LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A Lincoln County man is facing a number of charges including sexual assault and kidnapping in connection with an incident that occurred over the weekend.

On February 15, 2021 deputies were dispatched to a residence on Barsdale Lane, Lincolnton, NC after a woman ran to a residence and asked the occupant to call 9-1-1 because she was being held against her will. She remained with the caller until officers arrived on the scene.

The victim told deputies that she had gone to the residence of Randy Rinck Sr. at 2166 Barsdale Lane, Lincolnton, NC on Saturday night to visit. While together she told officers she and Rinck went riding around and during that time Rinck began drinking alcohol and started assaulting the victim. When they returned to the residence Rinck threatened her with a knife and refused to let her leave.

He continued to assault her during the weekend which resulted in two black eyes and small cuts on her body. During the assaults, a sexual offense occurred. The victim was able to escape to a neighbor’s house on Monday, February 15, 2021 where law enforcement was contacted.

Lead investigator J. Talbott charged Randy Rinck Sr., 61, of 2166 Barsdale Lane, Lincolnton, NC with first degree kidnapping, first degree sex offense, felony restraint, assault on a female and assault with a deadly weapon.
