Sheldon, Iowa — A Sheldon man faces multiple charges, one of them a felony, after an altercation at a rural Sheldon home.
The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office reports that about 5:40 p.m. on Wednesday, their deputies arrested 25-year-old Shaun Arispe of Sheldon on charges of false imprisonment, second degree robbery, two counts of assault, possession of a controlled substance and operating a motor vehicle with a suspended driver’s license.
The Sheriff’s Office says the arrest stemmed from an altercation that occurred in the early morning hours of Tuesday, September 20th, at a home near Sheldon.
Upon further investigation deputies believe that Arispe was involved in a disturbance where he displayed a firearm in a threatening manner and prevented two people from leaving the home for nearly five hours. Deputies believe that during the disturbance, he assaulted the two victims and later took property from their home.
They believe he then allegedly forced the female victim to go with him to his home near Sheldon. They say she was later able to escape unharmed.
The Sheriff’s Office says the O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office, Sheldon Police Department, Rock Valley Police Department and the Iowa State Patrol assisted them.
