October 28, 2019–11:30 a.m.


A 24-year old Rome man is facing 20 felony and misdemeanor charges, the most serious being rape, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of aggravated assault, armed robbery, child molestation, and 1st and 3rd-degree cruelty to children.

According to Floyd County Jail records, the charges against Travonte Jayrell Trammell of a Beverly Drive address stem from three incidents.

On Sunday, Trammell allegedly abducted a juvenile under the age of 16, threatened her with a firearm and raped her.

He also tried to drown the victim in a bathtub and choked her until she passed out, according to police.

Trammell then resisted arrest and had to be subdued by force.

Back on July 15, Trammell allegedly took the victim into his home, held her against her will, and had sex with her before throwing a cell phone at the girl and threatening to kill her.

He then took the victim’s phone and fled the scene before law enforcement arrived.

On November 10 of 2018, Trammell struck a different victim with a cell phone and his fists and refused to let her leave the apartment.

A young child saw Trammell drag the woman into a room and strike her.

Trammell also snatched the victim’s cell phone and threw it against a wall.

Trammell is also charged with two counts of battery, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, felony and misdemeanor obstruction of officers, two counts of statutory rape, criminal trespass, false imprisonment, terroristic threats and acts, and misdemeanor theft by taking.
