Stroud man charged with felony assault


A Stroud man has been charged in Lincoln County with a felony following his arrest by Stroud police in December.

Brandon Darrell Gordon, 42, was formally charged on Dec. 28 last month in Lincoln County District Court with Domestic Assault and Battery in presence of a minor.

A probable cause affidavit states Gordon was arrested on Friday, Dec. 18, after an alleged assault on a woman identified as his wife who is separated from him. Another woman, who reportedly witnessed the incident, provided police with a video that reportedly showed Gordon standing in the front yard of a residence being told to leave multiple times by the victim and the witness.

The seven-year-old daughter of the witness told police she observed Gordon “choke” the victim.

The information filed against Gordon states he also was convicted of Domestic Assault on May 17, 2011.

The current crime is punishable by imprisonment for four years up to life.

The affidavit also stated that Gordon had been ordered by the court not to have any contact with the victim due to a previous charge filed against him several weeks before on Nov. 5, 2020. In that case, he is charged with Domestic Abuse–Assault and Battery.

On the charge filed Dec. 28 against Gordon, a $3,000 bond was set on condition he have no contact with the victim. Associate District Judge Sheila Kirk set an initial appearance for Gordon at 1:30 p.m. Jan 28.

On the charge filed against him in November, Special Judge Emily Mueller set a $3,000 bond on the same condition in the Dec. 28 count and scheduled him for the disposition docket at 10 a.m. on Feb.1, this year.

Supplemental information filed by District Attorney Allan Grubb states Gordon was sentenced in 2002 to one year on a conviction of Assault and Battery in the presence of a minor. He was also sentenced to four years in prison on a felony conviction of Domestic Assault and Battery in July of 2013, the information says.
