Jasper police arrest man on battery charge

From local sources

JASPER — A 911 call that was disconnected before authorities could speak to the caller led to a man’s arrest Thursday afternoon.

After the 12:31 p.m. call was cut short, Jasper Police Department officers went to the 322 E. Fifth St. apartment of 30-year-old Vincent J. Gonzales.

Officers were advised Gonzales had battered a woman who also resides at the apartment. When a second woman attempted to notify authorities, police were told, Gonzales allegedly pulled the phone cord from the phone and disconnected the 911 call.

Police arrested Gonzales on misdemeanor counts of battery and interfering with the reporting of a crime.

Authorities booked Gonzales into the Dubois County Security Center at 2:45 p.m.
