A 23-year-old was accused of trying to rape a woman early Monday at a Veterans Parkway apartment, authorities said.
Tyrie Thomas faces one count each of attempted rape, aggravated assault and aggravated stalking. He was booked into the Muscogee County Jail for an 8 a.m. Monday hearing in Columbus Recorder’s Court.
Columbus police were called to an apartment complex on Veterans Parkway around 3 a.m. Monday to investigate an assault. A woman told authorities that Thomas tried to rape her, but no other details were released in the initial police report.
