Elizabeth City police have arrested and charged man with the kidnapping and assault of a real estate agent who was showing him a property.

Nathaniel Jonathan Cox, 20, of the 800 block of Burgoyne Court, Fayetteville, is charged with second-degree kidnapping and assault on a female, a press release from city police states. Cox is registered as a student at Elizabeth City State University.

Police said they received a call Wednesday about 5:08 p.m. that a woman had been assaulted while showing a man a rental property at 906 Riverside Avenue. According to the press release, the woman said the man inappropriately touched her and grabbed her arm on multiple occasions. The woman was not injured in the attack and the man left the scene before police arrived.

Coleen Curtis, executive officer of the Albemarle Area Association of Realtors, said she had not spoken directly with the agent — an association member — who was attacked, but said the association’s president has.

According to Curtis, the agent said she met the man accused of attacking her at her office. The man claimed he was working with a group looking to invest $25 million in investment properties in the area. The agent decided to show the man a property on Riverside Avenue and had him follow her there, and it was once they were in the house that the man told the agent he was a male porn star, she said.

Not only did the man grab the agent numerous times, he also tried to block her from leaving the house, Curtis said. Curtis was not sure how the agent managed to get away from the man.

“She’s very upset and shook up by this, but thank God she was not physically harmed,” Curtis said.

The association offers safety-related information and programs. The group plans to talk about Realtor safety during its upcoming membership meeting and plans to make available to its members a self-defense course at the beginning of April, she said.
