Tarboro man indicted on kidnapping, rape charges
Jul 5, 2019



A Wayne County grand jury indicted a Tarboro man on kidnapping and rape charges in connection to a 2018 sexual assault case.

The jury handed down 48-year-old George Carter Petty Jr.’s indictment on Monday in Wayne County Superior Court.

He is indicted on one felony count of first-degree forcible sexual offense, one count of attempted first-degree forcible sexual offense, one count of second-degree kidnapping, one count of assault inflicting physical injury by strangulation and one count of larceny.

Goldsboro police identified Petty as a suspect in an April 2018 kidnapping and sexual assault case, according to police. Officers with the department’s “A” shift responded to a call regarding a possible domestic assault on North Berkeley Boulevard on April 12.

After arriving on scene, police spoke with a Princeton woman who was “extremely upset and had visible signs of abuse on her face, neck and arms,” police reported. Investigators with the department’s Investigations Division opened an investigation into the assault.

During the investigation, the woman told police Petty kidnapped and sexually assaulted her at knifepoint, police said. Officers obtained a warrant for Petty’s arrest.

The warrant states Petty kidnapped and sexually assaulted the woman at knifepoint. Petty used a switchblade and cut the woman’s throat while holding it against her skin, the warrant reads.

Members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested Petty on May 2, 2018, in Dallas, Texas, three weeks after the assault, police reported. Police charged Petty with one count of first-degree kidnapping, one count of first-degree forcible sexual assault and one count of assault with a deadly weapon.
