A 31-year-old woman told police her roommate assaulted her at their apartment in the 2200 block of Parkville Court at 1:30 a.m. Sept. 6.
The victim said she and the roommate, whom she allowed to move in several months ago, were arguing about his presence in the apartment when "he slapped her across the face and then pushed her down to the floor and placed his right elbow into her neck (and) jaw to hold her down while he yelled at her," according to the responding officer. "Once he let her up, she called 911 and he left the apartment."
The police report said the woman "had a discernable mark, redness, to her left neck and jaw area, but refused any medical treatment."
