Newton Police

Department

• Jonas R. Henderson, 41, of Newton, was charged with domestic assault at 1 a.m. Sunday. According to a police report, officers were sent to the 1400 block of North Fourth Avenue East on a call of a possible domestic assault in progress. Officers determined nothing took place at the address they were initially sent, and they were then sent to a residence in the 700 block of East Fourth Street North. It was there Henderson told officers he was arguing with the victim about his daughter. Officers talked to the victim and saw red marks on her neck. She said they were arguing for most of the day, and he allegedly got on top of her while on a bed and grabbed her throat while their daughter came in and saw it happen. Henderson was arrested and transported to the Jasper County Jail.
