CHEROKEE COUNTY, Kan. – Cherokee County deputies arrest a Weir man on allegations of aggravated domestic battery and kidnapping.

“As Domestic Violence Awareness comes to an end, this incident serves as a reminder that domestic violence is serious and nobody should live in fear of being physically assaulted by someone they are in a relationship with. Anyone who is experiencing an abusive relationship is encouraged to call one of our local domestic violence resources, Safehouse Crisis Center at 1-800-794-9148 or the Kansas Crisis Center at 1-888-END-ABUSE,” stated Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves.

Monday’s arrest comes after an investigation into a physical altercation. The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office says during the altercation, a household member allegedly tried to keep the victim from escaping and seeking help. The victim suffered injuries during the incident.

Kansas Court documents do not show official charges at this time.
