The offender was located walking away from the apartment and was detained. The offender restricted detention and was issued a citation for obstructing official business.

JUVENILE COMP: Officers were dispatched to the 100 block of West Main Street in reference to a missing juvenile/unruly juvenile. The father advised his 16 year old daughter did not get off the bus with his other children. School security footage showed the juvenile went with a friend on a different bus. The parents of the friend confirmed the juvenile had gone to their house. The father advised he wanted to press charges on his daughter for being unruly, as he did not give his daughter permission to go to her friend’s house. The juvenile was given a copy of her citation.

ASSAULT: Officers were dispatched to the 200 block of W. Main Street in reference to a welfare check on Joseph Egan. Through investigation, it was determined that Egan was going to be transported to the Dayton VA Hospital. He was placed into handcuffs, but grew very agitated and kept lunging at officers. He was turned around so an officer could place a coat over his shoulders, and when Egan saw the other officer, he lunged at him and stated he was going to get it. Egan then brought his knee up and struck the officer in the groin causing minor pain. He was forced to the ground by all officers until he complied and stopped trying to assault the officers. He was transported to the jail.
