RICHMOND — Police have charged a Short Street man with breaking into another man’s home Aug. 29 and assaulting him in the shower.
Scott B. Slone, 32, was charged with first-degree burglary and fourth-degree assault.
Officers were sent at 9:30 p.m. to an apartment in Smith Village to investigate an assault report, according to an RPD news release.
Officers met with the male resident who said he was in the shower when Slone unexpectedly appeared in the bathroom and began assaulting him.
The victim told police he was struck several times all over his body. Slone fled after the attack, the report stated.
The victim was taken to the Baptist Health Richmond hospital and received stitches to close two lacerations in his head. He also suffered cuts to his legs and bruising to his back and arms, according to the RPD.
The bruising on his back may have come from the use of a weapon, such as a chain, during the assault, the report stated.
A short time later, Slone was found at The Jungle Bar on Heath Street. He was taken to the Madison County Detention Center where he remained Thursday afternoon.
