FD man accused of break-in

A Fort Dodge man is accused of committing a break-in late Thursday night.

Nicholas D. Bolden, 30, is charged with one count of second-degree burglary.

According to Capt. Ryan Gruenberg, of the Fort Dodge Police Department, officers were dispatched to a home in the 1200 block of South 22nd Street at 11:10 p.m. after receiving a call saying that somebody was banging on their back door.

The caller then said the suspect had gotten into the home and that the suspect may have assaulted them.

Officers arrested the suspect, who they identified as Bolden, after arriving on scene.

Gruenberg said Bolden knew the person inside the home, and officers believe this is an isolated incident.

Bolden made his initial appearance in front of Magistrate William Thatcher Friday morning in Webster County Magistrate Court.

During his appearance, Bolden claimed that he was living at the home that he’s accused of burglarizing.

Thatcher suggested that Bolden speak with an attorney about his case.

He also ordered Bolden held on $10,000 bond.

Bolden’s preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 18.
