Norfolk man arrested on assault charges in Nebraska, outstanding California warrant
NORFOLK, Neb. -- A northeast Nebraska man was arrested in Norfolk after police discovered he was wanted on an extraditable warrant from California.
On Sunday at 6:48 p.m., Norfolk Police officers were called to a residence in the 600 block of Roland Drive for an alleged assault. The caller reported that 44-year-old Thomas J. Ingram, of Norfolk, threw a cigarette lighter and a lit cigarette at her, causing a burn on her leg. She also said that he had taken her phone in an attempt to keep her from calling for assistance.
Officers had contact with Ingram at a nearby residence and spoke to him about the incidents. He was then placed under arrest for third-degree assault and terroristic threats.
It was also determined that Ingram had a confirmed and extraditable warrant for his arrest out of California for false imprisonment with violence. He was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
