A Cassville man is being held in the Barry County jail after allegedly assaulting a victim in a domestic incident, leading to a broken leg.
Charles Bowman, 41, of Cassville, is charged with second-degree domestic assault.
According to a probable cause statement filed by Jeremy Thomas, officer with the Cassville Police Department, at about 9:39 p.m. on Feb. 20, he responded to Mercy Hospital to make a report for a victim of an assault. The victim said following an argument, Bowman pushed her to the ground, causing her to break the head of her femur, as well as causing abrasions to her right arm and left hand knuckles. The emergency room nurse confirmed the injuries.
Thomas went to Bowman's home and located him. Bowman allegedly admitted to shoving the victim to the ground in the driveway of the home on Old Exeter Road.
Bowman is being held in the Barry County jail on a cash-only bond of $15,000. He has been arraigned and disposition hearing was held on Tuesday in the courtroom of Judge Robert Foulke.
