The man allegedly reached into the commode and grabbed feces and wiped it on the woman's face, he said.

The woman's son attempted to call 911, but the man allegedly grabbed the phone and stopped him, Lykken said.

Police met the woman at a different location and then went to the residence and arrested David Kenneth Neil, 38, on suspicion of interfering with a 911 call, a felony, Lykken said.

Neil was taken to the Cass County Jail. It's possible he could face an assault charge, Lykken said.

The incident was reported at 3:05 a.m. in the 1600 block of 34th Avenue South.
