10/25 Couple Arrested on Dual Domestic Violence Charges

Washington County Sheriff deputies responded to a residence in the Town of Addison Wednesday night for a welfare check of a 29 year old female at the request of a relative. The Initial information received was that the female had been struck in the face by a 34 year old male causing her to bite her lip. While in route officer took a 911 hang up call from the female.  Upon arrival, deputies could hear a disturbance noise coming from inside, an attempted forced entry was performed. Prior to the door being forced open, the female was seen running towards the door holding a knife. The Deputies ordered her to drop knife. She eventually did outside. A quick conversation revealed that the man was upstairs and a threat of harming a 15 month old child becomes known or a possibility. Deputies attempted to enter the upstairs of the duplex but noticed the door was heavily secured and barricaded. The man came to open a window and spoke with deputies.  He advised them that everything was okay with the child and that it was the woman who was troubled. As he continued to speak with Deputies, he showed them that the child was safe. Eventually he opened the door. Deputies are a bit confused as initially it is difficult to determine a true and accurate story.  It was determined that both people appeared to be at fault. A dual arrest was done. The man was taken in on a parole violation along with charges of battery/domestic violence and disorderly conduct/domestic violence.  The woman was arrested on charges of battery Domestic Violence and disorderly conduct while armed with a weapon.
