Man charged with assaulting elderly relative

RICHMOND — Police charged John W. Telek, 46, no permanent address, for burglary after he unlawfully entered a relative’s home and assaulted him Wednesday, according to an RPD report.

Officers were dispatched to a residence in the 300 block of Sydney Way at 9:52 p.m. to investigate a reported assault. Upon arrival, officers reported that the front door had been forced open.

The officers learned that Telek had forcibly entered the residence and assaulted the elderly resident, who was a relative, by knocking him down and striking him several times with his fists, according to the report. 

Telek then retrieved a knife from the kitchen and stabbed a kitchen table several times before police arrived. 

Telek was charged with first-degree burglary and fourth-degree assault.

A third arrest made in connection with a theft at Toyota South

Officers were dispatched Tuesday evening to Toyota South in response to a report that a tailgate was being stolen from a new Toyota pickup truck on the sales lot, according to an RPD report.

As officers were responding, they received further information describing the vehicle in which the suspect had fled the scene. 

Officers found the vehicle in the 1200 block of Arlington Drive and identified an apartment that the suspect was believed to have entered, the report stated.

Officers made contact with two men, Roger D. Hays, 26, the resident, and Brandon H. Barnett, 29, Louisville. Officers reported that the stolen Toyota tailgate had been installed on a pickup truck owned by Barnett, which was parked nearby. 

Police say they determined that while removing the tailgate from the vehicle at Toyota South, the thieves had damaged a cable harness for the back-up camera installed in the tailgate. The tailgate was valued at $1,200, and the damage to the harness was estimated to be $1,400.

Hays was charged for theft by unlawful taking(over $500) and first-degree criminal mischief. Barnett was charged for receiving stolen property (over $500).

The investigation also implicated another man, Roger M. Million, 23, Moberly Road, in the theft of the tailgate, according to the report.  A warrant was issued Thursday for his arrest, charging him for theft by unlawful taking (over $500) and first-degree criminal mischief.

Police located Million on Thursday in the 500 block of Ballard Drive, and he was taken into custody without incident.
