Man charged with assault using a weapon



A local man was arrested by Marshalltown police and taken to Marshall County Jail earlier this week on charges of assault use/display of a weapon and interference with official acts.

Ricardo Antonio Alvez, 30, assaulted the victim at a residence in the 300 block of North Third Street, according to an MPD report. The defendant grabbed the victim around her neck and strangled her while pressing a handgun into her stomach, according to two criminal complaints and affidavits filed in Marshall County District Court.

The defendant’s preliminary hearing will be Sept. 21, where he will be represented by an attorney of his choosing. Additionally, the defendant must turn in all firearms to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office by Friday.
