Law enforcement report

¢ Lawrence Police arrested a 40-year-old Lawrence man Saturday afternoon on a charge of sexual battery after a disturbance at the Lawrence Community Shelter, 214 W. 10th St.

Sgt. Michael Monroe, a police spokesman, said staff members asked the man to leave the shelter after he caused a disturbance, but the man became upset and inappropriately grabbed a female staff member. The man also had two unrelated warrants out for his arrest, and he was booked into jail at 5:30 p.m.

¢ Lawrence Police arrested a Lawrence man Saturday night on suspicion of making a criminal threat and domestic battery outside of Rick's Place, 846 Ill., said Sgt. Michael Monroe, a police spokesman.
