Prime Example Of Terror On Our Local Streets

Here is an article written by a local paper. A prime example of  terror on our streets. This is the same man that is awaiting trial for a similar instance. Just weeks before these horrible crimes. He was released the same evening as the crime occurred. Released without paying any bail. For sexual crime. He then goes and commits more crimes of the same nature. Shouldn’t someone have to answer for the fact that he is a danger to society, and was released just hours after he  commited a crime.

EDWARDSVILLE – A teen charged last week on the assault of a jogger along State Street in Alton now faces additional charges connected to an incident outside a Godfrey store.

Seventeen-year-old Latayuss J. Curry was charged Wednesday with felony counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and attempted robbery in connection with the incident two weeks ago outside the Schnucks supermarket in Godfrey.

Curry until recently was a resident of the Catholic Children’s Home at 1400 block of State Street. He has been in custody since April 14, when he is alleged to have attacked a female jogger. The newest incident is alleged to have occurred two days before the jogger attack.

He was charged in Madison County Circuit Court. Circuit Judge Charles Romani Jr. signed the warrant and criminal information against Curry.

Romani set bond of $100,000 for Curry, who has remained held at the Madison County Jail in Edwardsville since being taken into custody April 16.

Deputies with the Madison County Sheriff’s Department took a report from a female victim about 2:15 a.m. Tuesday, April 12, at the Schnucks at 2712 Godfrey Road.

The victim reported that she was walking to her car in the parking lot of the store and that a male, later identified as Curry, approached her in the parking lot. The victim did not know Curry. She said Curry was standing by the entrance to the store and asked her what time it was. The victim looked at her cell phone and gave Curry the correct time. The victim told deputies that Curry then pulled his pants down and exposed himself to her.

The victim said she was alarmed and started walking to her car. Curry followed her and asked her whether she needed help with her groceries. The victim told Curry numerous times that she did not need help, but he continued to ask. The victim made it to her car and started to load her groceries. Curry then allegedly pulled his pants down again and exposed himself. Curry then allegedly rubbed himself against the victim.

The victim reported that she had her wallet in her hand, and Curry grabbed the wallet from her. The victim said she immediately was able to grab the wallet back from Curry; she said he then fled the area on foot behind the store.

The victim reported the incident to Schnucks personnel and sheriff’s deputies immediately afterward.

Curry was arrested by officers from the Alton Police Department on Thursday, April 14, in connection with an attack on a jogger along State Street in Alton. Curry has been charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse and unlawful restraint in that incident.
