Toledo man indicted for domestic violence

A central Toledo man accused of beating his former girlfriend earlier this month was indicted by a Lucas County grand jury yesterday on felony assault and domestic violence charges.

He was being held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond.

Derrick Parker, 20, of 513 Belmont Ave. was accused of assaulting Elizabeth Gatton, with whom he has a son, at the Belmont address during an argument on the evening of July 5.

He is accused of throwing Miss Gatton, 17, into a glass window, causing part of her body to go through it, and then punching her several times in the face, according to a police report.
