OCHEYEDAN—A 30-year-old Ocheyedan man was arrested Thursday, Feb. 25, on warrants for first-offense domestic abuse assault while displaying or using a weapon, second-degree criminal mischief and violation of a no contact/protective order.
The arrest of Wesley Gerald Hanson stemmed from an incident that occurred about 3 p.m. Monday, Feb. 15, according to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.
Hanson swung a ball peen hammer at an Ocheyedan woman, who is a protected individual, while trying to keep her downstairs in her own residence, according to the incident report.
“She had several bruises on her right thigh from the defendant’s abuse,” according to the incident report.
Hanson also poured sugar in the gas tank of the woman’s car and damaged the doors, walls and floors inside her residence.
Another warrant Hanson was arrested for on Feb. 25 was on a charge of assault when he shoulder shoved a different female while running out of the residence of the protected female on Wednesday, Feb. 17.
Hanson also was charged again Feb. 25 with violation of the no contact/protective order after he sent an e-mail to the protected female about 3 a.m. that morning.
He posted $500 bond and was released from the Osceola County Jail in Sibley on Feb. 26.
Hanson was cited again the next day when he used another individual to contact the protected female about 10:15 a.m., according to court documents.
