Man convicted of Galloway sexual assault sentenced to 18 years in prison

A man convicted of the sexual assault of a Galloway Township inside her home was sentenced to 18 years in prison Friday.
Patric Reed-Price, 28, was found guilty of sneaking into the home of the woman before 10 p.m. July 10, 2015, and waiting for her to come home. He then threatened the victim with a knife and sexually assaulted her.
Police were called to the home for the report of a disturbance, and heard the woman screaming.
Both were found inside, and Reed-Price, who lives in Newark, was arrested on outstanding warrants from another jurisdiction.
A jury convicted Reed-Price of aggravated sexual assault while armed with and threatening to use a weapon, terroristic threats, criminal trespass, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and witness tampering.
Superior Court Judge Bernard DeLury sentenced him Friday to 18 years in prison. He must serve at least 85 percent — or 15 years, three months and 18 days — before he is eligible for parole.
