Man faces charges of burglary, assault in local disturbance

An El Dorado Springs man was arrested and charged with burglary after a domestic disturbance Friday in Joplin, but police have yet to locate a suspect in a domestic assault on Sunday.

Police were called at 8:20 a.m. Friday to the home of Krista R. Dipman, 19, on East Yuma Street after a male acquaintance who went there to pick up some possessions reportedly spotted another man in the house and pushed his way inside.

Gregory M. Rosenbaum, 23, allegedly punched and put a headlock on Thomas A. Sams, 27, of Joplin, before throwing a dog at Dipman. Neither Sams nor Dipman required medical attention, according to police Lt. Charla Geller.

Rosenbaum left the residence before police arrived but was later arrested. He was charged with first-degree burglary and misdemeanor domestic assault.

Geller said a suspect in a separate case Sunday night at a residence in the 300 block of North Joplin Avenue had yet to be located by late Monday afternoon. Sabrina J. Wagner, 36, was taken to Freeman Hospital West for treatment of injuries she suffered when a male acquaintance punched her and kicked her in the head.
