Dispute: A 51-year-old Richmond man suffered head lacerations and a 31-year-old woman lost her front teeth during a dispute over trail cameras the woman borrowed but failed to return, Thursday. The male said he’d loaned the cameras to the woman when he purchased cocaine from her about five weeks ago but she’d never returned them, so he reached out to her on social media and requested she either bring them back or give him $80 to cover the cost. Instead, he said she offered him a bag with a white powder in it which he declined. He said she walked away, but her boyfriend and two other men waiting in the car got out and demanded to know where their drugs were, punching and kicking him. The woman’s boyfriend accused him of assaulting her, though he claimed she’d fallen down. He said the men took his house and car keys from him and threw a brick through two windows on his vehicle before leaving, returning a short time later, asking again about the missing drugs and telling him “his keys and his body would be found in Brush Creek” if their drugs weren’t returned. Deputies said they talked to one of the men in the vehicle who insisted nothing had happened. He said he’d driven the woman and her boyfriend to the older man’s residence and she got out, and when she returned “her front teeth (were) knocked out.”
