Man arrested third time for domestic abuse assault


Johnny Seed, 58, of Toledo was arrested Tuesday by Marshalltown police for domestic abuse assault-third or subsequent offense.

Seed was taken to Marshall County Jail following the investigation.

Officers said in the criminal complaint Seed assaulted the victim by jumping on him, scratching his arm, hitting him in the arms and head, and scratching his hand.

The injuries were visible to police.

At Seed’s initial appearance Wednesday before a magistrate, he was ordered to be held in jail on $5,000 cash or surety bond. Seed was also appointed a public defender. The magistrate also issued a no contact order to protect the victim.

Seed’s preliminary hearing will be on Sept. 20.
