A Hampton man is in custody after being charged with sexual battery and false imprisonment after a March 10 incident at Kenwood Park.

Sheriff Barry Babb said that Tyson Pullins, 29 approached a woman walking on the track at the park.

The victim said the man put her in a bear hug, but she was able to free herself from the man.

Babb said when the woman asked the man what he was doing, Pullins touched her in an intimate area and than ran to his car.

The woman copied down his tag number. Pullins was subsequently arrest by the Sheriff’s Department and is now an inmate at the jail.
