Wednesday, Dec. 26

1 a.m. — Andrew S. Harris, 43, Elyria, arrested and charged with domestic violence. Harris’ girlfriend, who police said had bruising and red marks on her arms and a cut on her nose, said he had accused her of infidelity, grabbed her by her arms and threw her around her apartment in the 500 block of Georgetown Avenue and repeatedly struck her in the face. Police said Harris, who they said has two domestic violence convictions, told police his girlfriend has beaten him up several times in the 18 months they’ve been together, but he was too embarrassed to report it. While a witness said Harris forced his way into the apartment, Harris denied it, and said any injuries to the girlfriend were from him defending himself.
