Storm Lake Assault

Storm Lake, IA (KICD) — Two people are charged after an assault incident.

Storm Lake Police were called to the Budget Motel Wednesday afternoon on a domestic assault. Upon arrival, officers met with 34-year old Stella Gore of Cherokee, who said she was physically assaulted by 50-year old Eugene Powell of Storm Lake, after an argument.

Police arrested Powell without incident, and determined he was wanted by Cherokee County for failure to pay fines. Powell was charged with domestic assault, and held in jail without bond.
Police allege Gore was in possession of drug paraphernalia, and as a result, she was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, and jailed on a 300-dollar bond.
