Two charged with holding woman against her will

After officers hear scream inside apartment

RICHMOND — Before Richmond police knocked on an apartment door Thursday morning to investigate a disturbance, they heard a woman inside scream.

No one responded to the knock, and officers then forced entry into the apartment on North Keeneland Drive, according to a police department news release.

Inside, they encountered Nina M. Shaw, 21, of Grayson, and Curtis Jarrell, 22, of North Keeneland Drive, who were both charged with first-degree unlawful imprisonment of a woman who told police she was being held against her will.

The officers determined that Shaw was preventing the victim from leaving and had forcibly taken her cell phone so she could not call for help, the news release stated.

The victim told the officers she heard them knock on the door, but Shaw and Jarrell prevented her from answering it.

Both were lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.

Jarrell was released the next day on a $5,000 bond, according to a jail booking officer.

Shaw also was charged with first-degree robbery and resisting arrest. She remained in jail Monday evening, according to the detention center’s website.
