Central Dispatch received a call at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday from a woman who was screaming, saying she had been assaulted.
The woman then hung up. It was determined she called from the 500 block of Britton Ave.
When deputies arrived they saw the glass was broken out of the front door of the home.
“Glass was all over the floor and couch,” the report states.
The house was searched but there was no one inside so the deputies walked around the outside of the house and no one was found there either.
A neighbor told deputies what type of car the resident drives. All on-duty officers were asked to be on the lookout for the car but it was not found.
A tattoo gun and accessories were found inside the house.
“It appeared the residents had been running a tattoo shop,” the report states.
The person who made the call was not located.

The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending lowering the legal blood alcohol content limit for drivers from .08 percent to .05 percent. They say it will decrease the number of traffic fatalities. Do you agree with this idea?
