St. Peter Domestic Assault Charges 30 May 13

A St. Peter man is facing multiple charges following a recent domestic assault incident. 25-year-old Timothy Peter Lorentz faces treatment and jail time after the 22-year-old woman he had been staying with was hospitalized with a concussion. The victim told authorities that she and Lorentz had an argument, and she dialed 911, but he allegedly knocked the phone out of her hands and then picked her up and slammed her on the ground on her head. She has since been released from the hospital. In addition to domestic assault charges, Lorentz is also facing counts of criminal damage to property, interfering with a 911 call, and violation of probation. His initial court appearance is set for June 6th.
