Hudson Man accused of beating teen

A 17-year-old riding his bicycle in a parking lot off U.S. 19 and Embassy Boulevard was attacked by a man driving a car with the teen's ex-girlfriend inside, authorities say. The victim told deputies that about 4:20 p.m. Aug. 25, the red Chevy Cavalier cut him off and 20-year-old Kevin Joseph Sadlow got out of the driver's seat and beat him with a wooden stick. The teen, who was not identified, suffered serious injuries and possible neurological damage, the Sheriff's Office report said. Sadlow went back to the car, and that's when the teen saw his former girlfriend sitting in the passenger's seat. He later identified Sadlow from a photo lineup. Sadlow, of 7103 Edna Ave. in Hudson, was arrested Monday and charged with aggravated battery. He remained jailed Tuesday in lieu of $10,000 bail.


Boyfriend charged in assault, battery

Joseph Mark Johns, 27, got into an argument late Sunday with his girlfriend of 10 years. Authorities say he pressed a steak knife to her throat, forced her into his Chevy pickup and made her drive. In a parking lot at Buena Vista Lane and Orange Drive, he got upset again and punched her in the face multiple times, according to a Sheriff's Office report. Then he squeezed her throat with his left hand and stuck his right fingers in her mouth, making it impossible for her to breath, the report said. She passed out. Early Monday morning, from a hospital emergency room, she described her ordeal to authorities. Johns, of 4900 Cactus Drive, faces charges of kidnapping, battery by strangulation and aggravated assault. He remained jailed Tuesday with no bail.
