— A Miami Valley Hospital nurse said Tuesday she was assaulted by a patient in the medical center’s bariatric ward, according to a Dayton police report.
The 59-year-old male suspect was told by police he would receive a summons for assault. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.

“The incident involving one of our nurses has been turned over to the Dayton Police Department,” said Sharon Howard, the hospital spokeswoman, in a statement. “Any and all further action will occur as a result of their (DPD) internal processes.”
The nurse told police she entered the room to check on the patient and discovered him on the floor of the room with his left arm still secured to the bed by a restraint a previous nurse applied to him, according to the report.
Additional hospital staff entered the room and, in an attempt to place the patient back into bed, released the arm restraint, according to the report.
The nurse told police that the patient “reached up, grabbed the bottom front of her shirt and pulled her down on top of him,” according to the report.
Other staff then freed the nurse from the patient, who the nurse said appeared ready to strike her or pull her hair, according to the report. The staff then placed the patient in a four-point restraint.
The nurse told police that prior to the incident the suspect said that “he better be released today or he’s gonna do something bad,” according to the report. She also told police that the patient had assaulted a doctor a day prior, but that the doctor did not wish to call police, according to the report.

— The two juveniles among four identified suspects in the Monday ramming of a police cruiser have previous felony cases.
The 16- and 15-year-olds are among four suspected of using a stolen car to hit a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office cruiser on Monday at a Valero gas station at Siebenthaler Avenue and Philadelphia Drive in Harrison Twp.
Juvenile court records obtained by this news organization indicate the 16-year-old’s first serious offense was stealing a golf cart from Madden Golf Course in May 2017.
In the months after that, however, the 16-year-old from Dayton was twice charged with receiving stolen property (both vehicles), breaking and entering and possession of heroin as well as some misdemeanors and violations of electronic home monitoring.
No family members were in court for the 16-year-old on Tuesday, when Montgomery County Juvenile Court Judge Anthony Capizzi told him, “Your record is only 13 pages long. Congratulations.”
The 15-year-old’s felony record cases stretch back to July 2016 — when he was 14 — and include breaking and entering and attempted receiving stolen property as well as misdemeanor obstructing official business. The boy, who had family members in court on Tuesday, already is in treatment court.
Capizzi told them additional charges are likely, especially if investigators determine that one of them was driving a stolen Toyota Corolla involved in the latest incident.
According to the sheriff’s office, as deputies approached the stolen Corolla that was parked in the lot of the Valero, the driver noticed the deputies, got back in the vehicle and sped off, striking the patrol vehicle.
Capizzi entered denials on the teens’ behalf and announced their appointed defense attorneys.
The judge said, “This was a very serious case. It’s not just stealing a car. … Someone stole a car, tried to escape, drove in to a police cruiser to escape and then hit a bunch of other cars. You know that’s going to mean a lot more charges against somebody,” Capizzi said. “I don’t know who the driver was.”
The boys’ next hearing is scheduled for May 3. Both remain in custody. Adults arrested in the case include Sha’King Jones, 19, and Nikeas Jones, 20. Both remain in the Montgomery County Jail.
