WINDOM — A Windom woman is charged with two counts of felony burglary for reportedly entering a local residence without consent and assaulting the building’s occupant.

The ruling does not find theSioux Falls man mentally ill and dangerous, which would have resulted in placement in the Minnesota Security Hospital in St. Peter. Vossen was earlier found incompetent to stand trial on a murder charge in the 1974 homicide of Mabel Herman.
"It's difficult to think of a way this could have been worse,” said Deputy County Attorney Braeden Hoefert on the circumstance of the case.

On Jan. 12, a Windom police officer was dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of 11th Street for a possible medical call. The reporting party, and victim, stated that an unknown woman, later identified as Dawn Marie Glynn, had come into the victim's house.

According to the report, while the officer was en route, dispatch heard screaming from the call. Upon arrival at the residence, the officer could hear the victim screaming for help. Glynn was also screaming. The victim was attempting to hold Glynn down.

The officer recognized Glynn from prior contact and began attempting to handcuff her. Dispatch was informed that Glynn was possibly overdosing and resisting handcuffs. Backup was requested. A second officer arrived at the scene and Glynn reportedly continued to resist being placed in handcuffs.

Glynn was eventually handcuffed, and officers attempted to get her on her side. An ambulance later arrived and Glynn was transported to the hospital.


The victim reportedly was watching television and heard a noise in the kitchen. According to the complaint, the victim looked over and found Glynn standing in the living room without socks or shoes. The victim reportedly did not know Glynn and had not invited her inside. It was believed she entered through the unlocked back door.

The victim told officers Glynn appeared cold, and suggested she sit down with a blanket and while an ambulance was requested.

Glynn reportedly began acting strange, and lashed out at the victim, biting and scratching the individual. Multiple bite marks, red scratches and bruises were observed on the victim’s upper body.

Glynn also faces a misdemeanor count of fifth degree assault, which carries a maximum sentence of 90 days in jail, a $1,000 fine, or both. The maximum sentence for each of the burglary charges is 20 years in prison, a $35,000 fine, or both.

Conditional bail for Glynn was set at $10,000. She is scheduled to make her initial court appearance on Jan. 31.
