Roosevelt, Ut.- On 2/20/23, Officers were dispatched to a domestic violence incident where the complainant stated that his mother and her husband were involved in a physical altercation.
When officers arrived, the complainant and victim stated that the suspect, who was identified as Sascha Gerard, had left the residence on foot.
Officers spoke to the victim and asked what had taken place. The victim stated that she believed Sascha was texting other women, and she tried to look at his phone, and that is when he pushed her into the shelf, but it didn’t leave any marks, except on her right index finger and thumb.
The victim stated that after that, things calmed down that is when Sascha began banging his head on the bathroom door and the living room walls. The victim said they were in the living room, and Sascha grabbed her by the throat, and that hadn't happened in a long time, so she panicked.
The victim was asked if she had lost consciousness or lost vision. She stated she didn't lose vision and remained conscious.
The victim said that is when her son arrived and called 911, and Sascha left the house on foot. There was also a juvenile in the residence who witnessed the incident.
There was damage to the door, remote control, and holes in the walls where Sascha was banging his head into the walls. There was physical evidence regarding Sascha pushing the female into the master bathroom shelf, grabbing the victim's throat, breaking the remote, and hitting his head on the bathroom door and living room wall, all in the presence of a 17-year-old juvenile.
Officers were unable to locate Sascha that night.

Sascha asked if his wife could come and talk to us.
