Police Make Arrests In Case Of Man Cut With Machete And Man Hit With Baseball Bat and Burned By Uncle, Cousin

Friday, January 11, 2013

Police have made arrests in a case of a man cut with a machete and in a second case in which a man said he was hit in the head with a baseball bat and had hot water poured on his back by relatives.

Xavier Marquelle Turner and Frank Bulloch, Jr. are charged in an attack on Frankie Starling at a motel on 20th Street last Aug. 30. Turner was arrested soon after the incident and Bulloch was jailed this week.

Starling said he was eating dinner in his motel room when Turner and another black male he did not know came over.

He said once they were inside the room that Turner struck him in the face with his fist and demanded that he give him the money from his paycheck that he had just received. he said Turner took $30 cash out of his wallet.

He said the other man produced a black machete and cut him on the left hand.

He said he managed to push his way out of the room.

When Turner was interviewed by police, he gave officers Bulloch's name. Starling then picked Bulloch out of a lineup.

In an incident Wednesday, police went to Parkridge Hospital to check out an aggravated assault against Demetrius Bowman, who had numerous injuries. They included third-degree burns on his back, a fractured skull and broken jaw.

Officers spoke with Carlos Bowman, who said he received a call from his brother, Jarvis Bowman, who said he and Demetrius got into an argument that led to him hitting Demetrius with a wooden baseball bat. Carlos said he told Jarvis to leave before he got angry.

Demetrius Bowman said while he was at the home of his uncle Jarvis Bowman at 3612 6th Ave. that he was struck several times in the face by his uncle with the bat. He said they got into an argument over someone breaking into Jarvis' home.

He said Jarvis left the room, then returned with the bat and used it to knock him out while he was not looking. He said when he came to, they argued again and Jarvis again began hitting him in the face with the bat. He said he passed out again.

He said he later was awakened by boiling water being thrown on him by Jarvis, while Jeremy Bowman tied him up with duct tape and held him down. He passed out again.

He said he was awakened again by Jarvis who asked if he needed to go to the hospital. Jarvis then took him to Parkridge. He was later transferred to Erlanger Hospital.

Evidence collected from the home of Jarvis Bowman included a wooden bat and a towel with blood on it.

Demetrius Bowman remains in the hospital awaiting surgery on his face.

Jarvis Bowman and Jeremy Bowman are both 38.

They are charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault and aggravated kidnapping.
