Man charged with domestic abuse

Venegas

A local man was arrested and taken to Marshall County Jail earlier this week on a charge of domestic abuse assault, according to a criminal complaint and affidavit filed in Marshall County District Court.

Marcos Venegas 18, assaulted the victim by striking her in the face with a closed fist, causing bodily injury. The defendant turned himself in and admitted hitting the victim. A magistrate appointed the defendant a public defender, and also placed a no contact order against him, meaning he can not contact the victim. The defendant was ordered held on $1,000 cash/surety bond. His preliminary hearing is May 30.
