Seymour man facing felony charges


Police investigating a report of a woman screaming for help early Sunday on Seymour’s northeast side arrested a 30-year-old man on four charges.

Tyrell C. Campbell of Seymour faces preliminary Level 6 felony charges of strangulation, domestic battery and criminal confinement and a Class A misdemeanor charge of interfering with reporting a crime in connection with the incident reported at 1:31 a.m. in the 5200 block of Knollview Way.

Seymour Police Department Lt. John Watson said when Seymour Cpl. Jake Florine and officers Crystal Schapson, Jeremy Soliday and Ben Miller arrived at Burkart Crossing Apartments, they could hear a woman inside an apartment yelling for a man to get out of her way.

Officers announced their presence and began knocking on the door, but the man continued to restrain the woman and would not allow her to answer the door, Watson said.

Police then heard loud crashing noises coming from within the apartment, and they forced their way into the apartment fearing the woman was being attacked, he said.

The man, later identified as Campbell, was arrested and booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 3:02 a.m. Sunday. He was being held without bond Monday pending his initial court appearance.

Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Reserve Officer Joe Francis assisted.
