Moorhead man charged with assault

A Moorhead man appeared recently in Becker County District Court on felony charges of third degree assault and domestic assault by strangulation.

Craig Alan Fowler, 31, of 3019 33rd St. S., Moorhead, is accused of assaulting an adult woman in the hotel room they shared at the Holiday Inn in Detroit Lakes on Sept. 1.

According to court records, the woman was brought to the emergency room and treated for a broken nose, a broken orbital bone near her eye and a tear in her ear. She also had marks on her neck consistent with being strangled.

Fowler has been released on $10,000 bail pending his next court appearance, at an Oct. 2 omnibus hearing.
