Keys Man Arrested In NC For Alleged Rape Of Teenager

KEY LARGO (CBSMiami) – A Key Largo man was arrested in North Carolina for allegedly raping a teenager and threatening her life on multiple occasions.

U.S. Marshals located Marcus Hammer, 41, early Saturday morning at a hotel in Dunn, North Carolina.  Hammer will be returned to Monroe County to face charges including eight counts of armed sexual battery, possession of material depicting a sexual performance by a child and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Hammer fled the Key Largo area to North Carolina before he could be arrested.

Officials first learned of the abuse when the teenager reported it to a school resource officer.

Hammer is accused of repeatedly threatening the victim and said he would harm her family and friends if she did not comply.
