Police Arrest Statesville Man For Domestic Assault

STATESVILLE, NC–  Police arrested Michael Allen Dummett early Sunday morning for domestic assault of a female.

At about 4:10 am, Statesville Police responded to an apartment building at Mallard Creek Apartments on Simonton Rd. after a caller heard a couple outside arguing.  Upon arrival, officers found a man and woman arguing outside of their apartment.

Officers then separated the two people and began investigating the incident.  It was discovered that the two people were a married couple who lived in the apartment.  Further investigation revealed signs of injury to the female involved and, as a result, the husband, Michael Allen Dummett, was arrested by officers.  Dummett was charged with Domestic Assault on a Female.  He was held on no bond at the time of arrest, due to the Domestic Violence statutes.

Dummett has since been released from custody late this morning on a $2,500 unsecured bond after having a first appearance in Iredell County District Court.  Dummett’s next court appearance is slated for May 10, 2017.
