Sedalia police arrest man accused of hitting woman with a baby in her hands

Sedalia police arrested Richard Cramer on Sunday after officers responded to the 1100 block of South Kentucky Avenue for a possible assault.

According to the probable cause statement, a woman told officers she was the victim of domestic assault and showed them her cheek that was red with finger marks and a cut near her ear.

The woman told police that she was trying to leave a residence with a 9-month-old baby in her hands when Cramer would not let her leave. She said he slapped her across the face, knocking her to the ground.

Police said the woman complained that her face was still burning and her left ear was ringing.

Officers said when they responded to Kentucky Avenue, they made contact with Cramer. Cramer looked to be visibly fine and walking normally but started limping when he told officers that the woman stomped on his foot.

Cramer claimed that he would never hit a woman but he did protect himself when the woman became physical with him.

Cramer was charged with domestic assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
