Quincy Police were called to a residence near 4th and Kentucky at 3 a.m. Saturday to investigate a disturbance. Officers interviewed a victim and developed probable cause to arrest a suspect, 51-year-old Marty Owsley, on Domestic Battery charges. Owsley had left the scene, but police located him walking near 8th and Vermont Street around 4:15 p.m. Saturday. Owsley fled on foot and ran into the Family Dollar store at 620 Broadway.
