Kombo charged with burglary and assault

Daniel Maingi Kombo, 30, Cushing, was charged with one felony count each of first degree burglary and domestic assault and one count of fifth degree misdemeanor assault by Morrison County Attorney Brian Middendorf and his staff.

On Jan. 24, a Cushing resident went to the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office to report an assault by her ex-boyfriend the previous day.

The victim told officers she lived with Kombo up until June 2012. Then on Jan. 23, he contacted her saying he was missing his passport and thought it may still be at her home.

Kombo wanted to come to the victim’s home to look for the passport, but was told no. A few minutes later, he walked into the house without permission.

According to the criminal complaint, Kombo was told to leave several times, but he refused. An argument ensued and Kombo grabbed the victim by the face and pushed her onto the bed. He climbed on top of her and put his hand around her throat.

The victim told officers it became difficult for her to breathe. She said she finally was able to get him off her and he left shortly afterwards.

Allegedly, the assaults have occurred on other occasions without being reported.

If convicted, Kombo faces a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment and/or a $35,000 fine for the burglary charge.
