Great Bend Police responded to two unrelated domestic calls Sunday that resulted in felony arrests.
Police were dispatched to 2717 28th St. at 1:59 a.m. Sunday and arrested Benny Mulligan, who was booked on suspicion of aggravated battery in lieu of $75,000 bond, according to the Barton County Jail log.
Capt. Bob Robinson said Mulligan and the alleged victim had been to a wedding dance and had reportedly been drinking heavily. They arrived home and began arguing, and at some point he allegedly battered and choked her. The woman ran away and a patrolling officer confronted Mulligan, who ran from the officer but was later found and arrested.
The second incident was reported at 3:57 p.m. Sunday.
Chris Burnett, 25, Great Bend, was arrested at 906 Harrison Apt. E after an altercation. He was booked into the Barton County Jail for aggravated assault, and battery, with bond set at $20,000.
As officers were approaching the apartment on foot they reportedly heard a male yell, “I am going to ...” using an obscenity which they believe was a threat to kill someone. They entered and saw the suspect holding a phone. “A white female was hiding behind a couch in fear,” Robinson said. Another male in the room was the alleged victim.
The investigations are continuing.
