jury found one of two men accused in a brutal 2012 home invasion of two Savannah College of Art and Design students.

A jury found Raynard Lamar Lexie, 20, of Savannah, guilty of three counts of aggravated assault, kidnapping, aggravated sodomy, burglary and armed robbery.

Police said that on Sept. 21, 2012, a SCAD student returned to her home on Waldburg Street and was assaulted by two gunmen as she went up to her front door. The men forced her into the home and led her into a back bedroom.

The suspects then ransacked the home to find a phone, laptops, a camera and cash.

The student was held in the back bedroom and one of the suspect n sexually assaulted her at gunpoint.

When the suspects were leaving, the victim's roommate was getting home.

They burst through the front door and ran into the roommate. The move resulted in her falling backwards and breaking her leg. A neighbor heard the roommate crying for help and called police.

Lexie was apprehended minutes later at a friend's apartment in Frazier Homes and positively identified by the victim.

Sentencing will take place at a later date.
