MAN CHARGED WITH SEX CRIMES, KIDNAPPING AFTER STRING OF ASSAULTS AS EARLY AS 2013, WARRANTS SAY. Trey Jerell Frasier faces multiple charges in Oconee County
May 13, 2021
SENECA, S.C. — An Upstate man was arrested Thursday on multiple sexual assault counts involving five separate adult victims, according to deputies.
Trey Jerell Frasier, 27, of Seneca, was booked into the Oconee County Detention Center for a string of charges that include five counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping, first-degree burglary and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
At least two of the sexual assaults happened on a road and two happened at Frasier's home, according to warrants.
Four of the criminal sexual conduct counts and the kidnapping charge stem from an initial investigation into a sexual assault that was reported to the sheriff’s office on April 25, Master Deputy Jimmy Watt said.
Investigators discovered additional victims who had been sexually assaulted by Frasier, Watt said.
According to arrest warrants, one victim was sexually assaulted in November 2018 in an incident in which Frasier was also charged with kidnapping.
Two separate victims reported to investigators that Frasier sexually assaulted them, with one victim reporting a sexual assault that occurred in August 2020 and the other victim reported a sexual assault that occurred sometime between the later summer and fall of 2013, Watt said.
The burglary and weapons charges are related to a separate report filed with the sheriff’s office on May 6, according to Watt.
Arrest warrants stated in that case that Frasier sexually assaulted the victim while possessing a firearm in February 2020. Frasier also broke into the victim’s residence at night, without consent and with the intent to commit a crime, while armed with a deadly weapon, Watt said.
Frasier remains in custody at the Oconee County Detention Center pending a bond hearing.
