Police: Tampa man accused of sexual battery after family tries to hide him

TAMPA — Police arrested a man Sunday accused of sexually battering an 18-year-old woman and said his family tried to hide him.

Eugene Larry Noah, 33, was staying the night at his girlfriend's house when Tampa police said he sexually battered the other woman while she slept. Noah is a registered sex offender, police said.

When Noah's girlfriend, Nekuana Sessions, found out the victim was alerting authorities, she drove the victim away from the house and came back to give false statements to officers, police said.

Officers then went to Noah's home at 4400 N Branch Ave., where his brother, Harvey Noah, told officers that Noah was not home, police said. A subsequent search of the house led officers to find Noah hiding under the brother's bed, police said.

Police arrested the brother on charges of obstructing a law enforcement officer. He was released a few hours later on $500 bail. Sessions was arrested and charged with accessory to the sexual battery. She was released Sunday evening on $9,500 bail.

Noah is charged with sexual battery and violation of probation. He is being held in the Orient Road Jail without bail.
