LISBON - A Lisbon man who has had several brushes with law enforcement in recent weeks was in Columbiana County Municipal Court again on Tuesday accused of cutting another man at least three times with a knife on Monday.
A Dec. 5 preliminary hearing was set for Richard E. Parrish, 41, Maple Street Extension, Lisbon, who faces several charges, including felonious assault. Among his activities on Monday, Parrish is accused of brandishing a pocket knife and attacking Allen Ingledue on Center Street, causing a laceration on his left eyelid, a cut on his arm and another on his abdomen.
Judge Mark Frost set bond at $50,000 cash surety after Assistant County Prosecutor Don Humphrey Jr. explained Parrish's latest alleged crimes happened while he was out on bond for the previous ones.
Additionally on Monday, Parrish also allegedly became angry at Mary A. Johnson for going to Ingledue's house to get her cigarettes. According to court documents, he told her she had five seconds to return or he would pop her car tires and break her windows. Parrish reportedly followed up by going over to her house, breaking out the back window of her trailer and popping all four tires of her car.
When deputies were looking for Parrish Monday night, he reportedly ran from them into the woods near the Rose Avenue Apartments in an attempt to avoid arrest.
A pretrial was set for Dec. 5 for Parrish for charges of resisting arrest, criminal trespassing and two counts of criminal damaging. Some of those stemmed from him allegedly slashing tires on a vehicle on a property on Logtown Road in Lisbon on Sept. 19.
Additionally, Parrish was in Municipal Court on Nov. 22 arraigned on a domestic violence charge after allegedly assaulted his girlfriend, Crystal Holloway, earlier that week. Holloway waited a day before going to police, noting her boyfriend had threatened to tell police she was selling drugs if she reported the domestic violence. A Jan. 16 pretrial has been set on that charge.
The report by Holloway led to a search warrant of their home on Steubenville Pike by the Columbiana County Drug Task Force later that week, where agents reportedly seized 36 grams of heroin, a small amount of marijuana and a small amount of cash. No drug-related charges have been filed yet in regards to that incident.
