5:30 p.m. – Police received a call about a possible domestic incident in the driveway of an Adams Street residence. The caller said a man had kicked a pregnant woman in the stomach. No one was around when officers arrived at the scene, but neighbors told them the man had been running into the woman’s car with his vehicle. The woman was able to get into her apartment but the man kicked her through the open door, the neighbors said. The two went into the apartment and neighbors said they heard banging and screaming. The woman left the apartment holding her arm and crying, got into her vehicle and left, they said. The neighbors said they took in the two children who lived in the apartment. Police searched the surrounding area but were unable to find the man. They did find several empty bottles and cans of alcohol in the house, shattered glass on the kitchen floor, furniture overturned and broken and the back door open. The woman later called dispatch and asked why police were at her home. She was told of the domestic report but claimed nothing had happened.
