Police have charged 55-year-old Raymond Locklin with forcing a woman to withdraw $20 from a bank.
Locklin, of 2015 Stuart St., faces charges of robbery, aggravated assault, kidnapping, two counts of domestic assault and theft of property.
Locklin, who is 6'3" and weighs 225 pounds, has a record that includes multiple assaults and thefts as well as drug and driving infractions.
Sara Tramble said she was beaten and forced by Locklin to withdraw $20 from the First Tennessee Bank on E. 23rd Street in an incident on Feb. 23.
She said after they broke off a romantic relationship, he came to her and asked for money. She said when she refused, he became angry and hit her twice on the left side of her face, knocking her to the ground. She said while she was down, Locklin started to strangle her with both his hands.
She said he told her she had to ride with him to the bank to get the money or he would kill her. She said she did withdraw the money and, after she handed it to him, he drove off without her. Ms. Tramble called police from the bank.
Officers said she had marks and abrasions on her throat as well as discoloration on her face.
Police initially were not able to find Locklin.
