The Brown County Grand Jury handed down indictments to ten individuals, including Nicholas Crawford

The Brown County Grand Jury met recently and handed down indictments to 10 individuals, inclding Nicholas Keith Crawford.

Crawford, 27, of Higginsport, was indicted on one count of felonious assault, a second-degree felony. According to a probable cause affidavit filed in the Brown County Municipal Court, Crawford struck his victim, who was at one time his girlfriend prior to the incident, as well as bit her and chocked her, causing her to lose consciousness.

According to the affidavit, the incident began when Crawford began reading through the victim’s cell phone and loudly accusing the victim of dating other men. The victim said in the affidavit that at the time of the incident, she and Crawford were just friends.

The affidavit then states that after the victim sat down on a bed in Crawford’s home, Crawford punched her in the face, bit her in the stomach, held his hand over her mouth so she couldn’t call for help, and then choked her until she lost consciousness. When she came to, according to the affidavit, Crawford allegedly tried to convince her that she had only fallen off the bed, and that he hadn’t hurt her.

Crawford still allegedly wouldn’t give the cell phone back to the victim, and when he finally did, the victim called her mother and stayed on the line with the mother until she arrived at Crawford’s residence. The affidavit states that the mother and Crawford also got into a verbal argument. The victim and her mother then went to the Brown County Sheriff’s Office to file a report, and then went to Mt. Orab Mercy hospital for treatment.

Crawford was later apprehended on September 20 and is currently being held in the Brown County Adult Detention Center on $50,000 bond.
