FD man charged in domestic assault

A man who allegedly assaulted a woman in Fort Dodge was found in Waverly after he left the city.

Kurt D. Davis, 54, of Fort Dodge, is facing charges of willful injury, domestic abuse/assault and possession of a firearm as a convicted felon.

He’s accused of assaulting a Fort Dodge woman Thursday afternoon.

Fort Dodge Police Chief Tim Carmody said at 4:38 p.m., Fort Dodge firefighters and an ambulance from Trinity Regional Medical Center were dispatched to 722 S. 20th St. after receiving a call about an unresponsive woman who had fallen and was bleeding from her head. In addition, Reserve Officer John Garretson responded to the scene to help firefighters and paramedics.

When Garretson arrived, Carmody said he discovered the woman had been assaulted. She was transported to Trinity for treatment.

Information developed by the Fort Dodge police led to Davis being charged in the assault. Carmody said officers learned that Davis may have been heading to Waverly, and the FDPD asked the Waverly Police Department for help in finding Davis.

He was arrested Friday morning by Waverly police, and is expected to be brought back to the Webster County Jail “in the near future,” according to Carmody.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and Bremer County Sheriff’s Department also helped in the investigation.
