Kevin Timothy Barr


GRAHAM — A Burlington man has been charged after authorities said he held a woman down and assaulted her Monday night.

At 9 p.m., the Alamance County Sheriff's Office responded to the area of 1159 Trollingwood Road, Haw River, in reference to a domestic assault. Witnesses who called 911 reported that a man was assaulting the female while holding her down on the ground, the sheriff's office said in a news release.

When deputies arrived, the victim was found but the suspect had fled the scene in a black Dodge Charger.

The victim said she had been assaulted multiple times, and held against her will at a residence in Green Level before being taken to Mebane, the sheriff's office said.

While investigators with the Special Victims Unit were gathering information, deputies found the suspect, who was identified as 29-year-old Kevin Timothy Barr of 127 Telegraph Lane, Burlington, and placed him under arrest, the sheriff's office said.

Barr was charged with second-degree kidnapping and two counts of assault on a female. He was placed in the county jail without bail since he and the victim had been in a prior relationship, officials said. 

The sheriff's office said additional charges are possible.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Special Victims Unit.
