On April 21st, Greensburg Police Department Officer Mitchel Tuttle was dispatched to a residence on W Sheridan Street on a report of a possible domestic incident. When he arrived on the scene, he made contact with the alleged victim. The victim reported that she had attempted to leave the residence due to an argument with a man identified as Craig Carter. According to the police report, Carter had pushed and pulled the victim back into the residence to prevent her from leaving. Carter reportedly took the keys to the victim's car and a woman had obtained the victim's cell phone. Carter is said to have taken the victim's money as well.

Officer Tuttle made contact with Carter and a woman who claimed that Carter had not touched the victim. Carter admitted that an argument took place and that he took the keys because one of the keys was for a storage locker paid for by Carter. A witness reported that she told Carter to return all of the victim's belongings so the victim could leave. The witness stated that a physical incident did not take place during the argument. Due to conflicting stories and witness statements, a report for investigation was issued to all parties.

The victim came to the police station on April 22nd to have photographs taken of the marks on her body from the previous night. Multiple attempts were made to interview Carter and the witness with no success. The original body camera from Officer Chris Bridges was used for the report.

Officer Tuttle made contact with the victim again on May 18th and advised her that he was waiting for Carter's written report. The victim provided a statement consistent with the original report. She added that Carter also punched her in the leg during the incident, creating the bruises shown in the photos. Carter was later arrested.

Craig Carter, 29 of Greensburg, faces allegations of robbery (a Level 5 felony) and criminal confinement (a Level 6 felony). He also faces Class A misdemeanor charges of battery and interference with reporting crime. He was charged in Circuit Court on June 4th.

Under the law, criminal charges are merely accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
