NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — Police arrested a man for allegedly assaulting a woman and stealing from her.

At 9:17 p.m. on September 6, officers responded to the 300 block of Forrestal Circle for a domestic assault. The victim, a 39-year-old Newport News woman, told police she was assaulted by Wayne Burreall, a man she knew. Burreall also reportedly stole the victim’s phone and forcibly took two rings from her hand. Burreall left the scene before police got on scene.

Officers determined the incident wasn’t a domestic assault. Warrants were then taken out for Burreall’s arrest.

Burreall was arrested on Tuesday at the Newport News City Jail and was charged with robbery, assault and grand larceny.
