Man Accused of Assaulting Fiancé Drove Self to Sheriff’s Office, Claimed She had Assaulted Him
We can now show you the man accused of assaulting his fiancé with fire and a chainsaw.
His arrest comes after an investigation that started when MSP Troopers were called to the ER at Cadillac Munson.
They were there to investigate an assault that had occurred elsewhere.
The assault happened on Wednesday, outside the Village of Temple, which is in Clare County’s Redding Township.
The victim, a 38-year-old woman from Madison Heights, had sustained serious injuries during a domestic assault with her fiancé, a 47-year-old man from Clinton Township.
The suspect allegedly attacked her with a chainsaw before dragging her through a fire and then hitting and kicking her.
The woman was able to flee the scene on foot and a passerby picked her up, taking her to the EMS station in Marion.
From there she was taken to Munson in Cadillac.
The suspect, now identified as 46-year-old Robert Presley Jr from Clint Township, then drove himself to the Clare County Sheriff’s Office.
There he said that his fiancé had assaulted him.
Deputies determined that not only was he drunk when he drove himself to the sheriff’s office, but he had nine guns and ammunition within plain sight in his vehicle.
Presley is on probation for felony weapons offenses.
He has been charged with multiple offenses, including assault with intent to murder, torture, nine counts of possession of firearms by a felon, drunk driving, and habitual offender.
He is held on a $1.2 million bond and will be back in court for a probable cause hearing on June 21st.
