Friday afternoon at 2:59, officers worked on an assault that had occurred on Thursday, January 18, 2023. The victim was assaulted in her home in the 800 block of S. Main by a live-in partner. The suspect had struck the victim in the face with a closed fist, causing her to fall into a television, which then fell on top of the victim, trapping her beneath it. The victim received severe facial and head injuries and had not reported the incident due to being still living with the suspect and fearing further violence. The victim was moving out on the date of the report and wished to file charges and obtain a protective order. The investigation will continue.
Officers made 63 traffic stops, arrested 13 adults, and answered 241 calls for service over the weekend ending Sunday, February 4.
