Acting on a call from a concerned neighbor, Washington Township Police responded at 7:40 p.m. Thursday to 8312 State Route 366, Russells Point, regarding the return of a man barred from the trailer park.

Joseph Haas, 57, of Greenup, Ky., was charged Sept. 14 by the Logan County Sheriff’s Office with felonious assault and aggravated menacing after seriously injuring his former girlfriend, Danielle Smith, 44, at her Lot 26 home.

Neighbors fearing for the woman’s safety Thursday called to report Mr. Haas had returned. Police converged on the home where Ms. Smith denied Mr. Haas was inside, but officers found him hiding between a bed and a wall.

Both were reportedly intoxicated and each was charged with obstruction of official police business and falsification, then lodged in the Logan County Jail.
