Domestic violence attack leads to arrest of Freeport man
Freeport man charged in domestic assault case.
A Freeport man has been charged on a count of domestic battery and two counts of trespass.
On, Thursday police were called to the 600 block of S. Harlem Ave. for a domestic violence complaint.
Authorities say an argument happened between the 28-year-old victim and Dakota Higgs. The victim says Higgs entered the home without permission and wouldn’t leave when asked and then began pushing and shoving the victim. Higgs allegedly took the victims phone and pulled her by her hair.
Police arrested Higgs for Domestic Battery when discovering Higgs was convicted of Domestic Battery in Stephenson County in 2011 which enhanced the charges to a felony.
Higgs is currently being held at the Stephenson County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
