Domestic violence — Tristin Joseph Brinkley, 21, of Corvallis was arrested at 9:41 a.m. at an apartment in the 800 block of Northeast Walnut Boulevard after a witness reported an argument.

He was charged with second-degree assault, strangulation, menacing, fourth-degree assault, interfering with making a report, second-degree disorderly conduct and second-degree criminal mischief.
Phone scam — At 3:19 p.m. on Saturday an officer took a report from a man at Northwest Ninth Street and Circle Boulevard who said two women tried to involve him in a scam. The man said the women drove up to him in a dark blue station wagon and asked if he wanted to make $100. He said yes and got in the car. They told him to open a Verizon phone service account in his name and they would change the plan over to their names the next day. The man decided the plan sounded like a scam and asked to be let out of the car. The women began speaking in a language he didn’t recognize and dropped him off.
