A man has been ordered to post $2,500 bail after being charged with disturbing the peace, criminal mischief, assault and battery, and domestic violence during a bail hearing last Friday in Superior Court.
William Indalecio Jr. wasn’t able to post bail and was remanded back to the Department of Corrections.
Indalecio Jr.’s preliminary hearing is set on Jan. 17, 2014 at 9am. Next appearance is set on Jan. 22 at 9am.
Last Jan. 4 police officer Joel Ignacio responded to a 911 call at about 8:47pm and found the victim at the entrance of of Achive Lane in Finasisu. Ignacio learned from the victim that on Wednesday, Jan. 3, at about 8:40pm she was home and heard a loud knock at the front door.
The victim was with her children and her ex-husband who was visiting at that time.
She opened the door and saw her ex-husband and suspect, William Indalecio Jr., standing outside the screen door.
Indalecio Jr. was instructed by the victim to leave but the former attempted to open her screen door that was locked. He then went to the back side of her vehicle and tried to break the rear windshield wiper.
The victim opened the screen door and told him to stop and at this time, Indalecio Jr. came toward her, grabbed her hair with his right hand, and slapped the victim on her right cheek with his left hand. The victim cried for neighbors help and asked to call 911.
Last Jan. 4, Ignacio returned to the crime scene and met the 911 caller, the ex-husband of the victim, at Mango Apartment in Finasisu.
The ex-husband stated that he came to the apartment to visit his cousin which is the victim’s neighbor. The victim invited him to go inside and spend time with his children.
While inside the bedroom with his children, the ex-husband heard a knock on the bedroom window and told the victim. When the victim opened the door he heard Indalecio Jr. shouting curse words.
When the ex-husband saw the victim inside, she was crying while holding her right cheek and messy hair as if someone pulled it.
He asked what happened and the victim responded that Indalecio Jr. slapped her and pulled her hair. Instead of going outside to fight with Indalecio Jr., he decided to call 911 for police assistance.
The bail hearing was held at the courtroom of Superior Court Associate Judge Wesley M. Bogdan.
