Missing Ohio woman found in Gainesville, boyfriend arrested


Patrick Brennan Scriven, 23, of Kansas, was arrested yesterday on domestic assault charges after officers did a well-being check on his girlfriend, who had been missing since December 29.

According to Scriven’s arrest report, he has an extensive history of domestically abusing the victim, including a protection order in Ohio and two non-extraditable warrants out of Kansas and Ohio for domestic assault, felony domestic battery, and aggravated battery.

The victim had been missing from Ohio since December 29, and several law enforcement agencies were contacted and asked to be on the look-out for her. Scriven and the victim had been staying at the Days Inn on SW 13th Street for the past few days but moved to a new apartment today. After Scriven allegedly threatened the victim today, she texted the address to her mother to send to the police, and a Gainesville Police Department officer went to do a well-being check.

After interviewing both Scriven and the victim, the officer arrested Scriven and charged him with domestic aggravated assault and domestic simple assault. He remains in the jail on $500,000 bond ($250,000 on each charge) and a requirement for a GPS device if he is released.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
