Sexual battery


A man who has been previously arrested for indecent exposure was arrested last week for allegedly grabbing a victim’s buttocks.

On November 15 at approximately 1:30 p.m., police received a call about an assault in the 1000 block of Roanoke Avenue.

The victim told Sergeant T. Tyler Henry Kareem Franklin, 32, of Roanoke Rapids, came in the business and was looking around.

After speaking to Franklin the victim started walking toward the front of the store.  

Franklin allegedly grabbed the victim on the buttocks twice.

When the victim said she was calling the police, Franklin left the store.

Franklin was spotted by Animal Control Officer P. Wilson on Julian R. Allsbrook Highway and was taken into custody by Lieutenant P. Parks and Officer J. Shelburne.

Franklin was charged by Captain B.L. Martin with sexual battery and assault on a female.

He received a $3,000 bond and December 20 court date.

He has pled guilty at the district court level each time he has been charged.

He has been charged in March and July.


Loud music

On Monday at approximately 1:30 p.m., Officer C. Hagbourne and Master Officer J. Hardy conducted a traffic stop for loud music from a vehicle on Julian R. Allsbrook Highway.  

During the stop an odor of marijuana was coming from inside the vehicle.

A search was conducted and narcotics and paraphernalia were found.

Timothy Earl Green Jr., 20, of Roanoke Rapids, was arrested and charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance.

He received a $5,000 bond and December 6 court date.
