The Grand Forks County Sheriff’s office says a man was arrested following a domestic assault Thursday night.
Arriving at the scene around 8:45, officials say they found a female victim outside the residence.
Upon entering the residence, deputies found that the man had left, leaving a young child alone inside.
Officials say, about 25 minutes later, after a search, the suspect -- Preston Hamilton – was found hiding under some brush.
Authorities say Hamilton was charged with simple assault-domestic, a failure-to-appear warrant form Slope County, and an active warrant from the U-S Marshal Service.
