Two people each was issued a summons Tuesday and charged with biting and kicking at one another during a domestic dispute.
Officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department responded about 5:40 p.m. to a residence at 300 N. Detroit St. A neighbor contacted police and reported the male and female frequently fought and were currently in another altercation.
When officers arrived, Kimberly Evans, 21, answered the door and told police she didn’t need their help and hadn’t called them. Shortly, Brad Evans, 20, came to the door and told officers he was trying to go to work when his girlfriend began yelling at him.
Statements from both suspects were taken, Ms. Evans said she’d been kicked with a steel-toed boot and had been pinned against a bed.
Mr. Evans told police the woman had bit him on the leg.
Photographs of the injuries were taken, and police issued summonses for domestic violence.
