Police Blotter: Landlord accused of sexual assault

  • Updated Friday, August 31, 2012 10:04 am

A 43-year-old Georgetown landlord is accused of sexually assaulting a 19-year- old tenant inside the home she is renting Aug. 22.
The woman says she was asleep at about 12:30 p.m. when she heard a knock on her door. She looked out the window and saw it was her landlord so she asked him to wait while she got dressed.
Instead of waiting, the landlord opened the door and walked in the residence.
He then grabbed the alleged victim and placed her in a “bear hug,” the report states.
What happened next is redacted from the report but it does state she told him to stop and he reportedly responded by saying, in graphic terms, he wanted to have sex.
What happened after that was also redacted from the report by the Sheriff’s Office.
“He then grabbed a baby wipe and cleaned his hands and threw the wipes in the trash can,” the report states.
The woman provided a written statement detailing what she says happened.
The case is still being investigated and no arrest has been made.

Delivery man robbed

A man from Arizona who was making a delivery in Georgetown early Monday said he saw three men standing in front of KFC on Highmarket Street, so he stopped to ask directions.
He said they answered his question and then one of the men jumped on the side of his truck and pointed a gun at him while demanding money.
The driver said he handed the suspect $200 and a debit card.
The two men then fled down Duke Street.
A little while later, the driver checked his bank account and discovered his debit card had been used at two movie kiosks in the city.
The search for the suspects has been unsuccessful.

Lost liquor leads to arrest

A 26-year-old man was arrested for causing a disturbance Aug. 24.
Deputies were sent to the 900 block of Lucy Grier Road where they saw a woman with her three small children who was visibly upset and was yelling.
She said her husband was intoxicated and turned the electricity off to their mobile  home because he thought she had messed with his bottle of liquor.
The man ignored orders to stop yelling and using profanity. He had thrown all the contents from the kitchen cabinets on the floor while he was searching for his liquor.
“We warned the subject a third time to comply and when he didn’t, he was arrested for breach of peace,” the deputy wrote.

Counterfeit insurance money

A 35-year-old Andrews woman is accused of using a fake $100 bill to pay her monthly State Farm bill.
A worker called police to the agency’s Georgetown office Aug. 24.
The woman says she got the $100 bill at a bank. The insurance worker said no charges will be filed because she feels the woman was being honest and did not know the bill was counterfeit.

Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
