A Wyoming, Ohio man appeared inHillsboro Municipal Court Monday on first-degree misdemeanor charges of theft and assault.

According to an affidavit filed with the court, a Highland County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to a report of an assault at a Highland Trails residence on Sept. 14.

At that time, he met with the alleged victim who “was getting home from Highland District Hospital after being checked out from being assaulted earlier in the day,” the affidavit stated.

The alleged victim reportedly told the deputy that at around 2 p.m. she was sitting on the porch when Robert T. Booth, 26, “showed up at her residence,” according to the affidavit. The affidavit added that she said Booth “has a no contact order against him.”

She reported that after telling Booth to leave multiple times she went inside. Booth allegedly followed her “and kicked her door in,” the affidavit stated. He then allegedly “proceeded to take (her) TV then came back in to try and take more of her property,” the affidavit added.

The alleged victim reported that she then said she was going to call the sheriff’s office and returned to the porch. At that time, “they began to argue and … Booth grabbed (her) by her left arm and threw her off the porch,” according to the affidavit.

Booth then reportedly left the property. After the alleged victim called for an ambulance and Booth allegedly returned and “started causing problems again until he was asked to leave by one of the squad members,” the affidavit states.

Court records show that a warrant was issued for Booth’s arrest on Sept. 21. He appeared on that warrant Monday and was arraigned on charges of assault and theft.

According to records, pretrials for Booth’s cases are scheduled for Oct. 30. His bond is set at his own recognizance (OR). While his case is pending, Booth is to have no contact with the alleged victim. He must also observe a curfew and is prohibited from driving, records add.
