From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Police took a Huntingburg man into custody Wednesday night on a Dubois Circuit Court warrant charging him with Level 6 felony strangulation and intimidation and a misdemeanor count of domestic battery.
Those charges stem from a Friday night incident in which the Huntingburg Police Department was called at 10:57 p.m. to apartments in the 300 block of North Chestnut Street regarding a reported domestic with strangulation that had just occurred.
The female victim told police the male suspect, Nery Alfredo Ayala Castillo, 27, 303 N. Washington St., Huntingburg, had left on foot with an unknown direction of travel.
Police said the victim declined medical treatment at the scene.
Castillo was not immediately located despite an extensive search of the area.
Police continued with their investigation, which resulted in the issuance of an arrest warrant Tuesday evening.
Huntingburg officers located Castillo at his residence and took him into custody at 10 p.m. Wednesday with the assistance of the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
After questioning at the Huntingburg Police Station, Castillo was transported to the Dubois County Security Center and booked at 10:57 p.m. He is being held on a $750 bond.
