Britt arrest
A Newport man was picked up Tuesday evening on a number of charges stemming from a May 2nd. incident at his home. Michael David Britt, 33, Mineral Street, Newport, was arrested by Newport captain Terry Lawson on charges of aggravated rape, aggravated assault and aggravated kidnapping. In addition, he was wanted for violation of probation and failure to appear for a court hearing. Warrants obtained by Newport Detective Scott Lamb allege that Britt strangled the woman until she was unconscious and then allegedly used a hypodermic needle to shoot drugs into her arms against her will. He threatened to kill the victim and then allegedly sexually assaulted her, threatening to kill her and to cut off the fingers and toes of her son. Detective Lamb said the victim had injuries to her arms, face, head and chest, as well as other areas of her body. Bond for Britt is set at $50,000.
