2 different domestic assaults in Isabella County end in arrests

ISABELLA COUNTY, MICH. - Isabella County Sheriff's deputies made arrests in two different domestic assault cases in the last two days.

The first incident happened on Friday. Around 5:15 p.m. deputies were dispatched to a domestic assault at a house on West County Line Road in Rolland Township.

According to deputies, a 38-year-old Riverdale man upset for an unknown reason and started to throw a 25-year-old Blanchard woman's cell phone on the group in attempts to break it. When the woman attempted to get her phone back, the Riverdale man bit her on the arm and began to throw items around the house.

The woman decided to leave the home for help and as she was getting her shoes, the man pushed her down a set of four steps. The woman told deputies that the man picked her up and brought her into another room then dropped her on the so that she could not leave. She said that the Riverdale man kicked her in the hip area while she tried to crawl away from him.

The woman did get out of the house. The man left the home and began running on foot. 

Deputies searched for the man, eventually finding him on Culter Road in Montcalm county. Deputies believe that he may have been getting a ride from someone. When the man saw deputies, he began to run again. Deputies pursued him on foot and apprehended him before he got too far.

The second incident happened early Sunday morning. Around 2:20 a.m. deputies were dispatched to a verbal altercation between two women and a man at a house on East Kay Street in Union Township. 

When deputies arrived to the scene, they learned one woman had slapped the man. He grabbed her by the throat. 

As deputies spoke with the three, the man became belligerent and attempted to leave the house. The man resisted arrest, forcing deputies to use physical force to him. Deputies use a Taser on him then took him into custody. 

The woman who slapped the man was also arrested.

Both incidents remain under investigation by the Isabella County Sheriff's Office.
