Police arrest man for multiple incidents

RICHMOND — Richmond police arrested a 21-year-old Bonanza Drive man in connection with several open investigations, Chief Larry Brock announced Friday.

William Douglas Fultz was taken into custody Thursday night at a home on Longview Drive around 5 p.m., Brock said.

Fultz is charged in connection with incidents dating back to August of last year, Brock said.

The oldest charge is a second-degree robbery accusation stemming from an Aug. 3, 2009, incident outside a convenience store in north Richmond.

Fultz is accused of forcibly stealing a wallet containing $150 in cash from a victim in the parking lot of the Redi Mart on N. Second Street before fleeing in a car with an accomplice, Brock said.

Police also charged Fultz with first-degree burglary, second-degree assault, third-degree terroristic threatening and violating a domestic violence order in connection with a Jan. 29 incident at a home in the 200 block of Wray Court.

Brock said officers responded to the home following a report of Fultz assaulting a former girlfriend.

When police arrived, the victim said Fultz had attempted to force his way into the home. The woman fled the home with Fultz chasing her, Brock said, and Fultz allegedly struck the woman on the leg with a police-style baton.

The woman suffered swelling and bruising as a result of the alleged attack, Brock said.

The most recent charge against Fultz is a misdemeanor receiving stolen property charge resulting from alleged possession of a stolen Sony PlayStation 3 video game console.

The console was reported stolen from an apartment in the 800 block of Berry Court on March 19, and witnesses claim to have seen Fultz and another man, Stewart Ballew, in possession of the console.

Ballew was charged with the same offense previously after being arrested on an unrelated matter.

Fultz was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center following his arrest, Brock said.
