Police interrupt domestic beating

Tuesday, March 26, 2002

Storm Lake police arrested a Storm Lake man for allegedly abusing and injuring a woman, responding to a 911 call hang-up Saturday evening.

As officers arrived at 401 Cayuga Street, Apartment 103, they could hear a male and female arguing and yelling and then officers heard the voices become muffled. Police knocked. When a man opened the door, a female ran past him and into hall with officers. She had suffered injuries including bruises and abrasions, and her clothing was torn.

Police determined the subjects had gotten into a domestic dispute, and allege that the man had struck her several times. When the female attempted to call police the man disconnected the telephone. The male subject would not allow the female to leave the apartment and he place his hand over her mouth when she attempted to call for help.

Antonio Veliz Garza, 44, of Storm Lake, is charged with Domestic Abuse With Injury and Interference With Emergency Communications. He was booked into jail and held without bond.
