A 21-year-old North Platte man is in jail on multiple charges after he allegedly pushed a woman out of a moving vehicle, then threw an object at her face.
On April 13, at around 3:29 p.m., an officer responded to the 500 block of East Philip Avenue on the report of an assault that had taken place the night before.
An officer met with a female victim who reported that she had been in a vehicle with Adam Sanchez at around 3:00 a.m. on April 12, when they got into a verbal argument. The woman alleged that, during the argument, Sanchez threw her purse and phone out the window, then pushed her out of the vehicle while it was still moving in the 600 block of North Poplar. Officer Beth Kerr says the victim suffered minor injuries.
The victim then told officers that, a short time later, Sanchez returned and they went to a residence in the 1300 block of North Bailey Avenue.
While they were at the residence, Sanchez allegedly threw an object at the victim’s face, causing further injury.
At this time, the woman stated that she attempted to leave the residence, but Sanchez refused to let her leave and reportedly took away all forms of communication from the victim.
The next morning, police say Sanchez left and the victim was able to leave the residence.
On April 13, Officer Kerr says Sanchez followed the victim to the police station, where he was contacted by officers and placed under arrest.
He was jailed and the Lincoln County Detention Center and is charged with 2nd-degree domestic assault (Class IIIA Felony), 3rd-degree domestic assault (Class I Misdemeanor), and 2nd-degree false imprisonment (Class I Misdemeanor).
