Daughter, boyfriend forced to leave father’s home
A 21-year-old man called Kenosha Police at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, saying his girlfriend’s father attacked him.
The man said he was having sex with his 19-year-old girlfriend in the girl’s home on the 1700 block of 70th Avenue when her father burst into the room and began beating him up. The father told police he had simply pounded on the door and demanded that the couple get their things and leave the house.
Because there was no damage to the bedroom door, nothing disturbed in the room, and the 21-year-old had no visible injuries, police thought the father’s story seemed more likely. The 21-year-old and 19-year-old gathered their things and left the house. No complaint was filed.
