Local man tries to strangle girlfriend
A local man faces charges of felony assault and false imprisonment after police arrested him Tuesday for an incident Monday night.
Kellen Nail, 28, of Marshalltown, allegedly grabbed his girlfriend around the throat and prevented her from leaving the home he shares with his mother on the 1000 block of Church Street, said Capt. Mike Hanken, with the Marshalltown Police Department.
The victim, who did not need medical attention, came into the police department following the alleged assault and spoke to police, Hanken said. Police charged Nail with domestic assault strangulation, a Class D felony; and false imprisonment, a serious misdemeanor.
Nail made his initial appearance Wednesday where the judge issued a public defender and set his bond at $5,000 cash. The judge also ordered Nail to turn over all firearms and ammunition to the sheriff's office and issued a no contact order on the victim. His preliminary hearing is set for July 5.
