Two charged with assault at Jungle bar

RICHMOND — Richmond police on Sunday charged William H. Isaacs, 25, of Big Hill Avenue, with second-degree assault, a felony, in connection with a Saturday evening incident.

According to an RPD news release, at 9:29 p.m. officers were dispatched to the Jungle bar on Heath Street off Big Hill Avenue to investigate a reported assault.

Upon arrival, the officers learned that Isaacs had struck the victim in the face with brass knuckles. A female acquaintance of the victim attempted to intervene, but was struck in the face by Jack Isaacs, 59, who was with William Isaacs. Both suspects had fled the scene before officers arrived, the police report stated.

The Isaacs were interviewed at the police station Sunday, after which William was charged with second-degree assault and Jack was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

William was additionally charged with possession of marijuana, which officers found on his person, according to the report.

Both men were lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, but were released later the same day, according to the jail’s online records.

Man charged with two counts of burglary

Eddie Harrison, 43, of Richmond, was charged Thursday with two counts of second-degree burglary.

According to the release, a resident of Spurlin Mobile Home Park reported Sept. 13 that her residence had been unlawfully entered and a 32-inch Emerson LCD television and unknown brand DVD player had been stolen.

Officers later identified Harrison as a suspect in the case and a warrant for his arrest on charges of second-degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking under $500 was issued Sept. 26.

In a separate incident Sept. 16, police responded to a burglary in progress in the 200 block of Evansdale Avenue. Ashley D. Lamb, 26, and Bradley S. Lamb, 24, were charged in connection with the incident, but officers later discovered Harrison had been acting as a lookout for the Lambs and had fled the scene when police arrived, the police report stated.

A second warrant charging him with complicity to second-degree burglary was issued Sept. 20.

Harrison was located on South Maple Street and was taken into custody on the two warrants. He was lodged in the detention center, where he remained Monday evening, according to the jail’s online records.
