A Lincoln man named Jamal Lewis, 26, was arrested by the R.I. State Police for allegedly targeting young girls for sex for several years. Investigation began when authorities received reports of Lewis targeting “vulnerable, juvenile females for sex and other illegal activity since 2020”. Lewis was charged with four counts of first-degree child molestation, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, altering the identification of a firearm and possession of a prohibited large-capacity feeding device. Court records showed that Lewis was convicted last year of tampering with vehicles and drug possession. Detectives searched Lewis’ Railroad Street home and found a loaded firearm with a high-capacity magazine and altered serial number. Lewis is currently held without bail as a probation violator and is set to return for a violation hearing on April 13.
