JASPER — Police arrested a man Saturday and accused him of felony domestic battery.

A female came to the Jasper Police Station at 6 p.m. Saturday to report domestic incidents she said occurred Thursday and Friday. Jasper police report the victim had visible bruises consistent with her statement.

The suspect, Brian C. Howard, 51, 2200 N. Mill St., Jasper, was brought to the police station for questioning. He allegedly denied touching the victim but was taken into custody after the investigation.

Authorities booked Howard into the Dubois County Security Center on two preliminary Level 5 felony counts of domestic battery. The preliminary charges were enhanced because of a prior domestic battery conviction in 2016.
