An Adel man was arrested Sept. 6 for allegedly assaulting a female at their residence.
Damian Kade Pearce, 19, of 2121 Greene St., Adel, was charged with first-offense domestic abuse assault-bodily injury or mental illness.
The incident began about 12:45 p.m. Sept. 6, when officers of the Adel Police Department responded to a report of a domestic disturbance in the 2100 block of Greene Street.
According to court records, the victim told the officers that Pearce “grabbed her arm just below her elbow and choked her” and “punched her on the right hip area.”
The officers observed on the victim “a red hand print on her left arm but no marks
on her neck” or hip area.
Pearce was held in the Dallas County Jail prior to posting a $1,000 cash or surety bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Sept 17 in Dallas County District Court.
