Never miss a local story.
Officials were called to a residence near Norton Street July 3, 2013 in response to a sexual assault that occurred in the area earlier that day, Columbus Police Detective Brittany Hayes.
The victim told detectives on the scene that she was two months pregnant and a man she knew abused her. She reported that she was asleep right before the attack.
"[The victim] told police that [Fair] woke her up, began choking her, put a razor, or eyebrow archer, to her neck and stated that he was going to kill her," Hayes said. "[The woman] then stated to police that he drug her into the bedroom and forced himself on her and raped her."
Police said a detective who is no longer with the Columbus Police Department was originally assigned to the case. Hayes said she was recently called to assume the case and spoke with the victim to confirm that the information outlined in the incident report was correct.
The victim confirmed that everything in the report was accurate but went on to say that she didn't want to file charges against her attacker, according to Hayes' testimony.
Because of the circumstances surrounding the incident, Hayes still issued arrest warrants against Fair. The suspect was apprehended Saturday inside of the Macon State Prison, where he was serving time for an unrelated incident.
According to an arrest report, the defendant is a convicted felon in Georgia. Recorder's Court Judge Michael Cielinski said Fair was found guilty of aggravated assault, theft by taking, simple battery and more.
The defendant was represented by Public Defender Charles Lykins and chose not to testify.
The judge told the detective to notify Georgia Probation about Fair's new charges.
