A Jewett man was severely beaten at his home during an apparent domestic dispute, June 10, according to a probable cause statement filed by the Madison County Sheriff’s Department.
A warrant has been issued for Domonic Parrow, 18, of Cape Girardeau, charging him with first degree assault (an A felony) resulting in serious physical injury.
According to the report, shortly after 9 p.m., on the evening of June 10, Parrow accompanied the victim’s wife to the victim’s Jewett residence along with another unidentified person.
The report states the wife told deputies that during a conversation with the victim he placed a gun in her face, began pulling her hair and striking her with a pistol. She then screamed for help. Parrow, who had been standing on the adjoining county road, ran to the scene and struck the victim with his fist until he was knocked out.
According to the report, Parrow admitted responsibility for the victim’s injuries. He also told deputies he did not observe the victim had a gun until after the altercation.
According to the dispatch logs, a 9-1-1 hang up call was made from the residence at 9:40 p.m., June 10. The wife placed a non-9-1-1 call at 10:47 p.m., June 10, saying her husband had pulled a gun on her.
Deputies arrived on the scene at 4:25 p.m., June 11, after the victim’s neighbor made a 9-1-1 call (at 3:54 p.m., June 11). The victim was treated for a head injury, facial fractures and multiple abrasions. He was lifted from the scene by Arch Air. According to the report, in the hospital the victim underwent surgery to relieve swelling to his brain.
