An 18-year-old woman told Columbus police she was assaulted by a drunken man in the 2700 block of Martin Road at 8 a.m. Jan. 26.
In a report filed almost 24 hours later, the victim said she was at the location with her son the previous morning when the "suspect showed up intoxicated."
He proceeded to grab her by the throat and push her down, the woman said. The suspect had departed before officers arrived.
"Victim wanted to make sure the incident was documented," the responding officer noted in the report.
