25-year-old Raven Love was charged with domestic assault after she jumped out of bed and started to “slap, shove, and punch” her boyfriend several times after a night of drinking and arguing.
On February 26th, officers responded to a call in reference to a simple assault on Forest Street. John Richter told officers he was involved in an argument after drinking with his girlfriend Raven Love. John stated after they had argued all night, Raven started physically assaulting him by slapping, shoving, and punching him multiple times. Officers noted John had bruises and swelling under his eye. John also declined any medical attention at the time.
Officers then made contact with Raven, who denied physically assaulting John. Officers noted Raven appeared to be intoxicated and a strong odor of alcohol was emitting from her person. Raven reiterated that she did not remember physically assaulting John. Based on the evidence and stories of both parties, officers determined Raven to be the primary aggressor and was placed into custody. John completed a DV Hold Harmless form and lethality screen, but declined to speak over the phone with an advocate.
Raven Love was arrested and charged with Domestic Assault. Her bond was set at $5,000.
