Man held in sex assaults

William Jeffery Lomax, 37, was arrested Thursday on a Mesa County Sheriff’s Office warrant listing multiple counts of sexual assault on a child, stemming from allegations raised by a girl that they’d repeatedly had sexual intercourse since she was 11, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. The affidavit specifies three incidents that allegedly happened between May 2006 and May 2007. Lomax is being held at the Mesa County Jail on a $100,000 cash-only bond.

Ten minutes, two tickets


Michael Roybal, 48, was cited Monday on suspicion of trespassing after being contacted and warned about loitering near Walmart, 2881 North Ave., according to a Grand Junction police summons. Officers stopped Roybal approximately 10 minutes after being ticketed at the store when Roybal was spotted urinating in the Walmart parking lot as several patrons drove by, the summons said. He was cited again on suspicion of indecent exposure.

According to the Grand Junction Police Department:

■ Police opened an investigation after two of three occupants in a car fled after crashing into an empty trailer in a parking lot at 733 Horizon Drive, during the pre-dawn hours Sunday. The lone occupant who was contacted by police, Alexandra Buzzetta, 22, was cited on suspicion of false reporting.

■ A woman called deputies Monday to report alleged aggressive behavior from a flagger monitoring a construction zone in the area of 20 and K roads, at one point claiming the flagger was “flipping her off” as she drives through the intersection.
