Assault suspect held on bond

Perry refused to come outside when officers arrived to investigate

A Fort Dodge man accused of assaulting a woman and refusing to come out of a house for four hours has been ordered held on cash bonds.

Carlos A. Perry, 35, is charged with domestic assault impeding air flow, a Class D felony; first-degree harassment, an aggravated misdemeanor; and false imprisonment, a serious misdemeanor.

He’s accused of physically assaulting a woman at 410 N. 10th St. early Monday morning. Fort Dodge police Capt. Ryan Gruenberg said Perry refused to come outside when officers arrived.

Perry eventually surrendered about four hours later without further incident.

He made his initial appearance in Webster County Magistrate Court Tuesday morning.

District Associate Court Judge Joseph Tofilon, who was presiding over Magistrate Court on Tuesday, read the complaints to Perry and then ordered the defendant held on a combined $8,000 cash bond.

Tofilon also issued a no-contact order between Perry and the woman he’s accused of assaulting.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for June 27.

Additionally, Perry was charged with a parole violation in an unrelated case. He was held on $5,000 bond in that case, which was sent to the Parole Board for scheduling.
