Richmond police Saturday charged Jerrold A. Brannon, 43, of Cimarron Road, with second-degree assault after officers responded to the report of an attack that led to a man being sent to the hospital, according to an RPD news release.
About 1 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 600 block of Powderhorn Road. Upon arrival they met with the victim, who said Brannon had assaulted him a short time earlier.
The victim had several cuts and scrapes to his face as well as a “significant degree of swelling,” according to the report. The man was transported to Baptist Health-Richmond for treatment.
Officers located Brannon in a nearby residence and took him into custody without incident, the report stated. He was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Monday afternoon, according to the jail’s online records.
Man charged with drug, paraphernalia possession
Dustin Hall, 46, of Putney, was charged Friday with first- and second-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia after officers responded to reports of a burglary in progress.
About noon, officers were dispatched to a residence in the 200 block of Brittany Circle. Upon arrival, they discovered a screen had been removed from a rear window which was partially open. The officers found Hall inside the residence and determined he had been given permission to enter the home, but the owner failed to leave the door unlocked.
During their contact with Hall, the officers located a backpack that belonged to him containing a syringe loaded with suspected cocaine, a spoon, a small pack of cocaine powder and eight Suboxone strips, the police report stated.
Hall was lodged in the detention center and released later that day on a $1,500 unsecured third-party bond, according to a jail officer.
