MOUNT PLEASANT, MI – On Saturday October 6th 2018, at approximately 8:00AM, Troopers from the Michigan State Police Mount Pleasant Post were dispatched to a domestic assault in progress at the Maple View Trailer Park located on Pickard Rd. in Isabella County.
Troopers were advised that Roman G. Garcia, 46 year old, was highly intoxicated and had just assaulted and strangled a female. Garcia also assaulted a child within the residence with a belt.
The adult victim was able to flee from the residence and call 911 from the neighbor’s residence. When troopers arrived on scene, Roman Garcia was in the residence with two minor children, but refused to come out. Garcia would not allow either minor to open the door or leave while police were attempting to call them out safely.
