59-year-old Charles Thomas was involved in a domestic disturbance with his girlfriend, Dawn Rix, at Cooper Ter. on October 29th. Officers were dispatched to Sarah Marsolek’s, Rix’s neighbor, house and spoke with Rix, who stated that Thomas came over to her house to have a couple of beers, and they talked about where they were in terms of their relationship while he showered. Then, a verbal altercation ensued as Thomas began to make abusive comments toward Rix, and she threw a makeup bag over the shower curtain. Thomas exited the shower and pushed Rix from behind, causing her to fall forward into the living room while stating, “You don’t know who you’re fucking messing with.”

Thomas then reportedly grabbed Rix by the collar of her sweater and dragged her down the hallway before letting her go and getting dressed in the bathroom. Rix was picking coins that fell during the altercation and handed them to Thomas before he threw them at her while he stated, “Use this for your rent.” Rix was standing in the front doorway when Thomas told her, “If you don’t move, I’m going to punch you in the face.” Then, Thomas left for work as Rix went to Marsolek’s house. Officers observed injuries consistent with Rix’s story as Marsolek advised them that she called the police on her behalf. Thomas was arrested on October 30th for domestic assault.
