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.
Walker Lane man charged with making meth
Police charged Cody Shelton, 18, Walker Lane, on Saturday with manufacturing methamphetamine following a traffic stop.
Officers observed a suspicious vehicle Aug. 30 at 11 p.m. on Rice Court, according to an RPD report. The vehicle was stopped on the side of the road, and the officer reported seeing a man approach the vehicle, place an item in the back seat and then walk away.
The vehicle departed but was stopped shortly afterward by officers.
Shelton was in the rear seat of the vehicle along with items commonly used for manufacturing methamphetamine, according to the report.
Those included: lithium batteries, plastic bags, coffee filters, ammonium nitrate, Coleman fuel, pseudoephedrine and suspected iodine.
Woman received drug charges after warrants served
Police charged Amy L. Taylor, age 35, Norwood Drive, on Wednesday with drug offenses following her arrest on outstanding warrants.
RPD bike patrol officers took Taylor into custody at her residence on Norwood Drive at 6:16 p.m. on the strength of two outstanding arrest warrants. These included:
• A warrant issued July 10 charging Taylor with making false statements to receive benefits after a complaint was filed alleging she fraudulently received $11,754.92 in Medicaid and SNAP benefits between January 2011 and July 2012.
• A warrant issued Aug. 26 charging Taylor with fraudulent use of a credit card (over $500) after a complaint was filed alleging she fraudulently used someone else’s credit card to purchase $1,864.24 worth of merchandise July 23 from Walmart.
Upon taking Taylor into custody, officers reported seeing a white powdery substance and a spoon in her bedroom and subsequently recovered two syringes and a Lortab pill from her purse.
Taylor was charged with second-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Another person at the residence, Candina D. Isaacs, a.k.a. Candina D. Minix, 37, Oldham Avenue, was also arrested at the scene on the strength of a bench warrant charging her with a probation violation in connection with a felony conviction in the Fayette Circuit Court in October 2012 for flagrant nonsupport and first-degree bail jumping. She had been sentenced to two years imprisonment.
The sentence was suspended, and Isaacs was placed on probation for five years. On May 2, a warrant was issued for her arrest for violating the conditions of probation.
Both women were lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
