Fulda man charged with assault – The Globe

FULDA – Alvin Thompson, 36, of Fulda, was arrested and charged June 10 in Murray County with second-degree domestic assault by strangulation.

According to a law enforcement report, a Slayton police officer was dispatched to a location in Slayton following reports of an assault in progress. The attacker was reported to have had a panic attack and choked the reporting party.

Upon arrival, the officer saw a victim on the ground with a man, later identified as Thompson, holding the victim’s shoulders from behind. The officer pulled Thompson off the victim, and Thompson allegedly went limp and acted like he didn’t know what was going on. He was then handcuffed and an ambulance was called to the scene for his injuries.

The victim reportedly stated that she had been living with Thompson for about a week, saying that she had had a seizure earlier and since then, she has been acting violently and unlike him. The victim reported that Thompson choked them to the point where they thought they would pass out from lack of oxygen. The officer noticed red marks on the victim’s neck that matched the incident described.

Ambulance personnel arrived and treated Thompson. It was reported that he probably faked the episodes. He said he did not remember what happened and did not live with the victim. He was then arrested and transported to the Lyon County Jail. His first court appearance is scheduled for June 24 in Murray County Fifth District Court.
