An EPD officer arrested a 57-year-old man for domestic battery at the Davis CTA station Monday.

A CTA employee alerted the officer, who was outside the station, around 5:30 p.m. a man and woman were arguing inside.

When the officer entered the station, the man began walking away, Dugan said.

The 51-year-old woman told the officer her husband had struck her in the head and arm, which a witness corroborated, Dugan said.

The officer tried to arrest the man, but he refused to be handcuffed. Other officers arrived and the man was taken into custody and taken to the police station.

The man was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. His court date is Oct. 19.
