Deserve better: Deputies refused to allow two juveniles to remain in a Yorkville home after learning one of them told her aunt that her father was beating her mother and had grabbed her brother by his neck, Wednesday. Deputies had to kick the door in to gain entry and found the mother with two black eyes and a broken/dislocated nose. They said she was highly intoxicated and insisted she’d fallen down the steps, though deputies pointed out her black eyes weren’t consistent with a fall and were more in keeping with being hit. Her husband left before deputies arrived. Family members who arrived at the residence said the couple’s young daughter told them he was beating her mother up and dragging her through the house and that they had a recording of the child screaming for it to stop. She also told the family member he’d picked her younger brother up by his throat and threw him. Deputies arranged for the children to stay with their grandmother, for which they were grateful, and are filing charges against him.

Steubenville police

Disturbing: Officers responded to reports of seven to eight shots being fired in the 700 block of North Seventh Street, Tuesday. Evidence of the disturbance was located near the south entrance to Bridgeview Apartments. Detectives are investigating.

Charged: Trey Carlos Jones, 27, 233 Lawson Ave., Steubenville, improper handling of a firearm, Tuesday. Jones has a valid concealed carry permit, but police said his handgun was found on the floor of the car under his feet. They said he told them he tossed the gun on the floor when he was pulled over, which is why they charged him with improperly handling the firearm. Police said they pulled Jones over because a car matching the description of the one he was driving was seen fleeing the scene of the shots fired incident near Bridgeview Apartments.

Snow much fun: Residents in the 13200 block of Oregon Avenue argued over a parking space, Wednesday. Police said a woman told them when she got home, she couldn’t find a space and ended up parking across the street in front of her neighbor’s house, and when he saw her, he told her to move her car to her own side of the street. When she reminded him it was a public street, she said he began shoveling snow onto and under her vehicle. He told police he’d just finished shoveling the space out so his own child could park there, and when his neighbor refused to move her car, he decided to put the snow back where it had been.

No foundation: A report of a shot fired Tuesday in the 1600 block of Roosevelt Avenue yielded no evidence to support the claim, police said. The area was checked, along with a parking lot in the 700 block of Brady Avenue.

Smile for the camera: A Reynoldsburg woman left her cell phone on the counter at the self-checkout at Walmart, Tuesday. Surveillance footage showing a female putting the phone in her purse was provided to detectives.

Booked: Jauquez Jett, 18, 733 Brady Ave., Steubenville, possession of drugs (cocaine) and possession of marijuana. Jett was also cited for failure to signal a turn and no tail lights.

Reported: A juvenile reported a disturbance in the 300 block of Slack Street involving her mother, Wednesday. She told police her mother was being assaulted, but when they got to the location her mother refused to cooperate. She had no visible injuries, police said.

Blocked out: A Claire Avenue resident told police someone known to him is “constantly calling him and harassing him,” Wednesday. He told police he’s blocked the number but wants a report on file.

Cited: Benjamin M. Delguzzi, 36, 431 Union Ave. Steubenville, DUS and leaving the scene of an accident. Delguzzi was cited after a two-vehicle accident in the Kroger parking lot Wednesday, police said; Barrie L. Dillie Jr., 56, 754 Forestview Drive, Wintersville, failure to signal.
