Indianapolis man charged with battery

An Indianapolis man was arrested after police said he forced his way into a Greenwood home, threw an acquaintance against a counter and took her phone.

William Ramsey, 29, was arrested on charges of criminal confinement, intimidation, domestic battery, driving while suspended, burglary and residential entry.

A woman told police that Ramsey forced his way past her into a home in the 300 block of Boonesboro Road at about 5 a.m. Wednesday, a Greenwood Police Department report said.

The woman, who said she had previously dated Ramsey, asked him to leave and he refused. The woman said that Ramsey told her he was looking for her phone and tablet to delete evidence she could use against him, the report said.

When the woman asked Ramsey to leave again, he grabbed her and threw her against a counter and forced a rag in her mouth, the report said. She was able to get away and told Ramsey her co-worker would be at the home soon, the report said.

Ramsey left the house with the woman’s cellphone and was stopped by police and arrested.

Ramsey, 506 S. Graham Ave., was taken to the Johnson County jail where he was held on $70,800 bond.
