Man charged with rape and multiple counts of armed robbery

A man accused of rape during two home invasions faced multiple counts of armed robbery yesterday.

Prosecutors say Anthony McKenzie, 27, of Carmichael Road, raped a 23-year-old woman during a burglary at a home on Marshall Road on January 14.

McKenzie left the scene in a 2014 F-150 truck valued at $35,000 and took a Michael Kors watch and two pairs of tennis shoes, prosecutors say.

On February 4, McKenzie allegedly raped a 45-year-old woman during a burglary at her home in Coral Harbor.

McKenzie is accused of forcing his victim to withdraw $4,500 from her bank account and robbing her of jewelry and TVs.

McKenzie is accused of robbing a woman of $2,200 cash, a 2008 beige mini Cooper and a black Mercedes Benz on December 23, 2019.

He is also accused of robbing Aliv Prince Charles Drive of $28,544 on January 3.

He was not required to enter pleas to those charges and was denied bail.

Those matters were adjourned to April 20 for presentation of voluntary bills of indictments.

McKenzie, however, pleaded guilty to receiving an 18 karat Rolex Pearlmaster watch taken during the smash-and-grab raid at the Rolex store in Atlantis.

He returns to court today for sentencing in that case.
