Chief Chuck Hasty said a female victim sustained minor injuries after she was allegedly assaulted Tuesday.
In a statement Hasty said Officer J. DeSare arrested and charged James Matthew Cain, 40, of Roanoke Rapids, on outstanding warrants for kidnapping, assault on a female and communicating threats.
Cain was jailed without opportunity for bond and has a January 3 court date.
The charges stem from DeSare’s investigation into a Tuesday report by the victim in which she claimed Cain allegedly assaulted her, made threats and would not allow her to leave the residence.
Lieutenant J. Baggett and Sergeant D. Jenkins assisted with the Wednesday arrest.
Public’s help needed
Lieutenant Charles Vaught reported police are seeking the public’s help in identifying two people who allegedly stole several gaming consoles from Walmart on November 4 shortly before midnight.
