A Bowling Green man is facing criminal charges of domestic assault, kidnapping and animal abuse, according to electronic court records.
Daniel Scott Haun, 35, of Bowling Green, faces a second-degree charge of domestic assault, a second-degree charge of kidnapping and a misdemeanor charge of animal abuse after authorities allege that he severely attacked an unidentified woman on November 18.
According to the probable cause statement filed with the Pike County Circuit Court Clerk’s office, officers were dispatched to Haun’s residence on West Centennial around 7 a.m. on November 19.
At that time, authorities say they learned from the unidentified woman that Haun had attacked her the previous night.
During the encounter, the woman said that Haun repeatedly blocked her attempts to leave the West Centennial Avenue home that they share.
When the woman’s canine companion tried to intervene, Haun reportedly threw the dog against a wall. Court records do not detail whether the dog nor the woman received medical attention.
According to authorities, the woman told them that her head and neck were still sore from the attack hours after the encounter.
A warrant for Haun’s arrest was issued on Monday; however, he was not in custody as of press time.
Haun has previous convictions in Audrain County for two similar charges of domestic assault in April 2009 and False Imprisonment in April 2018.
