Blotter: Man arrested following reported abduction attempt
The following information was provided by criminal complaints filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court:
Patrick Wayne Sharp, 39, of Huntington was arrested Tuesday and charged with felony attempt to commit abduction of a person, felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance.
A woman told a Huntington Police officer that she was engaged in a verbal argument with a man in the 600 block of Trenton Place at about 9 p.m. Tuesday when the man exited his vehicle, grabbed her left arm and attempted to pull her into the vehicle to remove her from the area.
She provided a description of the vehicle to officers, who initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle matching that description in the 100 block of West 6th Avenue. The driver of the vehicle matched the description of the man involved in the argument.
Officers found 28.1 grams of marijuana in one of the man's pockets. The man also told police he had a bottle of diet pills in his pocket, and officers found a Viagra pill, for which the man did not have a valid prescription, hidden with the diet pills.
Sharp's bond was set at $50,000.
Marie Fowler Argolis, 29, of Huntington was arrested Monday and charged with two felony counts of fraud and related activity in connection with access devices that stem from two incidents earlier this month.
In the complaint, a Huntington Police officer said a woman used a debit card on two separate occasions at a business along Bridge Street in Huntington to remove a total of $85.50 in cash from another person's checking account. The woman did not have permission to use the debit card, according to the officer.
