1:38 a.m. On the 2200 block of West Third Street, officers responded to a report of an assault. A man stated he and his wife had gotten into an argument. Another man then came over to break it up and the caller told him to shut up and stay out of his business, at which point he said the man choked him out and threw him against his pickup. Officers determined it was verbal only and both the husband and wife would stay inside the residence.
2:42 a.m. On the 800 block of East Seventh Street, officers responded to a report of domestic violence. A caller reported hearing a girl screaming and a male party beating on her. It happened only for a minute, then the caller saw the male leaving in a silver imported car and described him as a black male with dreadlocks. According to police notes, it appears officers contacted the woman, and learned it was a very heated verbal argument and the man left prior to it becoming physical. No crime was found.
11:14 a.m. At the Bear Valley Inn, officers responded to a report of domestic violence. The caller reported there was a female party locked in the bathroom and a male party was sitting outside. The female was reportedly hurt and wouldn’t respond to the door, while the male had bruises and scratches on him. The situation had reportedly been going on for six hours, and the parties had been yelling at each other. The male party had since calmed down. He declined medical attention. Officers determined mental health issues were involved.
