WORTHINGTON ― A Worthington man was arrested on assault charges Friday after police responded to a domestic disturbance call.

A witness reported that Jady Alfonso, 28, had assaulted the witness's friend a couple of days before, breaking the victim's finger. Following that incident, the victim had asked the witness to call 9-1-1 if Alfonso returned to the residence. Alfonso returned Friday, prompting the call to law enforcement.

While police were talking to the witness, Alfonso reportedly jumped out a window of the residence and began running down the street. When officers detained him, he allegedly told police he hadn’t done anything wrong, but looked at the witness and said he was sorry. When the officers asked what he was sorry for, Alfonso reportedly said he “was not sorry about what happened.”

The victim explained to police that Alfonso had attacked them a couple of days previously, and a few people witnessed the assault and intervened to make Alfonso stop. A later trip to the hospital had revealed that Alfonso had broken the victim’s finger.

Alfonso was arrested and charged with third-degree assault, threats of violence and two counts of misdemeanor domestic assault. He faces a maximum of five years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both.

The witness and the victim told police they fear for their lives when Alfonso is released from jail, because he had threatened to kill them when he saw police show up to the residence.
