A 29-year old Howard City man is behind bars awaiting arraignment after being arrested on felonious assault charges.
According to the Montcalm Co. Sheriff's Office, the incident occurred Saturday at a home on Joy Street.
Police say the 25-year old female victim called authorities after she was allegedly physically assaulted and threatened with a weapon by her boyfriend.
The suspect left before law enforcement officials arrived. The area, as well as other possible locations the suspect may have fled to, was checked.
The suspect was eventually taken into custody in Ionia by the Ionia County Sheriff’s Office.
The suspect is currently in the Montcalm County Jail charged with Assault With Intent To Do Great Bodily Harm Less Than Murder, Assault With A Dangerous Weapon, and Domestic Assault.
The suspect is expected to be arraigned later today.
The woman went to Kelsey Spectrum Hospital for treatment of minor injuries and was released.
