Mt. Carmel Man Arrested on Assault Charge

The Wabash County Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence in Mt. Carmel on a reference to a domestic in progress. Once the deputy arrived, he determined a domestic battery had occurred and the parties were separated. 32-year-old James A. Mahan and 23-year-old Roberta J. Mahan were arrested and taken into custody. Both were released later in the day with a notice to appear.

However, the next day, an officer was called to do a welfare check and to investigate an additional threat. When the deputy arrived on the scene, the subject had been making threats to others throughout the day. Once the evidence was gathered, it was determined that a threat had been made with an electronic device. James Mahan made his way back to the Wabash County Jail on an assault charge. Mahan is currently being held in the jail for a future detention hearing.
