50-year-old arrested for assaultPublished 11:06am Wednesday, July 24, 2013
A 50-year-old Erhard man was arrested early Wednesday for felony domestic assault-interfering with a 911 call, according to the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office. Other charges are pending.
A neighbor called in the assault just after 7 p.m. Tuesday, saying the suspect had just hit the victim. Responding officers initially tried to make contact with the suspect at 35604 285th Ave. in rural Erhard, but he refused to come out of the residence.
The SWAT team was called in because of the suspect’s history of criminal behavior. They forced entry into the house and made the arrest at 1:20 a.m.
Officers made contact with the victim right away when they arrived and brought her to a safe location.
