WOONSOCKET â€“ Rape charges were filed in Sixth District Court Monday against two men police say raped a 42-year-old woman at knifepoint over the weekend.
Owen M. Hicks, 21, of North Smithfield, and Patrick Moore, 19, of Providence, were arrested about 3 a.m. Saturday after police stopped a blue pickup truck on the Court Street Bridge.
Police said the men had just driven away from the womanâ€™s apartment on Harrison Avenue, where the alleged rape had occurred a few moments earlier. Police seized a pair of boxer shorts and a small knife from the vehicle, which Moore was driving.
WOONSOCKET â€“ A woman left an infant and a 4-year-old home alone while she was out breaking into a neighborâ€™s house Saturday, police say.
Moments before they located Rondelle J. Hadrick, 22, police found her children in her second-floor apartment at 37 Paradis Ave. The infant was in a child restraint seat in the middle of the kitchen floor, crying and screaming. The latch on his safety seat was unbuckled and the kitchen was a mess, police said. His brother, seemingly oblivious to his motherâ€™s absence, was in a bedroom, sleeping.
