From – October 5, 2011

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – Police have arrested the man they say sexually assaulted a Charlotte woman at her home and then kidnapped her and her daughter Tuesday afternoon.

21-year-old Daven Lorenzo Teeter was arrested early Wednesday morning on Vinton Street in west Charlotte, where he lives.

“The brazen nature of this crime, I have no problem using the word ‘predator,'” said  Captain Mike Smathers with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

He said police worked leads throughout the night to make the arrest.

Police were called at 1:13 p.m. Tuesday when police say Teeter broke into a woman’s home in a neighborhood near East WT Harris Road and Idlewild Road. The woman was then sexually assaulted in her home by Teeter, who had a knife, police said.

The woman’s small child was in the home at the time, police say she did not witness the assault and the girl was unharmed. However, she was kidnapped with her mother in the car and taken to the ATM.

The violent crime has neighbor’s in the victim’s neighborhood on high alert.

Even more concerning is the fact that a sexually assault was reported at the same house in April 2010. 

Police have not said if Teeter was able to get money from the account. “He then drove to a bank and attempted to withdraw funds from her account,” police said.

In photos, the suspect appears to be entering information into a drive-up ATM at 12:20 pm.

The woman was released from the car across town near the library on Beatties Ford Road, where she called for help, according to police.  

Teeter has a lengthy arrest record in North Carolina and has been convicted for carrying a concealed weapon, Driving with License Revoked and assault by pointing a gun.
