Villa Ridge Man Charged with Domestic Assault

A Villa Ridge man is facing multiple charges following a domestic disturbance in Cranklin County.  Franklin County Sheriff Deputies responded to the 600 block of Lakeshore Drive in Villa Ridge for a reported domestic disturbance at noon on Tuesday.  Upon arrival Deputies learned an altercation had occurred at the residence between a man and a woman.  During the ensuing argument the man threatened the woman with a knife and grabbed her.  The woman was able to flee, but the man took her cell phone in an effort to prevent her from calling the authorities.  She was able to go to a nearby residence to contact the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.  Deputies were able to locate evidence at the scene of the domestic assault and arrested the man.  The suspect, 19-year Ricky Church Jr., has since been charged with two counts of domestic assault and one count of armed criminal action.  His bond has been set at 35,000 dollars cash only.
