Keith Allen Mitchell, 48, remains at the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center without bail after he was arrested on April 30 in Newnan with the help of Coweta County sheriff’s deputies.
Brittany Duncan, spokesperson with the Woodstock Police Department, said Mitchell has been charged with four counts of rape, three counts of aggravated sodomy, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of false imprisonment, aggravated assault, possession of a knife while committing a felony against a person, burglary, cruelty to children in the third degree and theft by taking.
According to a Woodstock police incident report, the woman was in her upstairs bedroom talking on her cellphone with her friend around 5:30 p.m. on April 28. The woman said while she was on the phone, Mitchell, who she said was her ex-boyfriend, came out of her bedroom closet holding a serrated knife taken from her kitchen, the report stated.
The woman said she screamed and dropped her cellphone and her son came upstairs to check on her.
She said Mitchell placed the knife down on a table and walked to her bathroom and closed the door.
Mitchell returned and the woman said he forced her to have sexual intercourse four times, according to the report.
The woman said Mitchell allegedly told her he had been hiding out at her house since April 26, adding that he slept in her backyard and under a pool table inside the garage.
The report also states the woman said Mitchell did not tell her how he gained access to the house and she had no knowledge that he was in the house.
The report indicates Mitchell allegedly forced the woman to cook dinner and said she said she remained calm “because she was in survival mode.”
After the alleged incident, the woman said she drove Mitchell to Atlanta where she dropped him off at a MARTA station in Atlanta.
The woman informed officers she dated Mitchell for about a month and “she began feeling uneasy around Mitchell.”
She also said she broke off the relationship and Mitchell allegedly threatened to come to her place of employment.
The woman said she had previously filed a report with Woodstock police earlier in April regarding Mitchell.
The woman on April 5 called Woodstock police to report harassing phone calls she said Mitchell was allegedly making on her home and cell.
The report, released on Wednesday by the Woodstock Police Department, noted the woman said Mitchell repeatedly called both phones and he threatened to talk to her employer and commit suicide if she stopped communicating with him.
While speaking with the woman, the officer said in his report Mitchell called the woman.
The officer said “I spoke with him, directing him not to attempt to have or make any contact” with the woman again.
The officer also said Mitchell was “not too happy with my telling him not to speak” with the woman and “became very defensive” when he told him the woman didn’t want to have any contact with her.
She also said Mitchell had shown up to her place of employment in Roswell and she had to get the Roswell Police Department involved.
The woman was taken to the hospital for observations and police later learned Mitchell had active warrants out of Florida.
