Zachary Crawford

A 21-year-old Carroll man on probation for assaulting a woman in Guthrie Center last year was arrested Wednesday for stealing twice from an arcade claw machine at a local laundromat, according to court records.

A surveillance camera recorded Zachary Brody Crawford steal coins and stuffed prizes from the machine on Nov. 17 and 25 at Midwest Coin Laundry, 1205 U.S. Highway 30 West, a criminal complaint alleges.

He is charged with misdemeanor theft, which is punishable by up to 30 days in jail. It’s unclear how the charge will affect his probation.

Before Crawford moved to Carroll, he was accused in September 2018 of making several unwanted sexual advances toward a woman in Guthrie Center and threatening her with a knife, court records show.

Crawford allegedly licked the woman’s leg and face, grabbed her breast and reached up her shorts. 

Crawford allegedly cut himself with a knife and threatened the woman and her boyfriend.

“She was afraid he was going to stab her in the chest and put her left hand up, and Crawford cut her hand,” court records show.

He was arrested for felony assault with intent to commit sexual abuse and faced more than five years in prison but pleaded guilty to an assault charge and was put on probation for two years.
