Man charged with burglary, assault

FAIRMONT – A 19-year-old Fairmont man faces charges of first-degree burglary and fifth-degree assault for allegedly breaking into a woman’s apartment and assaulting her.

According to information from the Fairmont Police Department:

Around 4 a.m. Sunday, a Fairmont police officer responded to a call involving drug court. When the officer arrived at the scene, he saw the woman in question had a bleeding cut on her forehead. She told the officer someone broke into her apartment and assaulted her. She eventually identified the man as Dalton James Subbert.

She told police she woke up to find Subbert standing over her bed, and he accused her of being high. He then pulled the woman out of bed and was throwing her around the room. The woman ended up hitting her head on the corner of a dresser and also had her head pinned to the floor near her bed frame.

Police were aware there was a no-contact order for Subbert, and he was to have no contact with the woman.

While speaking with police, Subbert called the woman, and the call was recorded by police. During the call, Subbert talked about being at the woman’s apartment and about the altercation. A short time after the call ended, Subbert showed up at the scene and turned himself over to police.

The next day, Subbert was interviewed and he admitted to police that he broke into the woman’s apartment and was worried about her getting high. He claimed the woman asked him over, and that she had lashed out at him when he asked her about being high.

The woman was given a drug test and tested clean after the incident was reported.

The first-degree burglary charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $35,000 fine. The fifth-degree assault charge carries a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Walleye reproduction in spotlight

NEW BRIGHTON (AP) – The Department of Natural Resources hosts a public discussion today about walleye reproduction in Mille Lacs Lake.

The DNR says the “Hooked on Mille Lacs” event is intended to share biological information and answer citizens’ questions related to past, present and future walleye reproduction in one of Minnesota’s most popular fisheries.

Fisheries managers are trying to gain a better understanding of why Mille Lacs’ walleye population is at a 40-year-low. A major problem is the vast majority of hatchlings don’t survive to their second autumn.

The DNR has imposed tight regulations to try to help the walleye population recover, but recently lifted a night fishing ban.
