Senior Hells Angels member arrested for sex assault

Raymond Michael Foakes, 53, a member of the Hells Angels MC in Santa Rosa was arrested Monday night on suspicion of sexual assault, victim intimidation, stalking and gang participation.

When a 49-year-old Santa Rosa woman learned her husband was about to be stripped of his membership in the club, she met with Foakes to get answers. A meeting was set up after the victim received a phone call about 11 p.m. to meet Foakes at the Hells Angels Clubhouse. Foakes drove to a secluded area and sexually assaulted her, threatening to hurt her husband if she didn’t submit.

Foakes drove back to the Hells Angels Clubhouse after the assault.
Foakes is a past president of the Sonoma County Hells Angels and has a long and violent history. He had formerly served prison sentences for a variety of offenses including from the infamous 'River Run Riot', a confrontation between the Hells Angels and the Mongols in Laughlin, Nevada on April 27, 2002.

Mongol Anthony Barrera, 43, was stabbed to death, and two Hells Angels, Jeramie Bell, 27, and Robert Tumelty, 50, were shot to death. Foakes also has fraud, money laundering and drug possession and distribution convictions.
