Man charged with burglary, violating restraining order

RICHMOND — A North Madison Avenue man was charged Saturday with second-degree burglary and violation of a domestic violence order in connection with an early November incident.

Richmond police charged Jeanbaptiste N. Alexis, 29, after his former girlfriend reported he forced his way into her residence Nov. 4, refused to leave and then passed out. Alexis had been issued a domestic violence restraining order in October, the report stated. After Alexis passed out, the former girlfriend reported she left the apartment.

According to the report, he continued to violate the protective order by texting and calling the victim until she reported the offense to the police.

Officers located Alexis at Little Caesar’s Pizza and took him into custody without incident, the report stated. He was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Tuesday afternoon, according to the jail’s online records.

Man charged with receiving stolen property

Noah B. Howell, 26, of Amberly Way, was charged Monday with receiving stolen property worth more than $500 in connection with an assault that occurred earlier in the month.

The victim reported Nov. 25 several items had been stolen from her residence about the time of the assault, and Howell was identified as a suspect. An investigating officer found an iPad and two purses in Howell’s residence that had been stolen from the victim, the report stated.

Howell remained in jail Tuesday afternoon, according to the jail’s online records.

  • EKU dorm sprinklers may have been activated maliciously

    Fluctuating pressure then caused a campus water main to break, according to EKU spokesperson Mark Whitt.
    The cause is uncertain, but university officials are investigating to determine if the sprinklers were activated maliciously, Whitt said.
    The residence hall houses 260 students who were placed in other university housing or stayed with friends. All were able to move back in later in the day, he said.
