More Criminal Domestic Violence
A Union man was arrested for allegedly pushing and cursing a woman.
Calvin Sherone Stevens, 31, 221 Lawson Ave., was charged by the public safety department with disorderly conduct and criminal domestic violence.
The incident report stated that an officer was called to 1072 W. Main St. Friday morning in reference a domestic disturbance.
The victim said she’d gotten up early that morning and took her daughter to Stevens’ home so he could go with the child on a field trip. She said Stevens is her ex-boyfriend and her daughter’s father.
When she dropped her daughter off, the victim said she told Stevens he could use her car when he took their daughter on a field trip because the heat worked better than in his car. She told Stevens that when he brought her home had to return her car.
The victim said Stevens arrived at her home with the daughter around 11:30 a.m. She said she had a male visitor, who she said was a relative of Stevens, in her home when they arrived.
As Stevens entered her home, the victim said he saw his relative leaving out the back door. She said the relative did so to avoid a possible fight.
The victim said Stevens ran out the front door and around the side of the building looking for his relative. She said he reentered the building through the back and began pushing her about the body and shoving her in the face with his hands. The woman said she told Stevens that if he kept pushing her she would call the police. She said Stevens, using an obscenity, told her to call the police.
When she went outside to get the keys to her car, the victim said Stevens began shoving her again, causing her to stumble. She said Stevens also began shouting profanities. The victim said she then walked over to where a maintenance man was working, told him of the situation and asked for his help in getting Stevens to leave. She said when the maintenance man showed up, Stevens left in her car and drove away, continuing to shout profanities.
The officer issued the victim a victim’s advocate form. He then left to go and speak with Stevens about the incident.
When he arrived, the officer was told by Stevens that when he went to the victim’s residence to drop off their child and saw his relative leaving, he became angry and did act in a disorderly manner. He denied pushing the victim.
Stevens was arrested and taken to jail. He was also issued a trespassing notice for the trailer park where the victim lives.
After Smith was taken to jail, the victim came to his residence and retrieved her car.
