The Cannon County Sheriff's Department arrested a man Thursday (July 15) who is alleged to have threatened a man who was doing repair work on his motorcycle.
Deputy Anthony Young was dispatched to 190 Woodbury Rd., Auburntown on July 10. Upon arrival he spoke with Ravi Goin, who stated that a man known to him as "G-Man" had been to his residence with a baseball bat and had threatened him.
Goin also stated the person had gone through his garage and truck looking for something, without permission. Goin said the man had a baseball bat in his hands while walking around the property and at one point he beat on the side of Goin's house with the bat.
Goin said he went to Frank Patrick's house at 168 Woodbury Rd. and called 911. He described the man with the bat as wearing a light-colored cap, shirt and shorts. Goins said that while we has at Patrick's home the man was yelling at his girlfriend Tracy Crawley on the front porch of their residence.
Young then spoke with Crawley, who said Goin had the man's motorcycle at his shop to repair it. She said she too only knew the man as "G-Man" and that he first went to to their garage and took a lock off the door and went inside. She said he then beat on the door of the residence and was yelling something she could not understand.
Crawley relayed that the conversion with the man continued and the entire time he was there she felt threatened and was afraid he was going to hurt her or her boyfriend.
Young went to the garage, got the license number off the motorcycle, and learned from dispatch that it was registered to David Tombs, 3908 Sycamore Creek, Woodbury.
While Young was running the tag on the motorcycle, he heard Deputy Steve McMillen run a tag on a pickup truck, a red Nissan, which also came back to Tombs. He radioed McMillen to ask him to put a hold on the truck but the vehicle had already left.
McMillen went to the library and took a statement from Patty Chappell, who works there. Chappel said the man driving the truck had come to the library to use the computer there to check his e-mail. She stated the man had told her he had been a Ravi Goin's residence about his motorcycle and was having a bad morning. She said he did not know the man's name but that he spoke with a British accent.
Young also took a statement from Frank Patrick, who basically confirmed the accounts given by Goin and Crawley of the incident.
Young returned to the sheriff's department and attempted to make contact with Combs by phone, but received no answer.
Young took out warrants on Tombs for aggravated assault and for burglary. He was arrested after nearly a week of searching.
