Domestic assault and endangering a child

A Laclede County man is facing multiple charges after an incident at a home on Saturday night. Laclede County Deputies responded to Neosho Drive after a woman showed up at her neighbors home and told him that her husband, Calvin Perry had assaulted her. According to the victim, she was laying down with her infant child, when Perry became angry and accused her of stealing money and giving it to her mother. She said that when she tried to get up he held her down with his arm on her throat, and later slapped her. Another child reportedly came into the room and tried to get him off her mother, and he shrugged her off causing her to fall on the baby. When questioned, Perry told deputies that he didn’t hit the woman and that he was holding her down to keep her from kicking him. Perry is charged with two counts of domestic assault and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. His next court date is November 8th.
