On Sunday, January 12, 2020 at approximately 10:00 p.m., a female entered her residence on the 1500 block of Princess Street to find a male inside her home. An altercation ensued and the suspect male is alleged to have physically prevented the female from leaving the home. The suspect and victim are known to each other.
