Police Blotter

Posted: February 26, 2013 - 2:05pm

A 14-year-old boy brought a gun to an event for children at First Baptist Church of North Augusta on Friday, according to a North Augusta Public Safety incident report.

A lieutenant found the .45-caliber Glock 21 in the boy’s jacket after another juvenile told him others had spotted the gun in the area where they left jackets and backpacks.

The boy said the jacket was his but said he forgot the gun was there, according to the report. The boy was released to his mother, who told the lieutenant the gun belonged to her husband and should not have been in her son’s possession.

The manager of a downtown Augusta bar is facing charges of sexually attacking a woman who took him home Feb. 17.

According to a North Augusta Public Safety report, the woman, who works at The Playground with Frank Colafrancesco, offered to take him to his North Augusta home because he was too drunk to drive.

At his home, Colafrancesco forced himself on her, tied her with rope and repeatedly sexually assaulted her, according to the report. Police said he had previously told the victim he had been having trouble with his girlfriend.

After several unsuccessful attempts, the victim escaped and contacted police, she said.

Colafrancesco, 32, was arrested and charged with sex/criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping.
