Trumbull Man Charged in Violent Sexual Assault

Trumbull police have arrested a man accused in a violent sexual assault.

Richard Gray, 43, is accused of violently attacking a woman in his home sometime overnight Saturday into Sunday.

The victim told police that Gray was angry with her and had been drinking Saturday evening. Gray confronted her in the home and put her into a headlock. The victim said he held her down by the neck and threatened to hit her with a bottle.

The woman struggled and tried to call 911 but Gray threw her phone away and broke it, according to police. Gray then threw the woman into another room, held her down and sexually assaulted her.

The victim left the house once she was able and contacted police. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Gray was charged with unlawful restraint, strangulation, assault, sexual assault, threatening, interfering with a 911 call, and disorderly conduct. He was held on a $25,000 bond and appeared in court Monday.
