A Loudon man was arrested July 21 after being charged with rape, kidnapping and assault charges.

Loudon Police Department responded to a call about a person who had been assaulted with a knife on Summer Street and they met a woman who had been held captive at the residence for six days by Richard Wayne McCollum, 43.

McCollum repeatedly physically and sexually abused the woman, Loudon Police Sgt. Robert Newman wrote in a report.

McCollum barricaded himself in a bedroom with a knife. Officers were forced to tear down the door and taser McCollum to take him into custody, according to the report.

The woman told officers the incident started July 16 when she went to the residence to take McCollum some money. When they were in his bedroom, McCollum “locked and secured the door with several objects” so the woman could not leave.

“Every day since (July 16), McCollum would force her to perform sexual acts once a day or he would beat her,” Newman wrote in the report. “He repeatedly assaulted her with a large chain, a metal pole, his hands, a switchblade knife and a Dr. Pepper can.”

McCollum took the woman’s phone and would not leave during her captivity. He was already out on bond for a previous assault on the woman.

McCollum was charged with three counts of aggravated kidnapping, five counts of aggravated rape, five counts of aggravated assault and resisting arrest and held without bond.

Man charged with statutory rapeA Lenoir City man was charged with statutory rape after police responded July 22 to a domestic assault call.

Lenoir City Police Officer Charles Dunkelberger was dispatched to a hotel on U.S. Highway 321 and found a teenage girl picking up belongings off the ground and her relative helping her. Christopher Tyler Knox, 26, was pacing the hallway on the second floor of the hotel.

The girl told Dunkelberger that Knox had been calling her all night while she and her relative were trying to sleep. She said Knox was accusing them of “doing stupid things,” Dunkelberger wrote in a report.

Knox was upset and went to the hotel after work where a verbal argument led to a physical altercation. The girl told Dunkelberger that Knox got on top of her and would not let her up when she tried to get her phone, and she was scared. The girl’s relative said that’s when she “pulled him off and slammed him into the wall,” Dunkelberger wrote in a report. Knox told Dunkelberger the argument was only verbal.

In a report written by Officer Jordan Samuels, Knox told Samuels he and the girl were only friends. The girl, however, told Samuels she and Knox had been dating for three months. Knox and the girl had been staying in the hotel room for five days, and the girl disclosed she and Knox had consensual intercourse twice during that stay, Samuels wrote in a report.

Knox was charged with domestic assault and two counts of statutory rape and released on $11,000 bond.
