On 23 Oct 11 Deputy Sheriff Simmons arrested Jeremiah J. Lyons, age 29, 121 Elm Street, Davisville, WV, for assault. Along with his girlfriend and her two children, Mr. Lyons was visiting a residence on Mitchell’s Lane in Marietta when the incident occurred.

At some point Mr. Lyons slapped the eleven year old multiple times and inflicted a bloody nose.

On 23 Oct 11 Thomas W. Woodford, age 57, 3315 Blue Knob Road, Marietta, reported when he approached his truck to depart for work he noticed the center pane of the truck’s rear window was shattered. Upon further inspection, Mr. Woodford observed a CD/DVD player from a computer stuck between the truck’s windshield and dash and additional cracks in the windshield.

On 23 Oct 11 Richard McMahan, age 71, 170 McMahan Road, New Matamoras, reported at some point during the past two weeks an unknown suspect(s) stole scrap metal and oil jack equipment from a shed on his mother’s property on State Route 7 in Independence Township.

On 23 Oct 11 an anonymous caller reported a suspect with active warrants was inside his nearby home. John L. Clark, age 40, 1685 Wynncrest Drive, Marietta, fled on foot when Deputies attempted to arrest him on a felony warrant the previous week and departed his residence prior to the arrival of Deputies. En route to the residence, Deputies Mankins and Metts observed Mr. Clark approaching in his vehicle and blocked the roadway. Mr. Clark drove around the cruiser, through a yard and continued on Wynncrest toward State Route 550. The Deputies followed and patrolled the surrounding area but were unable to locate Mr. Clark. Consequently, Deputy Metts requested a warrant for Mr. Clark for failure to comply with the order/signal of an officer.

On 23 Oct 11 the Warren Fire Department transported Brandon Walters, age 29, 718 Greene Street, Marietta, to Marietta Memorial Hospital for treatment to burns on his hands and forearms.

In a statement given at the hospital Mr. Walters said he was unsure how the fire started but he said it was possible that he was smoking at the time.
