A North Platte man is in jail on felony charges after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend last week.
At around 9:00 p.m., on August 6, North Platte Police responded to the report of a suicidal male in the 1500 block of East 10th Street.
As officers investigated, they learned that the suspect, 23-year-old Clint Redden, had assaulted his 24-year-old girlfriend.
The victim alleged that, following an argument, Redden had pushed her down onto a bed and choked her using his forearm.
She stated that he continued to assault her by pushing her down and biting her.
Following further investigation, officers determined that there was probable cause to arrest Redden.
He was charged with felony strangulation and 3rd degree domestic assault. Additionally, because a 23-month-old child was present during the violence, Redden was charged with misdemeanor child abuse.
Redden was placed in emergency protective custody and transported to Great Plains Health. He was arrested upon his release from the hospital on August 11.
