Hamlet man charged with assaulting woman, child

ROCKINGHAM — A man is facing charges after allegedly assaulting a woman and a child.

According to arrest warrants, 29-year-old Charles Derrick Malloy, of Driggers Drive, Hamlet, choke-slammed a woman on a porch and slammed her to the floor a second time, grabbing her by the throat and pushing her down, as well as throwing two butcher knives at her.

He reportedly told the female victim that he would kill her, and damaged a wall of her home.

Malloy is also accused of pushing down an 11-year-old child.

The incident occurred Oct. 14, according to warrants.

He was charged by the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office with one misdemeanor count each of assault on a female, assault with a deadly weapon, assault on a child under 12, communicating threats and injury to real property.

Malloy was booked into the Richmond County Jail without bond. He was given a $25,000 secured bond the following day, according to court documents and is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 2.

Jail records show Malloy is also charged with one felony count of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia and his being held on an additional $10,000 secured bond. His court date for those charges is Nov. 5.

In 2010, Malloy was convicted on two misdemeanor counts of second-degree trespassing in Montgomery County and one felony count of larceny after breaking and entering in Richmond County, according to records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction.

His probation was revoked on the felony charge and Malloy spent nearly seven months behind bars.

Malloy’s only other conviction in North Carolina, according to state records, was in 2012 for communicating threats.


All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
