CLIFTON R. ROBINSON


Clifton Rodrick Robinson, 42, of 547 Hackett Ave., Greenwood was arrested Tuesday and charged with first-degree assault and battery and first-degree burglary.

Greenwood police went to a Phoenix Street apartment Jan. 19, where they spoke with a woman who said a man forced his way into her apartment and assaulted her, according to a report. The man knocked on her door, and as she reached to lock the deadbolt, the man forced his way in and pushed her against a wall, the report said.

She said he then punched and slapped her face, and she fought back by hitting him with a potted plant, the report said. When she tried to call police, he took her cellphone and left, the report said.
