WILLMAR - Jeffrey Allen Hanson, 29, of Willmar, made his first appearance Wednesday on a charge of felony third-degree assault stemming from an incident reported Saturday in Willmar.
Hanson also faces misdemeanor charges of domestic assault and fifth-degree assault. Bail was set at $50,000 without conditions and $15,000 with conditions, and he is scheduled to make his next court appearance
According to the criminal complaint on the charges, a Willmar Police Department sergeant was dispatched early Saturday morning to a residence in northwest Willmar on the report of a domestic assault. He spoke with a woman at the residence, who said her Hanson had assaulted her and her mother.
Law enforcement later found Hanson at the nearby residence. Hanson allegedly had blood on the back of his hands and told officers that he had “done something stupid,” while he was intoxicated, the criminal complaint states.
The sergeant then spoke with the woman’s mother, who said she was the one who had called 911. She said Hanson started assaulting her, punching her multiple times in the face and body and kneeing her in the ribs.
The sergeant reportedly noticed abrasions on the woman’s forearms and forehead. An X-ray of the woman’s ribs revealed that they had been severely bruised, according to the criminal complaint. The woman also said she could not hear out of one of her ears.
The woman said her daughter was not home when the incident started. When her daughter later arrived at the house and tried to stop the alleged assault, Hanson then allegedly began to assault her, according to the criminal complaint.
