Petition charges juvenile with sexual battery
By DEUCE NIVEN
Sexual battery and false imprisonment charges against a local teen are contained in a juvenile petition obtained Monday, Chief Donald Dowless of the Tabor City Police Department said.
Capt. Russell Conway obtained the petition against the 15-year-old male following a July 8 incident at Body Shapers fitness center on Live Oak Street.
A female employee of the business was uninjured, but clearly shaken after the mid-afternoon incident, Conway’s report said.
