Barberton Police Officers were called to a home on Stratford Street a little after 11 p.m. Tuesday night. A resident called 911 after a woman knocked on her door asking for help. When officers arrived they found a woman in the street severely beaten wearing a bathrobe. She was crying and extremely upset that her children were still inside the house.
A warrant was issued for, 33 year old, David S. Choate Jr. He was found a short time later inside the house. Officers were forced to break a window to gain entrance where he was arrested without a fight.
The children were unharmed and picked up by a family member. The woman was checked out by paramedics and refused further treatment.
The incident is under investigation and no further information is available.
