According to the police report, officers went to the 2000 W. 15th around 8:30 p.m. and when they arrived, they could hear screams from inside the home. They eventually had to forcibly enter the house, where they found evidence that Chauncey Mendoza injured his wife by assaulting and strangling her. 

 Mendoza was arrested for third-degree domestic assault and strangulation. There were children in the home and one of them tried to stop Chauncey from assaulting his mother. Police said Mendoza caused minor injury to the child, so he was also charged with child abuse.

Shoplifting

Also, on Friday, April 11 police charged Jessica Carstensen with helping Matthey Rauterkus, who was accused of stealing from Menard's on April 2.

According the police report, the Menard's staff said Rauterkus changed a price tag from more than $400 to around $80 on a large, boxed, vehicle canopy. He paid the lower price, and then drove around behind the store to load more items that he had purchased from the lawn and garden area.

Investigators believe that Carstensen helped him. Police were told that Rauterkus concealing merchandise that he had not bought but were apparently staged aroudn back to steal, including a surveillance security system and headphones valued at more than $500.

A witness initially told police that a woman in the front seat of the van possibly covered stolen merchandise with a coat as they drove away.

Carstensen is charged with aiding and abetting shoplifting, a felony.

She was processed and released Friday from the Lincoln County Jail.
