An area man faces two felonies in connection with a domestic violence call Monday.

Jeremy Lewis, 39, of Bucyrus, is charged with felonious assault and using weapons while under disability.

Lewis was arrested in connection with a domestic disturbance on North Prospect Street, which was reported at 9:15 p.m. According to the report, four Norwalk police officers responded to the scene and were there nearly 80 minutes. After Lewis was arrested, he was transported to the Huron County Jail.

Norwalk Assistant Law Director Scott Christophel said Lewis reportedly had a .22-caliber rifle in his possession and since he has a felony drug conviction, he isn't allowed to possess any weapons.

About the felonious assault charge, Christophel said the allegation is Lewis caused serious physical harm to someone or attempted to cause serious physical harm with a deadly weapon.

"I don't want to give any specifics to the allegations for several reasons," Christophel said without elaborating.

It's unknown if anyone went to the hospital. Christophel said the suspect knows the male victim, whose age wasn't available.
