Tueday evening, May 30th, at approximately 7:30, Marshall County Police were dispatched to a residence in the 10,000 block of Lincoln Highway for a male that said he was cut by a female and bleeding profusely.

While officers were en route to the scene, 10520 Lincoln Highway, the Central Dispatch Center lost contact with the male.

Officer Wozniak arrived and located the male, 34-year-old Drew DeMask, laying on top of items in a cluttered garage with blood on one of his arms from a laceration. The officer rendered medical aid to him and assisted him from the garage until Plymouth EMS arrived on scene.

During the investigation, it was found that Drew DeMast had battered his significant other, who left the scene for safety.

During his interaction with officers, Drew suddenly became aggressive and began punching himself in the head, at which point he was detained and taken to St. Joseph Hospital in Plymouth for a mental health evaluation. It was found that he committed self-harm to himself after the incident with the female. After being examined at the hospital, he was taken to the Marshall County Jail where he was processed for domestic battery in the presence of a child and held on a $1,500 cash bond.
