Man charged with robbery, trafficking after assault

RICHMOND — Richmond police on Thursday charged Howard F. Dow, 32, of Lynnwood Drive, with robbery and drug trafficking after an assault on Ballard Drive.

A man reported that around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, he was assaulted in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 500 block of Ballard Drive.

The complainant told police he was turning his vehicle around in the rear parking lot of the complex when four or five men blocked his path and forced him to stop.

They pulled him from the vehicle and assaulted him, punching and kicking him repeatedly and striking him on the head with a hard metal object.

According to an RPD news release, the men also removed the victim’s shoes and pants, which contained his wallet, cell phone and a small amount of cash.

After the men fled on foot, the victim drove home and called police.

When officers arrived, the man was bleeding from his head and face, with swollen areas on his face. He was transported to Baptist Health Richmond for treatment.

According to the release, the man suffered several fractured bones in his face and a broken nose, as well as internal bleeding.

After police interviewed him Thursday, Dow was charged with first-degree robbery and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.

During a search of his residence, police said they found about 22 ounces of marijuana, more than $2,000 in cash and various items of drug paraphernalia. He then was charged with trafficking in marijuana (8oz. to 5 lbs.) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Identity theft

Angela D. Northern, 41, of East Bernstadt was charged Saturday with theft of identity and several traffic violations.

Officers were called to Sonic Drive-in on Big Hill Avenue around 4:40 p.m. to investigate an alcohol-based complaint, the RPD report stated.

When they arrived, police found Northern and asked to see her driver’s license. She claimed not to have her license in her possession and proceeded to identify herself to officers as her sister by giving them her name and personal identification, according to the report.

Officers later determined her identity and found a Madison District Court bench warrant for her arrest on a failure-to-appear charge, the report added. She was booked at the detention center.
