Man arrested for domestic battery

By Katherine Wartell

RCPD officers arrested a 25-year-old Manhattan man Wednesday afternoon after his spouse reported that he had allegedly threatened her with a blunt object after a series of altercations Wednesday.

Officers arrested Dustin Thomas Garrett, 25, 1506 Pierre St., for domestic battery, intimidation of a victim or witness and aggravated assault.

Lt. Josh Kyle said that the series of altercations began at 2 a.m. and lasted until 1:30 p.m. He said the 23-year-old woman was reported to have minor injuries.

Garrett has since been released from the Riley County Jail on $5,000 bond.
