Man Faces Long List Of Charges After Arrest For Allegedly Assaulting Infant

A Redding man with a history of violent crimes who was arrested last week after allegedly assaulting a newborn infant faces a wide variety of charges following his arraignment on Friday. The RPD was called to Loma Street very early Thursday morning after 30-year-old Rakim Leedy had reportedly pointed a gun at a man, threatening to kill him, then assaulted the man’s 5-week-old baby before fleeing the area. Leedy was located later during a traffic stop, allegedly in possession of multiple guns and drugs. In 2017 Leedy was convicted of shooting at a person from a moving car and sentenced to 7 years in prison. He was released after serving 3 years and is still on parole. This was his third arrest since his release. On Friday Leedy appeared in court to hear what he’s charged with: attempted kidnapping of a child, assault with a firearm, first degree residential burglary, two counts of criminal threats, dissuading a witness by violence, possession of guns, assault weapons and ammunition by a convicted felon, possession for sale of Oxycontin, Heroin, MDMA, having a concealed gun in a vehicle, and other charges and enhancements. Leedy returns to court June 22nd. He’s being held without bail.
