BUTNER, N.C. (WNCN) - A Raleigh man has been charged with assaulting a handicapped person at a developmental center in Butner where he worked, according to Danny Roberts, the Town of Butner's public safety chief.
Amadou Kalleh, 42, of Windy Hollow Court, faces one count of felony assault on a handicapped person for an incident that occurred on March 10, Roberts said. Kalleh is accused of kicking a 39-year-old client three times at the Murdoch Developmental Center around 8:30 p.m.
