WOODLAND – A domestic argument that turned physical ended with one arrest.

On Jan. 18, Northampton Sheriff’s Investigator Altessie Taylor responded to a domestic assault in Arrowhead Mobile Park, located on NC 35 north of Woodland. There the Detective spoke with the victim, a 24 year old pregnant female about the assault.  The victim told law enforcement that her boyfriend, 23-year-old Mainor Sanchez of Woodland, had kicked her in the stomach during an argument.

Northampton County Sheriff Jack Smith reported that the victim obtained warrants on the suspect for assault on a female. Armed with that warrant, Northampton County law enforcement officers returned to the residence and arrested Sanchez.

Sanchez was brought to the Northampton County Sheriff’s Office and processed. Smith said Sanchez was not given a bond, which is mandatory in domestic violence cases.

Sanchez is scheduled to make his first appearance in Northampton County District Court on Monday, Jan. 27.

Northampton Sheriff’s Sgt. Jimmy Pair and Deputies Marcel Goffington and Patrick Jacobs assisted Investigator Taylor in the case.
