HUNTINGBURG — A hysterical woman’s call for help Tuesday evening in Huntingburg resulted in a Spencer County man’s arrest on multiple serious felony charges.
Officers with the Huntingburg Police Department responded to the Lincoln Village Apartments, 2010 Lincoln Drive, at 6:19 p.m. after the woman’s report of a domestic incident.
Police said Rogelio Solis Jr., 32, of 493 Vine St., Dale, who has children in common with the female victim, entered her apartment without permission.
Solis, who was intoxicated with a blood alcohol content that later registered .19 percent, battered the female victim and a male friend who was visiting in the apartment with his daughter.
Police said Solis broke a wooden cane over the male victim during their fight and badly injured the man’s eye. Solis then left the apartment prior to law enforcement’s arrival.
A Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputy located Solis north of the Quality Inn hotel. The suspect attempted to flee from the deputy but was apprehended in a field.
Authorities booked Solis into the Dubois County Security Center at 9:45 p.m. on a Class A felony count of burglary, a Class B felony count of aggravated battery, Class D felony counts of domestic battery, residential entry and possession of a Schedule III controlled substance and misdemeanor counts of public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting law enforcement.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted the victims.
