Man charged with criminal abuse, other offenses

RICHMOND — Jimmy D. Bray, 44, of Dixie Plaza, was charged Thursday with several offenses, including first-degree criminal abuse and second-degree unlawful imprisonment after officers responded to a domestic incident, according to a Richmond Police Department news release.

About 5:23 p.m., officers were dispatched to the Redi Mart at 1104 Berea Road. Upon arrival, witnesses told the officers Bray was chasing a woman. An officer detained Bray and searched him, finding an open pocket knife, the release stated.

The officers then made contact with the woman, who told them she and Bray were arguing at their residence when he struck her in the head and continued to assault her. The female had been babysitting a 2-year-old child at the time, and she said Bray also struck the child in the face, cutting the child's nose, the release stated.

When the woman attempted to leave the residence, Bray held her against her will. She was able to free herself and flee, but Bray chased after her with the knife, the release stated.

According to the report, officers observed injuries to both the woman and the child.

In addition to the abuse and imprisonment offenses, Bray was additionally charged with first-degree wanton endangerment and fourth-degree assault. According to the report, Bray threatened to harm the woman as he was being arrested, and he was further charged with terroristic threatening, the release stated.

Bray was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Friday, according to the jail’s online records.

Man charged with burglary, criminal mischief, identity theft

According to the release, officers were dispatched 11:42 p.m. Wednesday to the 700 block of Cimarron Road to investigate a criminal-mischief complaint. Upon arrival, the officers met with a resident an apartments in the area who told them Kavanaugh manipulated the doorknob and entered the apartment, at which point he began attacking and choking the resident. The resident responded by striking Kavanaugh with a piece of metal rebar, the release stated.

Kavanaugh then fled from the residence and broke out two windows of the resident’s vehicle, the release stated.
