- Christopher Peter Padin, 16, of Willmar, pleaded guilty Thursday to a misdemeanor charge of fifth-degree assault for entering a home on June 4 to assault a juvenile male.

As part of a plea agreement, the charge was reduced from gross misdemeanor level and a felony charge of first-degree burglary will be dismissed. His dispositional hearing is July 29.

Felony charges against 16- and 17-year-olds are public record.

According to the petition, Willmar police were called around 10:20 p.m. June 4 to the northwest quadrant of the city regarding an assault. They found a juvenile female with injuries to her face. Witnesses said Padin and a woman entered the home, and that the woman had assaulted the girl and that Padin had assaulted the boy. Another person then entered the home and took Padin and two others out, driving away in a van.

Other police officers located the van and interviewed the occupants. Padin admitted to hitting the boy and the woman admitted to hitting the girl.

- Santos Norma Janis Marinela Hernandez-Acevedo, 38, of Willmar, made her first appearance Friday on felony charges of forgery and aggravated forgery for allegedly using another person’s identity to obtain employment.

Unconditional bail was set at $25,000. Her next appearance is June 24.

According to the complaint, Willmar Police received an anonymous letter, written in Spanish, on April 16 that alleged selling of documents, identity theft and the sale of prescription drugs. The suspect was identified as a person working under the false name of Denisse Hernandez Martinez at Jennie O Turkey Store.

An investigation by agents from the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement found that Hernandez Martinez was actually Santos Norma Janis Marinela Hernandez-Acevedo, who is from El Salvador and had no proper identification to be in the U.S. Fingerprints in the ICE database indicated that she had been removed to El Salvador from Phoenix in December 2005.

In addition, investigators also received falsely signed employment documents from local Jennie O officials, signed in September and October 2010.

- Pedro Martin III, 27, of Willmar, made his first appearance Friday on a felony charge of domestic assault.

Unconditional bail was set at $40,000. His next appearance is June 24.

According to the complaint, Willmar Police were called Thursday morning to a residence in the southeast quadrant of the city on an assault. A woman there reported that Martin had assaulted her because she didn’t make the breakfast he wanted to eat. She said he threw the offending omelet on her plate and smeared butter on her forehead and in her hair. He then grabbed her and pushed her into the bathtub, where she fell backwards. The woman said that Martin stood her back up and then left the residence with two others.

The officer observed butter in the woman’s hair and a wet spot on the back of her sweater.

Martin was located by another officer and arrested. He denied any physical altercation and denied smearing butter on her face or forcing her into the bathroom.

Another adult said Martin walked the woman to the bathroom, turned on the water and closed the door. However, a child told officers that the incident happened as the victim had reported.

Martin has prior convictions for interfering with a 911 call in 2005, domestic assault in 2008 and fifth-degree assault, as a gross misdemeanor, in 2012.
