Before noon on May 14, deputies responded to a report of a “very loud argument” in the 600 block of Susan Street in Clifton. Deputies spoke with a woman and man who was identified as 58-year-old Robert Dix, Jr. By court order, the adult female is a protected party from Robert and the court order also states Robert is not allowed to be at the residence on Susan Street.
