From Abilene Police Department spokesman George Spindler:
At about 2 p.m. Tuesday, Officer David Humber responded to a disturbance in-progress call at a residence in the 500 block of North Bowie Drive. APD dispatch had been contacted by a female subject alleging she had been assaulted. Officers arrived on scene and observed a male subject pushing the female subject. Both parties were contacted and the preliminary investigation revealed that the female subject was assaulted during an altercation. The victim alleged she had also been shoved down to the floor and drug to the bedroom by the male subject – her husband. The male subject was arrested for misdemeanor Assault Family Violence.
At about 11:10 p.m. Tuesday, Officer Jordan Brown contacted a male pedestrian for a traffic violation in the 600 block of N. Bowie Drive; the subject was walking on the wrong side of the roadway. Officer Brown's initial attempts to identify the subject left him suspicious because the subject took an extremely long time before providing a name and date of birth. The subject also took a long time to respond when Officer Jordan asked the man his age. A records check confirmed the subject's real identity and that the subject had two arrest warrants, one for 1st-degree felony Possession Cocaine with Intent to Deliver in a Drug-Free Zone. The other warrant was also drug-related. The subject was arrested for his warrants. A search of the subject revealed a small quantity of marijuana. The subject was also booked for two misdemeanor offenses: Failure to Identify and Possession of Marijuana.
At about 1:50 a.m. Wednesday, Officer Joe Plato responded to an alarm activation at a business in the 3100 block of North 1st Street. APD dispatch received notification of the alarm from an alarm company who advised that the alarm indicated glass breakage. As Officer Plato converged to the business, he observed a male subject running and contacted the subject in the 200 block of Briarwood Street, less than one block from the affected business. Officers arrived at the business to find a doorway that had been forcibly entered. Officer Plato's preliminary investigation revealed that the subject had a bloody left hand and broken glass particles on his person and on the bottom of his shoes. Officer Plato also recovered stolen money located near this subject. The subject was arrested for felony Burglary of a Building. This investigation continues.
