Hutchinson Man Charged with Domestic Assault 18 May 17

A Hutchinson man has been charged with two counts of domestic assault after an incident that happened Friday night.

Forty-seven-year-old Jon Gregory Berggren is charged with one count of domestic assault by strangulation and one count of domestic assault-based on a prior conviction.

Police say they responded to a domestic assault call at about 10:30pm in the 1st Block of Glen Street, Northwest.

Police learned that Berggren had barricaded himself in the residence with a knife and was threatening to harm himself. At that time, he was alone in the home, however, prior to police arriving, he had allegedly put his hands to the throat of a juvenile male that had been there. Police say the juvenile male left before they arrived and is okay.

After about an hour of negotiating with Berggren, he came out of the residence without further incident and was arrested.
