Police boss under internal review for handling of domestic violence case

RICHFIELD, OH (WOIO) -

A Richfield Police Sergeant is facing internal punishment for how he handled a domestic violence call.

It happened in the middle of one night last month at the Motel 6.

Chief Keith Morgan says he's weighing punishment against Sergeant Nick Kostandaras.

A woman called about boyfriend-girlfriend trouble complaining her keys had been stolen. She also said she had been beaten.

The chief says the woman didn't want to press charges but no police report was ever made. So there were no witness statements and no photos.

Then, we're told Kostandaras was questioned by superiors about it, and he made a report, but the report included no information about violence.

We left a message for the sergeant through the department, but did not receive a call back.
