Man Under Robbery Indictment Arrested on Sexual Assault Charge

According to an arrest affidavit, a 20-year-old who was indicted in a September 2017 armed robbery was arrested on Tuesday morning on an allegation that he assaulted a woman sexually in September 2015.

According to the affidavit, Teriontie K. Griffin, of Bellmead, was arrested by Waco police on a sexual assault charge after a woman identified Griffin as the man who sexually assaulted her. The woman said Griffin asked her for sex, then punched her and raped her after she said refused.

She was able to identify Griffin from a photo lineup provided by the police, the affidavit states.

Griffin was arrested by police on an aggravated robbery charge in October 2017 in the Sept. 19 robbery of a Valero Corner Store at 4025 Bosque Blvd. Griffin and his co-defendant, Skyler Christopher Durham, then 17, were indicted by a McLennan County grand jury in December.

Griffin was taken to McLennan County Jail on a second-degree felony charge of sexual assault. He was also being held on a bond forfeiture charge in the aggravated robbery case and remained in custody Tuesday evening with bond listed at $210,000.

Durham also remained in custody on the aggravated robbery charge and several other offenses with bond listed at $321,000.
