On Monday, December 19 at 5:54 PM, officers from the Fond du Lac Police Department responded to the area of 367 N. Peters Avenue in response to a complaint that a man was assaulting a woman. When officers arrived they determined that both the man and the woman were inside an apartment but would not answer the door.
