A Perry man was arrested on a Dallas County warrant Monday after allegedly assaulting his sister Sunday at a house in rural Perry.
Matthew David Corrigan, 28, of 16762 Killaren Dr., Perry, was charged with first-offense domestic abuse assault.
According to court records, the alleged assault occurred about noon Sunday at the Killaren Drive residence.
The victim told law enforcement that an argument occurred during which Corrigan allegedly “slapped her forehead, grabbed her glasses and threw them” and “grabbed her by the wrist while she was on the phone with law enforcement and attempted to take her phone.”
The victim “did not suffer any visible injuries,” according to court records, “but did complain of mild pain in her wrist.”
Corrigan is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $300 cash or surety bond. He is scheduled for a pretrial conference June 1 in Dallas County District Court.
Corrigan was convicted of two counts of assault causing injury-peace officers/others in 2012 in Dallas County District Court.
