Around 2 p.m. Aug. 21 an officer responded to a residence in the 1300 block of 14th Street for a report of battery.

A woman said two days prior her former boyfriend was waiting outside her apartment when she got home.

She said he threw her to the ground and started kicking her in the ribs and dragged her around her apartment.

She said he had previously entered her residence on several occasions, damaging things and ripping posters off the wall.

She said she waited two days to file the report because she was afraid he would retaliate.

The officer noted efforts would be made to speak with the former boyfriend as part of the investigation.

The officer turned the drugs over to an officer assigned to the drug task force.
