Man accused of intimidating victim

A Warren man is being held in the Trumbull County Jail without bond for yelling at a woman he is accused of robbing.

David Redd, 28, of Transylvania Avenue S.E., was arrested Wednesday on charges that allege he tried to intimidate his ex-girlfriend, who is pressing charges against him from breaking into her home and beating her in May.

Redd was jailed without bond on the third-degree felony intimidation charge at his initial appearance in Warren Municipal Court.

He was arrested by police late Wednesday in the 2100 block of Youngstown Road S.E.

Reports say on June 12, Redd went to his 29-year-old ex-girlfriend’s Oak Knoll Avenue S.E. home despite having a no-contact restraining order barring him from being near her.

A woman at the ex-girlfriend’s house told police she opened the door to the woman’s home and Redd burst into the home yelling.

He threatened to kill his ex-girlfriend, threw his cell phone against the wall and fled, reports say.

The month before, Redd was charged with aggravated burglary for kicking in the woman’s home at about 1 a.m. after they argued on the phone throughout the day over money and property, reports say.

Redd followed the woman and kicked in the door to the upstairs bathroom where she locked herself inside. Redd, reports say, struck her in the face seven or eight times while the woman hid in the bathtub while she was on the phone with 911 dispatch.

Redd hung up the phone, left the room, came back and hit her two or three more times in the head, reports say.

He fled after seeing police cruisers lights. Officers reported having to tackle Redd to the ground to arrest him.
