ROUND LAKE — A Round Lake party resulted in the arrest of an Aberdeen, S.D. man.
According to court records, a Nobles County deputy was called to a party in Round Lake where a man was reportedly throwing punches. Upon the deputy's arrival, three females were allegedly visibly shaken, upset and crying.
One of the females reported that Joshua J. Moos, 22, had become intoxicated at the party and began throwing punches at other attendees. When another female attempted to get Moos to leave, he allegedly screamed at her and slammed the car door on her lower leg and foot.
Upon contact with Moos the deputy observed dried blood on his mouth, clothing and hands. Moos declined to say where the blood had originated. He was placed under arrest, at which time he reportedly became upset and difficult to place in the squad car. Moos allegedly became increasingly agitated and physically aggressive as the squad car's door closed.
Moos has been charged with two counts of felony domestic assault, which is punishable up to five years imprisonment, a $10,000 fine or both. The assault is categorized as a felony because of Moos' criminal history, which has two or more previous qualified domestic violence-related offense convictions or adjudications of delinquency.
A review of his criminal history shows a 2017 conviction of violating an order for protection and a 2019 conviction of fourth-degree rape. Both offenses occurred in Brown County, S.D.
Moos' conditional bail was scheduled at $7,500; his unconditional at $15,000. A court-ordered domestic abuse no contact order prohibits Moos from having contact with the victim.
