Scioto County Sheriff David Thoroughman states that his office received a 911 call from a female at 2:06 a.m. on Tuesday, January 30, 2024. The caller stated that her ex-boyfriend just kicked in her door in the 900 block of Main St., Portsmouth, Ohio. The female went on to report that the male had sliced her tires with a knife after assaulting people at the residence. He then forced another female, with a small child, into a car to drive him away from the area.

Sheriff Thoroughman stated that Deputy Kade Conley responded to this location and collected

information for a report and searched the area the suspect was reported to be heading towards.

Portsmouth. Deputy Conley activated his emergency lights to make a traffic stop and the vehicle pulled over in the area of Subway, located in the 2900 block of Gallia Street.

Sheriff Thoroughman stated that the male suspect was in the passenger-side of the vehicle and the female driver was crying and very upset. Deputy Conley gave an order for the suspect to exit the vehicle and advised him that he was being detained. The suspect did not comply and a second order was given. The suspect then exited the vehicle and began physically resisting the deputy. Deputy Conley was able to get one handcuff on the suspect at which time the suspect attempted to punch the deputy. During the struggle the two fell against the cruiser, causing damage, then landed on the ground. The suspect continued to resist, attempting to flee. The deputy was able to detain him on the ground until backup arrived to assist getting him cuffed and into the patrol vehicle.

Sheriff Thoroughman reported that both the suspect and deputy were taken to Southern Ohio Medical Center for treatment and both were treated and released.

Sheriff Thoroughman would like to thank the New Boston Police Department, the Portsmouth Police and Fire Departments whom all assisted during this incident.

Sheriff Thoroughman stated that this is still an ongoing investigation which could result in more

charges being presented to the Scioto County Grand Jury on a later date.
