Plankinton man wanted for assault, taking child
An arrest warrant was issued last week for a Plankinton man who allegedly choked a woman and took a child from her while she was unconscious.
Raymundo Lopez Lopez, 40, is wanted for aggravated assault, simple assault and taking a minor child from his custodial parent.
At about 10 a.m. on June 18, an Aurora County deputy went to Lopez Lopez's apartment on East Madison Street in Plankinton to perform a welfare check, as Lopez Lopez was believed to have been involved in an assault the night before.
According to court documents, a 5-year-old boy answered the door, and a 4-year-old boy was also present. Lopez Lopez was not at the apartment. The deputy called a translator, as the boys reportedly did not speak English.
A woman then arrived at the apartment and told the deputy Lopez Lopez had come to her apartment on South Campbell Street the previous night and became angry with her. She said Lopez Lopez grabbed her hair and threw her on the floor, hit her eye and put his hands around her throat until she passed out.
The woman reportedly said Lopez Lopez had taken a child from her apartment in the approximately two minutes she was unconscious, and she did not know where he had gone.
The deputy took the woman to Horizon Health Care, where a doctor took X-rays of her face when it was unclear if she had a fracture.
