"Boyfriend" from Waupun, WI charged with assault

A 23 year old Waupun, WI man was arrested and charged after beating his girlriend with a stick until the broomstick broke. The "girlfriend" said that her "partner" had a history of threatening behavior and threatened to kill her if she reported the beating.

Waupun police were called just after midnight today to respond to a domestic incident at an apartment on the 400 block of Main Street. The 23-year-old victim told police she and the 24-year-old man were arguing over money the day before when he grabbed her by the hair and began beating her with the steel handle of a broom, according to police reports.

Waupun Police Chief Dale Heeringa stated "The woman told officers that he swung the broomstick like a baseball bat, hitting her as hard as he could. She said he finally stopped when the handle broke.”

Fond du Lac County District Attorney’s Office has charges of disorderly conduct-domestic abuse pending. The suspect is being held at the Fon Du Lac County jail.
