Economy Inn Assault
PITT COUNTY -

Greenville Police arrest a man for two separate assault incidents.  Police say this man assaulted a woman at a motel and then robbed and assaulted another woman at a drug store.

Just after midnight on June 9th, a woman told police she was attacked in her motel room at the Economy Inn.  She was able to run away from the man she says she didn't know.

After that incident, a woman at the Walgreens on South Memorial Drive reported being attacked and robbed by a man while she was trying to rent a movie outside the business.  That incident happened at approximately 3:00 a.m.

A police dog tracked down 47-year-old Keith Sinclair in a vacant lot a few blocks away from the Walgreens.  He's facing charges in connection with both incidents.
Sinclair was jailed at the Pitt County Detention Center under a $200,000 secured bond.
