Charley Wilson Burks, 32, is charged in the robbery of a woman at the Motel 6 on Lee Highway.

Burks was also charged with false imprisonment in the incident Friday.

A woman, 23, said she was walking to her room from the nearby Waffle House and was about to enter her room when Burks ran toward her and shoved her into her room. She said he forced her onto the bed and demanded money.

She said when she told him she did not have any money, he put a knife to her throat and said, "B----, I will cut your face. Where is the money?"

She said she offered to give him $3, then Burks made her take off her pants so he could check her pockets. She said they struggled, and she was able to run out of the room and yell for help.

Burks chased her with the knife. He eventually fled when Waffle House customers came out to check on the commotion.

Burks dropped the knife at the scene, and it was recovered by police.

Burks was located at the Days Inn on Lee Highway. He had fresh cuts on his head and face.

The woman's cellphone was in his front pocket.

The woman was taken to the motel, where she made a positive identification of Burks.

Police Need To Stop The Road Cowboys - And Response (2)

Where is our highway patrol?  If they were known to regularly patrol our interstate highways through our city I don't think it would take long before the "truckers" were aware of it.  There are places in our country where this is the case.   When I have traveled Interstates 24 and 75 I may see the occasional car pulled over but rarely if ever is it an 18-wheeler. ...
