Auburn police charged Devonte Rashaud Hunter, 22, with first-degree attempted sodomy and second-degree possession of marijuana early Sunday morning, according to a release from the Auburn Police Divison.
At around 2 a.m. on Sunday, officers responded to a call at a bar in the 100 block of East Magnolia Avenue. Police arrived to find employees of the bar detaining Hunter.
A 20-year-old female patron reported that Hunter forced her into a restroom and threatened her with a gun in an attempt to force her to perform a sexual act.
The woman fled and notified security at the bar, and they detained Hunter until police arrived. She was not injured during the alleged incident.
Police say they also found marijuana on Hunter that resulted in an additional charge.
Hunter was transported to the Lee County Jail following his arrest, where he is being held on a $15,000 bond.
