WARSAW — A Warsaw man has been arrested on four charges stemming from a Sept. 28 incident in Warsaw.
David Castillejo Sr., 34, booked under the address of 2441 W 250S, Warsaw, has been arrested on charges of domestic battery with a child under 16 years of age present and intimidation, both level 6 felonies; and domestic battery and interference with the reporting of a crime, class A misdemeanors. Court dockets show his address is 5124 Reformatory Road, Pendleton.
Warsaw Police Officer Rogelio Navarro responded to a call around 7:11 p.m.on Sept. 28, of an argument in progress in the city limits. He spoke with both Dawn Parks and David Castillejo. Parks told police she and Castillejo were arguing regarding him using her vehicle. During the argument she stated she was going to contact police because of the damage he caused to the vehicle. Parks alleges Castillejo told her she was not going to call police and grabbed her left wrist causing pain. Navarro could see the red mark left behind. Parks stated this took place in the presence of three of their children.
Castellejo refused to give police a formal statement, only stating they have been arguing about the van and he was agitated and finished with her “drama.” He also stated he was done talking with police and walked away.
Several hours later, at 9:01 p.m., Officer Phillip Hawks was called by Parks’ husband, Timothy Croy, who stated Castillejo wanted to use her van and when she refused to let him, he became angry. Castellejo attempted to intimidate Croy, telling him he was going to kill him. Several witnesses confirmed the verbal threat.
He is being held on $5,000 surety and $250 cash bond.
