FD man charged with domestic assault

A Fort Dodge man is facing multiple charges after allegedly assaulting a female and later refusing to come outside of a Fort Dodge home for about 4 hours, according to the Fort Dodge Police Department.

Police responded to a call at 410 N. 10th St. after a female reported a man was going to harm her.

The call came in at about 7:25 a.m.

When police arrived, they talked to a female in a nearby alleyway.

That female said Carlos A. Perry, 35, of Fort Dodge, physically assaulted her throughout the morning.

She said Perry was still inside of a nearby house.

While police attempted to locate Perry, the female was transported by ambulance to UnityPoint Health – Trinity Regional Medical Center, where she was treated for minor injuries.

Officers were able to make contact with Perry at the house, but he refused to come outside, according to police.

After about 4 hours of communication between officers and Perry, Perry came out of the house and was taken into custody without further incident, police reported.

The 400 block of North 10th Street was closed during the incident.

The Webster County Sheriff’s Department and Fort Dodge Fire Department were also on scene.

“This was a great example of our officers utilizing their training and experience to resolve a situation peacefully,” said Capt. Ryan Gruenberg, of the Fort Dodge Police Department.

Perry is charged with domestic assault impeding air/blood flow causing bodily injury, a class D felony; first-degree harassment, an aggravated misdemeanor; false imprisonment, a serious misdemeanor; and outstanding arrest warrant for violation of parole.

Perry is being held in the Webster County Jail.

The Fort Dodge Police Department continues to investigate. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fort Dodge Police Department at 573-1426 or Webster County Crime Stoppers at 573-1444.
