Man charged for sexual abuse of a minor

A man is being held currently at the Champaign County Jail on a bond of $75,000 for allegedly touching a six-year-old girl inappropriately.

Thirty-five-year-old Gregory Allen Pruett of Thomasboro, Illinois claimed he was innocent of charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim under age 13 last Tuesday, April 23.

Police investigations revealed that the girl was at the suspect’s house in Block 500, Pearl Drive on or around March 3 when the incident happened, according to Thomasboro Police Chief Keith Willis.

Pruett was arrested April 22 at his residence by Thomasboro police after the authorities had investigated a complaint placed by the victim’s mother against the suspect on March 10. Acting on the report, Thomasboro police filed the report at the Champaign County state attorney’s office and obtained a warrant to arrest Pruett.

Urbana apartment shooting leaves 1 injured

Early this morning a woman was shot in the shoulder at a north Urbana apartment complex.

The 30-year-old woman was walking to the laundry room in her apartment complex around 2 a.m. when she noticed two men standing in the doorway, lingering. She returned a short while later for her laundry, and the men were still there, this time with ski masks on, and one of them had a gun.

They yelled something at the woman, and then a shot was fired. The woman was retreating to her apartment when she was struck in the shoulder with a bullet. She called 9-1-1, but the police were unable to track down the men who allegedly were responsible for the attack.
