–A Houston woman said a man had assaulted her at her U.S. 63 residence. The woman told an investigating officer that she and her boyfriend had argued that day and that 45 minutes later she heard someone open the door to her home.

She described the man as about 5-9, in his mid-20s, having a medium complexion and having dirty blond hair.
–A Bucyrus woman was arrested for second-degree burglary and stealing under $500 after she reportedly broke into a man’s home on Highway B in Houston and stole money and alcoholic beverages.
After discovering that his home had been broken into and calling in the incident, the man told an investigating officer that he suspected a 21-year-old woman.
An officer located her, and she produced the stolen goods that had been placed in her vehicle.
The stolen items included $32 in cash, two bottles of liquor and two open boxes of beer cans.
