Cerro Gordo County, Iowa – A Cerro Gordo County man is facing three felonies in connection to violating a no-contact order.
Joshua Diekhuis, 36, is being held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on charges of burglary, violation of a no-contact order and enhanced domestic assault, all felonies. He is also facing simple misdemeanor charges for violating a no-contact order and obstruction of emergency communications.
According to court documents, Diekhuis, went to an address on Wheelerwood Dr. in Clear Lake Nov. 21 at 3:29 p.m. and violated a no-contact order. While at the residence, he did assault the victim, police said. After leaving, he allegedly sent text messages to the victim to also violate the NCO.
