Local man endangers children by assaulting wife

A Marshalltown man faces two counts of child endangerment without injury for allegedly assaulting his wife in their car Wednesday.

Police arrested Jose Ordaz, 24, after he allegedly threw a baby's bottle at his wife's head before slamming her to the floor of the couple's car at their home on the 100 block of East Webster Street, said Capt. Mike Hanken, with the Marshalltown Police Department.

The couple's 2-year-old son and 16-month-old daughter were in the car at the time of the alleged assault. Police charged Ordaz with two counts of child endangerment, aggravated misdemeanors, and simple domestic assault, a simple misdemeanor. The victim did not need medical attention.

Police made reports of the arrest available Friday.

Hunting knife gets local man carrying weapons charge

When police responded to a call for a potential theft in progress, they discovered one of the men carrying a 7.5-inch knife.

Capt. Mike Hanken, with the Marshalltown Police Department, said Paul Hopkins, 21, had the knife on him at Walmart Wednesday. When employees at the store suspected he and some people with him planned to steal some merchandise, they called police.

The property was returned to the shelf, but police noticed Hopkins carrying the knife when they spoke with the men, Hanken said.

The knife's total length exceeded the 5-to-8-inch maximum allowed by the Iowa Code, so police asked Hopkins to come into the MPD the following night where they cited him for carrying weapons, an aggravated misdemeanor, and further explained the code to him.
