According to Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent, when Officer Stahl arrived he learned that a group of teens were inside a home when they heard a knock at the door. One of the females inside answered the door to find her ex-boyfriend outside with another person. When she told him to leave, she was grabbed and pulled outside.
Others came outside to help her and they were also assaulted by the girl’s ex-boyfriend. Parent said that the suspect used a metal object, commonly known as brass knuckles, causing injuries to three individuals. One of those injured was the adult homeowner, who was awakened and told about the problem outside. A 16-year old female was treated at United Memorial Hospital for a laceration near her left eye.
Officer Stahl located the suspect nearby and he was arrested and lodged in jail. Zachery Otto Goodin. 17, of Morley, will face numerous charges. The Prosecutor’s Office issued two felony assault charges (assault with a dangerous weapon), and two misdemeanor charges—one for domestic assault and one for simple assault based upon the complaint and persons injured.
Goodin was arraigned on Monday, February 25 , in 63rd District Court. Bond was set at $2,000cash/surety. He has bonded out.
