Mitchell Man Behind Bars for Vacuum Cleaner Assault
Breaking into an ex-girlfriend's home and attacking her with a vacuum cleaner can get you 26 years in prison. That's exactly what a Mitchell man is facing.
A pretty violent story here. Thirty six-year old Jacob Stulken was arrested on two counts of simple assault causing bodily injury and first-degree burglary.
Court documents show that Stulken allegedly punched his former girlfriend in the face several times and then hit her over the head with a vacuum cleaner. He is also accused of hitting the ex-girlfriend's mother over the head with a bottle and punching her also.
Stulken left the scene, but police located him after a four day search. He has been placed in jail. He is due in court for trial on February 13.
First-degree burglary is a Class 2 felony, punishable upon conviction by up to 25 years in prison and a $50,000 fine. Simple assault causing bodily damage is a Class 1 misdemeanor, punishable upon conviction by up to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
