Ponsford man charged with domestic assault

Wesley Robert Warren, 20, of rural Ponsford, has been charged in Becker County District Court with two felony counts of domestic assault.

According to court records, at 7:29 a.m. Aug. 2, White Earth tribal police officers were dispatched to a Ponsford residence on the report of a domestic assault.

A woman there said Warren had punched her above the right eye, knocking her down, then punching and kicking her multiple times. A witness stopped the assault, she said. She has been living with him the past three months and they are related by blood.

A witness, who dropped the woman off at another residence in Pine Point, said Warren had also thrown a bowling ball at the woman, but missed.
