An Elizabethtown man arrested Wednesday after an alleged assault in his home. According to arrest citations, police were called to a residence late Tuesday night after the victim said she had fallen down stairs and sustained injuries to her head. An officer on scene asked the victim if she had truly fallen, to which to victim eventually said that she had not, and that the suspect, Charles Powers, had allegedly hurt her. The victim later told investigators that Powers had told the victim to stay inside the residence after she had tried to go outside, at one point dragging her back in and allegedly striking her. The victim alleged Powers had then taken an unknown object and struck her in the head, causing it to shatter and injure her. The victim was able to contact police by using Powers’ phone, as hers had been taken. Powers was arrested and charged with assault 2nd degree, unlawful imprisonment, as well as terroristic threatening.
He was lodged in the Hardin county Detention Center.
