Anthony Phillips, 34, Shiocton, is charged with battery and disorderly conduct as acts of domestic abuse and with misdemeanor bail jumping.
On Oct. 23, New London Police officers Ben Schmidt and Ryan Gloe were dispatched to a home on Oshkosh Street in response to a domestic complaint.

When the officers cleared the house, they reported finding Phillips in a bedroom closet.
Schmidt reported the woman was bleeding behind one of her ears.
At the hospital, the woman told Schmidt that Phillips had been drinking and became angry and aggressive.
