Burglary, 1st Degree Assault on Woman

A home break-in and assault Friday were alleged with the Sheriff’s Office arrest of 27-year-old Caleb Shawn Simmons of 18 East Summit Drive, Ware Shoals. He was charged with 1st Degree Domestic Violence and 2nd Degree Burglary.

Deputy Galloway states that Simmons entered a dwelling on Highway 39, Mountville without consent and with intent to commit the crime of 1st Degree Domestic Violence. He allegedly kicked in the door and assaulted the victim. A second warrant states that Simmons grabbed the victim on her left arm, causing redness and discomfort, with apparent president ability under circumstances reasonably causing fear of imminent peril. He then allegedly attempted to take the victim’s phone, to prevent her from calling 911. This reportedly occurred in the presence of a minor child.

No bond was granted for either charge. Caleb Shawn Simmons remained in the Laurens County Detention Center this morning.
