The following report appeared in the most recently released crime blotter by the Belleville Police Department:
6:13 p.m. DOMESTIC BATTERY - 500 block of Longview Drive. The victim, a 52-year-old female, reported getting into an argument with her daughter/suspect, a 26-year-old female, at which time the suspect struck her in the face with her fist. The suspect fled the scene prior to police arrival. The victim signed a refusal to file a complaint form for the battery.
Readers are reminded that an arrest or charge does not constitute a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination. For more police blotter news, read tomorrow's print edition of the Belleville News-Democrat and return to bnd.com.
