Deputies arrest a Simpson man, with a history of violence, after they said he assaulted another woman on Saturday night.

According to Olmsted County Sheriff's Office, Patrick O'Connell, 39, of Simpson, was harassing a 26-year-old woman through repeated messages. The victim met O'Connell to make him stop, but he then became enraged.

Olmsted County deputies said O'Connell opened the door to the woman's vehicle, took $100 in cash, a stack of lottery tickets, and her phone. He continued to message her an hour later and said he was coming to her house in Stewartville. Deputies arrested O'Connell before he arrived.

O'Connell is charged of Domestic Abuse No Contact violation, domestic assault, and interfering with a 911 call.
