On 6 Mar 12 a fourteen year old Belpre resident reported being assaulted by her ex-boyfriend, Zac Wilson, age 19,55 Langtree Drive, Pickerington, OH, at her residence that morning.

Also during the argument, two other subjects visiting the home, Sara Hewett, age 27, address unknown, and Thomas D. Lott, age 19, 705 Elm Street Apt. 1, Belpre, repeatedly threatened the victim.
