A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Detroit Lakes man on felony domestic assault charges.

Michael Barry Farley, 43, of 21804 County Highway 6, Lot A9, Detroit Lakes, was charged in connection with a July 3 incident in which St. Joseph's Hospital reported a female victim had been assaulted and needed medical attention. A subsequent investigation indicated that the victim had been injured as the result of an altercation with Farley at the home they shared.

During the fight, she was struck in the face several times and a pillow placed over her head, making it difficult for her to breathe. The defendant was on probation for another domestic assault charge of which he was convicted in Becker County on Jan. 8, 2007.
