A Northeast Missouri man is charged with attempted murder after a weekend assault.
Arnold Pargeon was arrested during a domesic disturbance call Sunday night at a home in Perry.
Ralls County Sheriff's Deputies say when they arrived on scene, a woman was yelling for help inside.
The woman was taken to the hospital for treatment and later released.
Authorities say the severity of the victim's injuries are what prompted the attempted murder charges, but wouldn't say whether a weapon was involved.
Pargeon is set to appear in court Wednesday morning.
