Man facing assault, other charges in Richmond, Anson counties

ROCKINGHAM — An Anson County man wanted on multiple charges in two counties was arrested by the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office on Friday, Oct. 14.

According to a press release from the sheriff’s office, 23-year-old Malcolm Murray, of Wadesboro, was wanted on domestic violence charges in his home county and on charges stemming from a June 28 incident in Richmond County.

Investigators with RCSO charged Murray with: breaking and entering; larceny after breaking and entering; breaking and entering to terrorize; damage to property; assault on a female; communicating threats; injury to real property; second-degree trespassing; unauthorized use of a motor vehicle; and resisting a public officer.

Murray was also served warrants in an Anson County case charging him with: assault on a female; battery of an unborn child; and communicating threats.

He was booked into the Richmond County Jail, where he was still being held Oct. 17 on a combined $50,000 secured bond. Murray is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 21 on the Anson charges and Oct. 31 on the Richmond charges.


Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction show Murray was on parole until March 10. He had been released from prison in June 2021 after serving four months after his probation was revoked from a 2019 felony conviction of larceny from the person.

Murray’s only other previous conviction was for simple assault in 2016.

Both prior convictions were in Anson County.

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