A former University of the Cumberlands student was indicted earlier this month on felony charges he unlawfully imprisoned and attempted to rape a woman on Sept. 2.

Carlton J. Thompson, 22, address unlisted, was a student at the school when Williamsburg police say he violated an emergency protective order after he earlier allegedly attacked his girlfriend and tied her up during an argument in a school parking lot.

The woman told police Thompson forced her into his vehicle and ordered her to take off her clothes. He then ripped off her clothing, she said, and tied her up with a TV cable. Thompson reportedly threatened to kill her.

She told police she was held for several hours before Thompson released her.

On Sept. 5, the woman was granted an emergency protective order, but the next day she reported to the court that Thompson was calling and text messaging her. Police arrested Thompson for violating the EPO on Sept. 7.

The grand jury formally indicted Thompson on one count each of criminal attempt to commit first-degree rape, first-degree unlawful imprisonment, first-degree criminal mischief and third-degree criminal mischief.

The criminal mischief charges stem from alleged damage Thompson did to a laptop computer and vehicle owned by the woman, according to the indictment.

The most serious of the charges, the criminal attempt to commit first-degree rape, is a Class C felony, punishable by between five to 10 years in prison.

Thompson withdrew from the university on Sept. 8, according to a school official. He had been a member of the university’s wrestling team.
