Naytahwaush man jailed

A Naytahwaush man made his first court appearance for two felony charges of domestic assault.

According to the complaint, a woman told police that Leon had followed her from the Village of Elbow Lake and demanded she get out of her car. When she refused, he reportedly threatened her.

The woman also stated that the evening prior to the incident, Leon had punched her several times in the arms and head and kicked her in the ribs. Police noted several bruises on her.
