Sikeston man arrested for assault, property damage

MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - A Scott County man is facing assault and property damage charges after two unrelated investigations by the Mississippi County Sheriff's Department.

Mississippi County Sheriff Keith Moore says the assault investigation began on Monday when deputies located Larry Temple, 54, of Sikeston, Mo.

Temple was the suspect in an incident which is still under investigation.

At that time, deputies arrested Temple in connection with that offense, and then sent him to the Mississippi County Detention Center.

Temple allegedly assaulted a corrections officer during intake into the facility.

The officer, who was not injured by the attack, quickly regained control over Temple and secured him inside a holding cell.

The property damage charge stems from an unrelated investigation that began on Tuesday, when a Charleston resident came to the Mississippi County Sheriff's Department to report that someone had busted out her living room window.

During the course of that investigation, officials interviewed witnesses and established probable cause to believe Temple had caused the damage by repeatedly slamming his head into the window.

Temple is charged with property damage in the first degree and assault in the third degree.

Temple remains jailed with bond set at $5,500.
