Warrant issued for Pipestone man who reportedly assaulted neighbor, punching him in the head
Hesselbein faces felony counts of assault and domestic assault.
PIPESTONE COUNTY — A warrant was issued earlier this week for a resident of Ihlen in connection with a reported incident involving assault against two individuals.
Jared Hesselbein, 42, is being charged with one felony count of assault in the third degree for inflicting substantial bodily harm, according to court documents. Hesselbein also faces one felony count of domestic assault, a subsequent violation following previous convictions for domestic violence-related offenses.
Pipestone County law enforcement responded to a report of an assault that occurred at an Ihlen residence on March 24, where the reporting party stated that her husband, Hesselbein, had assaulted her neighbor. A deputy arrived and located the neighbor sitting on the floor with abrasions, swelling, and blood on his face.
The deputy spoke with the reporting party, who stated that Hesselbein had pushed and hit her in the chest. When Hesselbein started threatening her, the reporting party texted her neighbor asking him to contact law enforcement. The neighbor went to the home, and Hesselbein reportedly began punching him in the head. The neighbor was knocked to the ground, and lost consciousness as Hesselbein continued to punch him.
If convicted, Hesselbein faces a maximum sentence of five years imprisonment and/or a $10,000 fine for each of the charges against him.
