Police: Milford Man Charged After Locking Up Elderly Woman

Posted:

MILFORD, Del. - A Milford man is behind bars after police say he locked an elderly woman inside a bedroom.

According to the Milford Police Department, officers were called to a home in the 600 block of Lakelawn Drive on Thursday shortly before 1 p.m. for a reported imprisonment. Officers were able to make contact with the woman, who police say had been freed from the bedroom by a witness inside the home.

According to police, 49-year-old Charles Robinson had locked the woman in the bedroom, knowing she would not be able to unlock it. He was taken into custody and transported to the Milford Police Department, where officers say he damaged a portion of the holding area.

Robinson was charged with unlawful imprisonment and criminal mischief. He was ordered to have no contact with the victim and was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution after failing to post $3,000 cash bail.

A preliminary hearing will be scheduled later this month.
