October 09, 1998

A Westminster man accused of biting his wife's face was held yesterday at the county jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.

Dean R. Carver, 48, was charged with one count of second-degree assault against his wife, Norma Carver, according to police.

Police found Norma Carver with a swollen red cheek outside an apartment in the 100 block of Pennsylvania Ave. after responding to a domestic dispute Wednesday evening. The suspect was not home at the time, but he was arrested about three hours later after police found him in the basement.

15 bicycles stolen but most recovered, police say

Most of about 15 bicycles stolen in the Westminster area since Sept. 1 have been recovered and returned to owners, Westminster police said.

Lt. Dean Brewer said it appears that juveniles seeking a joy ride, or an easy commute, take advantage of those who leave bicycles unattended and unlocked.

Officers often find the bikes discarded and recognize them from descriptions given at roll call, he said.
