Villa Ridge Man Charged With Domestic Assault and Child Endangerment

A Villa Ridge man is facing charges of first degree domestic assault and endangering the welfare of a child.  The suspect, 22-year old Aaron Barton is being held in the Franklin County Jail on a $50,000 cash bond.  Franklin County Sheriff's Deputies were called to a home in the 800 block of Destiny Drive in Villa Ridge after 5 am on Tuesday for a report of a domestic disturbance.  Officials say Barton allegedly assaulted his wife while she was holding their infant son.  The woman tried to leave the house, but Barton caught her, dragged her back inside and assaulted her again.  He also took her cell phone to prevent her from call 911.  She was eventually able to find her phone and call authorities.  Barton was arrested without incident and taken to the Franklin County Jail in Union.
