Springfield Police Division officers were called to a home in the 400 block of North Belmont Avenue at about 10:20 p.m. Monday night about a possible domestic incident, according to a police report.

Upon arrival, officers immediately noticed a woman at the home had a large bump on her forehead and smalls cut above her right eye and on her right shoulder, the report said. The woman told police she and Moten began fighting when he arrived home from work. He then allegedly began throwing things, including a flat screen TV that bounced off of the wall, hitting her in the head and the shoulder. The woman told police she lost consciousness for a few minutes as Moten allegedly continued to throw things in another room before leaving the home, the report said.
