Three Arrested

Three people were arrested by Archbold police on charges including assault and domestic violence over a seven-day period from Monday, June 20, to Sunday, June 26.

Mathew C. Biard, 38, Edgerton, was arrested and taken to the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio after he allegedly assaulted a woman at Frozen Specialties.

The alleged victim, Crystal D. Zehr, 33, Bryan, told police that at 5:39 pm that day, she was assaulted by Biard, whom she identified as her boyfriend. She suffered apparent minor injuries as a result of the incident.

The report states Biard told officers “he told her to leave and she refused, so he attempted to remove her.

“It was determined by video surveillance that indeed the male assaulted the female.”

Biard was arrested and transported to CCNO. He was later freed on $1,000 bond, 10% allowed ($100 cash).


Carol Arend, 53, Archbold, was arrested after an incident that occurred between 11:30-11:50 pm, Tuesday, June 21.

David Miller, 56, 1301 S. Buehrer Street, told police as he lay in bed, he awoke to find Arend allegedly standing over him. She then reportedly began to assault him.

Miller said he attempted to remove Arend from the home several times, but she kept re-entering. She reportedly gained access to the house through a first-floor side window.

Archbold Rescue responded to the scene and treated Miller’s injuries, but he declined to be taken to a hospital.

Police later located Arend at another address, where she was placed under arrest and charged with aggravated burglary, domestic violence, and violation of a protection order.

Arend was transported to the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, then released on her own recognizance during a hearing in Western District Court the following day.

A spokesman from Western District Court said later, a felony-level aggravated burglary charge was filed against Arend by officials at the Fulton County prosecutor office.

The charge is the result of the same June 21 incident.

She was arrested by sheriff deputies and booked into CCNO on Friday, June 24. As of Monday afternoon, she was still being held at CCNO.


Police also arrested Alejandro Martinez Ayala, 47, Archbold, on Sunday, June 26.

Tera Rogers, a police officer, confirmed Ayala was arrested on a charge of domestic violence.

The charge, Rogers said, “resulted from an incident that occurred in the village of Archbold, more specifi- cally, 306 South Street.”

Details surrounding Ayala’s arrest were not yet available.
