Local Man Charged with Robbery for Stealing $26

Police on Monday charged Damon Manuel Howard, 31, of Newport, with second-degree robbery and domestic simple assault for allegedly taking $26 from a woman after an assault.

Police said they responded to a city apartment where the victim said she was pushed by Howard before he took the money from her pocket and walked out.

Police tracked Howard to a unit at the Rodeway Inn at 31 West Main Road in Middletown.

Police knocked on the door and a friend of Howard’s reportedly answered the door. Howard was found inside lying on the floor.
