A Bolton man faces a slew of felony charges, including property damage and assault after several incidents, including one where a Molotov cocktail was left at the scene. 

Arrest reports show Charles A. Bowen, 30, of 14470 Sam Potts Hwy., Bolton, was held under $305,500 secured bond on charges from multiple incidents. The warrants included assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, damage to property, kidnapping, interfering with emergency communications, assault on a female, assault by strangulation and communicating threats, among others. 

Bowen was arrested Nov. 20 at his father’s home on Sam Potts Highway near Bolton. The senior Bowen called 911 after his son allegedly went to the home while intoxicated and began damaging the residence. The suspect ran out the back door but was captured, according to the sheriff’s office. 

He was also wanted for a September attack that sent a woman to the hospital, according to the sheriff’s office.

Bowen allegedly forced his way into Heather Robinson’s home in September, according to warrants. In that case, he reportedly  severely beat and strangled the woman, damaged the home and threatened to burn her house. He later fled when deputies were contacted. A glass bottle of gasoline with a paper towel wick was found at the scene, the sheriff’s office reported.
