By Katherine Wartell

A 31-year-old man reported that his girlfriend allegedly cut his arm while they were arguing Wednesday evening at his residence, resulting in what police called a severe laceration.

Riley County officers arrested Megan Roe, 25, 518 Osage St., Apt. 4, for aggravated battery and domestic battery following a field investigation after the man called the police at about 8:20 p.m., Lt. Josh Kyle said.

Kyle said the man was treated on scene, but received follow-up treatment at Mercy Regional Health Center for his arm.

Roe was released from the Riley County Jail on $2,000 bond.
