A Wakeman woman was in Hofer’s bedroom sometime Friday morning or afternoon when he “snapped” and attacked her, according to a Huron police report.
The woman said Hofer repeatedly struck her, both with a closed fist and open hand, the report said.
Hofer then allegedly pinned her to the ground, wrapped his hands around her neck and began choking her.
Hofer let up on his attack, telling her to go, then changed his mind and told her to stay, the report said. The woman walked out into a hallway, but Hofer followed her and continued the assault.
He allegedly struck her in the mouth again several times, causing her tooth to pierce through her lip, the report said. Hofer then left the woman alone, so she stayed at his house and napped. But when her brother found out about the assault later that day, he called a few friends to pick them up from Hofer’s home, the report said.
Hofer arrived home just as the group was preparing to leave and allegedly started another altercation. A friend of Hofer’s passed him an object — later found to be a baseball bat — which he brandished at the group while threatening to assault them, the report said.
Hofer was arrested Tuesday and taken to the Erie County jail. He remains there without bond.
