NORFOLK, Va. (NPD) – Norfolk Police have arrested a man on charges stemming from a sexual assault investigation and are continuing to investigate two undetermined deaths.
During their investigation of the undetermined deaths, Detectives discovered criminal activity unrelated to either investigation that has resulted in the arrest of, 43-year-old Michael Nse Eyo Ebong. Ebong has been charged with rape, object sexual penetration, and abduction.
On November 15, 2020, around 8:30 a.m. Norfolk Police responded to the 1200 block of Hillside Avenue for the report of an unresponsive woman. When police arrived, they located a 36-year-old woman. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.
