Dustin Ray Rosburg, 32, faces charges of domestic violence causing serious bodily injury and felonious restraint.
A Thompson, N.D., man made his initial court appearance this week for assaulting and seriously injuring a woman over the weekend.
Dustin Ray Rosburg, 32, faces charges of domestic violence causing serious bodily injury, and felonious restraint. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine for each charge.
Grand Forks County Sheriff's deputies responded to a domestic violence call just before 11:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 30. According to court documents, the caller reported that Rosburg threw the victim down two flights of stairs, strangled her, put his hand in her mouth causing her to bleed and did not allow her to leave the residence.
Law enforcement noted that the victim had marks on her face.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, Rosburg was arrested for attempted murder, but he has not been formally charged with that crime.
Rosburg's bail was set at $3,500 cash or surety, and he bonded out of custody after making his initial appearance in court on Monday, Aug. 31. As part of the conditions of his release, he was ordered not to contact the victim.
A second court date has yet to be set in the case.
