Worthington man arrested for domestic assault after allegedly locking victim in room for 3 hours
Coronado charged with three crimes.
WORTHINGTON — A Worthington resident is charged with felony-level false imprisonment, as well as two counts of domestic assault, both misdemeanors, following a July 26 arrest in the city of Worthington.
Maudilio Rocael Juarez Coronado, 34, faces the charges in Nobles County Fifth District Court after a victim reported that Coronado had assaulted her the previous night. Coronado reportedly became angry after discovering the victim had a back-up cell phone, then took the phone and kicked the victim in the stomach. Afterwards, Coronado reportedly locked the victim in a room for three hours and would not let her leave.
The officer went to Coronado’s home and placed him under arrest. The cell phone was reportedly in Coronado’s pants pocket. Coronado declined to give a statement. Other individuals in the home confirmed that the cell phone belonged to the victim.
If convicted, Coronado faces up to three years imprisonment and/or a $5,000 fine on the charge of false imprisonment; and 90 days in jail and/or a $1,000 fine for each of the two domestic assault charges — one for bodily harm, and the other to cause fear of immediate bodily harm or death.
