The following information was provided by reports filed with the Barboursville Police Department:

BATTERY:A 29-year-old Detroit woman reported she was staying at a hotel in the 3400 block of U.S. 60 last Saturday night when a man hit her in the face, threw her against a wall and began choking her.

The woman said, when she attempted to flee, the man grabbed her hair and threw her against the wall again. The woman said she kicked the man and was able to escape.

The report stated the woman's face and hands showed clear signs of injury, but the woman refused to be treated by emergency medical personnel.

SHOPLIFTING: Officers responded to three reported shoplifting incidents between last Thursday and Monday. Two of the incidents were reported by employees at Macy's at the Huntington Mall, and one incident was reported by employees at J.C. Penney at the mall.

An employee at Macy's reported on Feb. 15 that a 26-year-old Hutnington woman attempted to leave the store without paying for $390 in women's apparel and shoes she concealed in a shopping bag while in a fitting room in the store. Officers issued a citation to the woman.

On Feb. 17, an employee reported a 59-year-old Charleston woman attempted to leave the store without paying for $206.75 in merchandise, including women's apparel and cellphone accessories.
