TUPELO – A man who claimed he was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday night has been charged with sexual battery and kidnapping.

Stephen Tucker, 44, told police that he went to meet a woman at a South Gloster motel around 11:50 p.m. Wednesday. Instead, three men rushed out of the bathroom and robbed him of around $300. Tucker was unable to give authorities a good description of the men.

Tucker was detained by police and charged Friday with sexual battery and kidnapping in connection with an incident that happened April 17 at an East Main motel. He is a convicted sex offender in Arkansas.
