Tuesday morning before 9, Columbia Police responded to a report of a domestic assault that occurred in the parking lot of the Columbia Mall. Police searched the area but said they could not find the car.

Just before 2 p.m., officers responded to a trespassing call at Break Time, 4105 W. Vawter School Rd. Officers report the two people reported for trespassing matched the description of the two people at the mall this morning.

Officers located the suspect vehicle near the 500 block of East Nifong and attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the vehicle fled.
