Woman charged with assaulting girlfriend

Police charged a local woman with two counts relating to an alleged assault on her live-in girlfriend.

Naw Wah Takaw, 27, allegedly struck her girlfriend in the head and face with a blunt object Monday afternoon, said Capt. Mike Hanken, with the Marshalltown Police Department.

The women were arguing prior to the alleged assault at the couple's home on the 300 block of North Third Avenue, Hanken said. As the dispute escalated to violence, Takaw took to striking the 25-year-old, leaving lasting bruises.

Marshalltown Medical & Surgical Center doctors treated the victim for her injuries and released her that day, Hanken said.

Takaw is accused of willful injury, a Class D felony, and aggravated domestic assault, an aggravated misdemeanor.

Third OWI for Marshalltown man

A Marshalltown man received his third operating while intoxicated charge after allegedly running a traffic signal early Tuesday.

Jeramy Brown, 34, is charged with OWI, a Class D felony enhanced because it is his third offense, and driving while revoked, a serious misdemeanor, said Capt. Mike Hanken, with the Marshalltown Police Department.

Hanken said an officer pulled over Brown after spotting him running the traffic signal at the corner of Third Avenue and State Street just after midnight Tuesday.

After pulling Brown over, the officer noticed he was visibly intoxicated and administered an on-site breathalyzer that revealed Brown's blood-alcohol content to be over the legal limit. The officer also discovered Brown's license had been revoked and that he was without insurance.

Brown refused chemical tests at the police station. Police cited and released him.
