Eustace Miles, 49, of Moorhead, Minnesota, pleaded guilty at the Davison County Public Safety Center to aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon. A sentence hearing is scheduled for Jan. 23.

According to court documents, on July 17, 2016, Miles entered a residence on South Miller Street in Mitchell and confronted a woman while she was in the shower.

Miles assaulted her by punching her in the head, striking her with a belt, an extension cord and a clock radio. Miles also jabbed a pair of scissors into her ear and threatened to kill her.

The victim stated to law enforcement she was repeatedly assaulted by Miles for approximately an hour and a half. The victim also stated Miles refused to let her leave the residence until she promised she would not report the incident.

Miles followed the victim as she drove to Avera Queen of Peace Hospital for her injuries, court documents state. Shortly after arriving at the hospital, Miles left the area. Mitchell Police officers located Miles and placed him under arrest.

Aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon is a Class 3 felony, punishable upon conviction by up to 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.
