Jefferson County sheriff
Bizarre: A 17-year-old male told hospital personnel he was thrown from a vehicle on U.S. 250 around Harrisville, Thursday. Nurses said he also told them he was worried about his girlfriend, who he said had been kidnapped by the same people who assaulted him. Deputies learned Smithfield township police had originally responded to the call, which initially was reported as an overdose, and said the youth was “very impaired and not making sense” when they spoke with him.
Argument: An Island Creek township woman told deputies she and her partner argued and the other woman threatened to come back and kill her, Thursday. Her partner returned to the residence to retrieve some of her belongings and, before going to a hotel, told deputies that while they had argued, the other woman makes things up. Deputies were forced to return to the residence a short time later when the original caller told them her partner had entered the garage to return a key. Since the other woman had established residency, police told her the woman has as much right to the residence as she does and if she didn’t like it, she’d have to initiate eviction proceedings in court.
Damaged: The rear window of a vehicle parked at the Jefferson County JVS was broken, Thursday. School personnel reviewed the video feed and told deputies the car was fine at 9:34 a.m., but roughly a minute later the rear window had a large hole in it.
Booked: Niki Jo Delaney, 35, 1595 Tweed Ave., Steubenville, failure to appear on three counts of endangering children, Thursday. Cinque Lee Reed, 40, 149 Lovers Lane, Steubenville, warrant for failure to appear on a driving under suspension charge.
Pushed: An Estelle Avenue resident told police her son shoved her against her garage, Thursday. She said she’d picked him up downtown “and the whole ride home…he was out of control and yelling” and shoved her when she was walking inside the house. A third individual who witnessed the man’s treatment of his mother said to protect her, he jumped in and began fighting with him. She said when she reached for her phone to call for help, her son fled on foot.
Lost and found: Police said a shopper lost a bag of crack at a local market, Thursday. The bag was found by an employee sweeping the floor, who turned it over to police.
Deer John: A deer ran into the side of a northbound vehicle on John Scott Highway, Thursday. Police said the animal broke a door handle and left a dent and a lot of fur on the driver side of the vehicle before running into Jim Woods Park.
Vandalism: Someone threw a brick through the window of a North Fourth Street business, Thursday.
Booked: Manuel M. Mallicone, 32, Orpha Ave., Weirton, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of hypodermic needles, Thursday. Police were dispatched to a downtown gas station after a caller reported possible illegal activity in the men’s room. Once there, police allege they found eight hypodermic needles and a burnt spoon in Mallicone’s sweatshirt pocket.
Angry: A Pennsylvania Avenue resident said she and a family member were getting in their car when a neighbor came onto their property, screaming at them and recording them on her cell phone, Thursday.
