A 22-year-old woman told police that a man slammed her head against a bathroom sink when she refused to let him use the toilet early Sunday morning at a home on the 100 block of East Lane Avenue.
According to reports, the woman was at a party when she went inside the bathroom and waited with two other females who were also waiting to use the toilet. Then a man came to the door, saying he was a resident at the house, and demanded that they let him use the toilet.
When the women said they were waiting to use the toilet and refused to let him, he allegedly grabbed one of them by the hair and slammed her head into the sink. The woman said she punched him several times before calling police.
No suspects were arrested in the assault.

He handed over the bag and the robber fled on foot.

Summit Street home burglarized during Halloween party
Residents at a house on the 1500 block of Summit Street reported theft of almost $3,000 in property during a Halloween party they hosted Saturday night.
The two male residents said they kept the door unlocked during the party so friends could come and go freely. They noticed the next morning, though, that someone had stolen two laptop computers, two cell phones, a watch, an Xbox 360 and numerous video games.
The men say they don’t think any of their guests stole the property, as they were all friends.
