RPD: Woman’s boyfriend tied her up, left her in apartment for hours

RICHMOND — A Jason Drive man was arrested last week after his roommate came home and discovered the man’s girlfriend tied to a shower rod, according to Richmond police.

Michael J. Brainard, 23, was charged Aug. 28 with first-degree unlawful imprisonment and fourth-degree assault.

Officers were responding at 7:30 a.m. to a home in the 400 block of Jason Drive on an unrelated matter when a woman approached them. She told the officers Brainard had tied her up and refused to let her leave their apartment the previous evening, according to the report.

The woman said she and Brainard had been arguing when he physically assaulted her and tied her arms to a shower rod. He also tied her feet and then left for work about 10 p.m. she said.

Their roommate came home about 2:30 a.m. and freed her, the RPD reported.

Brainard was interviewed at the police station after which he was charged with the two offenses. He pleaded not guilty to the charges last week at his arraignment in Madison District Court and is set for a preliminary hearing at 9 a.m. today.

He remained Tuesday in the Madison County Detention Center.

Woman charged with abuse after toddler’s teeth damaged, removed

A woman is facing a criminal abuse charge involving her 1-year-old son after police say she caused the child to lose four teeth.

Casandra H. Trickler, 18, of Redwood Drive was charged Thursday with first-degree criminal abuse. She is scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m. Tuesday in Madison District Court.

Officers were summoned to Baptist Health Richmond hospital shortly Thursday afternoon to investigate an injury to a child. 

Officers learned at the hospital that Trickler’s 1-year-old child had suffered an injury to his mouth. The subsequent investigation revealed that Trickler was at her mother’s house on McDougal Avenue when her child got his teeth entangled in the wiring of a metal shelf in the bathroom, according to the report.

When Trickler could not easily extricate the child from the wiring, she forcefully yanked the shelf from the child’s mouth, resulting in four of his lower teeth being damaged to the extent that they had to be removed by a pediatric dental surgeon. 

The child was taken to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for treatment.

Police arrest man in connection with meth-making

Police charged Brandon L. Walters, 29, West Main Street, with manufacturing methamphetamine after responding to a 911 call Saturday.

Officers were dispatched at 3:04 p.m. to a residence in the 300 block of West Main Street in response to a 911 hang-up call made from the residence, according to the RPD report.

Upon arrival, an officer observed Walters standing outside of a vehicle. Walters then discarded an unknown object by the vehicle, according to the officer.

The officer investigated and discovered several items commonly used in the process of manufacturing methamphetamine, the report stated. Officers recovered five 1-gallon clear plastic bags, a brown glass jar, coffee filters, a bottle of Liquid Fire and paper towels containing an unidentified white powdery substance.

Walters was charged for manufacturing methamphetamine and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.

Woman charged with attacking boyfriend   with knife

Police charged Melissa Nester, 40, East Main Street, on Sunday in connection with a domestic assault that occurred two days earlier.

Police were dispatched Friday to a residence in the 1500 block of East Main Street to investigate a reported assault. Upon arrival, officers met with the male victim who reported that Nester, his girlfriend, became angry at him and broke dishes in the house before assaulting him with a utility knife.  The victim suffered minor lacerations to his left arm and declined medical treatment.

Nester fled the residence prior to police arrival.

Nester was located Sunday and interviewed at the police station. During the course of her stay at the police station, Nester attempted to dispose of a baggie containing approximately 12 grams of marijuana by concealing it in the interview room, according to the RPD report.

Nester was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, possession of marijuana and tampering with physical evidence.

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
