An intoxicated woman accused her boyfriend of hitting her in the face and shoving her and her adult daughter out of his apartment.
The woman said she and her alleged assailant have been dating for six months. Though she does not live with the man, she has a key to his Second Street apartment.
According to the woman, she and the man had been at the American Legion earlier on the evening of the alleged assault. The woman said her boyfriend got drunk and went home. Later, when the woman went to his apartment, she and the man had an argument which reportedly ended with a physical confrontation.
The adult daughter said she was sleeping on the sofa when she was awakened by the argument between her mother and her mother’s boyfriend. The daughter did not see the man hit her mother and said she and her mother were not pushed, but walked out the door on their own accord.
When interviewed by police, the boyfriend denied the woman’s allegations. Though he admitted drinking at the legion that evening, the man said he went home not because he was drunk but because someone got into a fight at the Legion and he did not want any trouble since he is on parole.
The man said he had been home for some time when his girlfriend knocked on his door. The man let the woman and her daughter enter his apartment. According to the man, his girlfriend was drunk and wanted to have sex. When he refused, the woman allegedly pulled down her pants and yelled at him to have intercourse with her.
Though her daughter was sleeping on the sofa at the time, the woman reportedly yelled several times for the man to have sex with her. The commotion woke the daughter who escorted her mother out of the apartment.
The boyfriend said he thought his girlfriend would go home and “sober up,” but, knowing she had a key to the apartment, he went out the back window to avoid having to deal with her while she was intoxicated.
Due to conflicting stories from both sides, no charges were filed.
