SHOPLIFTING, ASSAULT: One man was arrested on multiple charges Sunday in the 700 block of Huddleston Avenue in Barboursville after allegedly shoplifting and assaulting officers when they attempted to apprehend him.

Donald Ray Davis II, 30, was booked at Western Regional Jail at 11:30 p.m. Sunday.

According to the police report, Davis attempted to sell some items at Plato’s Closet in Barboursville, leaving his name, address and phone number, then allegedly took a pair of shoes off the shelf and placed them on his feet and concealed his own shoes in his pants and exited the store.

The report states police located Davis at his residence hiding in a closet.
