Ottumwa Man Faces Burglary Charges After Allegedly Breaking into Apartment


An Ottumwa man faces multiple charges after police say he broke into an apartment, tackled one occupant, and threatened another with a knife.

20-year-old Jose Rosalio Hernandez has been charged with first-degree burglary, second-degree burglary, and two counts of violation of a no-contact order.

According to court documents, at approximately 10:06 AM on Wednesday, Hernandez kicked in the door to an apartment on College Street.

A female in the apartment, who has a no-contact order against Hernandez, armed herself with a knife but was disarmed by Hernandez. Hernandez later made threats toward the victim while holding the knife, according to police.

Additionally, Hernandez allegedly tackled a male in the apartment and attempted to assault him.

Hernandez was arrested later the same day and transported to the Wapello County Jail. His bail has been set at $37,000.
