William Turner 

William Turner, 49, Center Street, Berea, was arrested for second-degree assault, adult kidnapping and first-degree unlawful imprisonment after Richmond police executed a search warrant for a missing person at Sara Leigh Drive in Richmond.

Upon arriving at the victim's residence, they found Turner, who is not a resident there, as well as the victim, who had bruises to her right eye, her head and right leg and was visibly afraid according to a police citation.

Once the victim and Turner were separated, she told officers she had been being held against her will by Turner for the past two weeks.

She advised officers Turner had "pistol whipped" her face and head with a firearm. Officers were able to locate the firearm in the home.

She stated Turner also destroyed her cell phone and hid her car keys so that she would not be able to contact anyone for help, and would not let her contact anyone else.

The victim said she needed medical attention and begged Turner to let her leave, but he would not.

Turner was taken to the Madison County Detention Center where he remained Friday morning according to online jail records.

Other arrests include:

• Bradley Smith, 41, Villa Drive, Richmond, for failure to appear on several indictment warrants that charge him with two counts of first-degree sodomy, two counts of adult kidnapping, first-degree robbery, two counts of fourth-degree assault and persistent felony offender.

• Jesse Saunders, 28, Merrick Drive, Richmond, second-degree unlawful imprisonment, and violation of a Kentucky EPO/DVO.

• Curtis Broughton, 29, address unknown, public intoxication of a controlled substance, and theft by unlawful taking under $500. He was also charged for failure to appear on a Rockcastle County warrant for first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and first offense aggravated operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol.
