District Court

Kandiyohi County

n Nathan Anthony Gonzales, 29, of Willmar, made his first appearance Monday on a felony charge of violation of a domestic abuse no-contact order and a gross misdemeanor for property damage dating back to 2009.

Unconditional bail was set at $23,000. His next appearance is Dec. 3.

According to the complaint, Willmar Police were called around 7 a.m. June 26, 2009, to a residence in the northwest quadrant on a property damage report. A woman reported that she'd heard a smashing sound around 3 a.m. and looked out to see Gonzales standing by her vehicle. The vehicle had two slashed tires and the windshield had been smashed by a patio block. The woman had a no-contact order prohibiting Gonzales from contact with her or her property. The order was connected to Gonzales' conviction for domestic assault by strangulation.

The officer contacted Gonzales, who first claimed he was in St. Cloud, but later told the officer he was at his girlfriend's home, which was very close to the woman's home. The damage estimate was between $500 and $1,000.
