MASON CITY – A man listed with a Clear Lake address was arrested for a domestic assault in Mason City this week.

Brandon Clark Manning, 31, was arrested by Mason City Police on Wednesday, September 26th and charged with domestic assault (708.2A(4A)).  The assault Manning is charged with is described as “impeding air/blood flow causing bodily assault.”  Online records describe the assault as a “felony domestic” because the victim required undisclosed medical attention.

Manning was arrested and booked into the Cerro Gordo County Jail at 8:05 AM Wednesday where he is still being held as of Friday.  No bail nor bond has yet been set.

This is not Manning’s first domestic assault charge.

Manning was charged this past July by the Mason City Police Department with domestic assault causing bodily injury/mental illness.  Manning did not show up for his arraignment on July 30th and a warrant for his arrest was issued.  He was picked up by Cerro Gordo County Sheriffs on August 2nd and taken to jail.  Judge Rustin Davenport approved Manning’s release and he left jail on August 3rd.

Online records are incomplete as to when Manning will face trial in the July assault case.


Brandon Clark Manning, 31

    I’m currently going thru the exact kind of charge with my ex finance’in addition to a domestic bodily harm charge for all the bruises. I came to find out he’s done this to his last 3 wives and all the girlfriends in the past. As time goes on, the abuse escalates with a different partner. I’m the one that has gone thru the worst of it. So, my question is to the judge that he’ll go before soon….If he strangled me 3times for approx 30-45sec each time to the point i nearly died, will you let him off easy so he can most likely kill the next woman? What does it take to make them stop? When a victim has their life threatened,whether it be by the abuser’s own hands or a knife or gun or any other weapon, isn’t that attempted murder? How does the judicial system distinguish between them? The way I see it, the way I feel it, there’s no difference when you can see and feel your life being taken from you!

    Keep this guy locked up without bail this time! This doesn’t sound like “felony domestic”. This sounds like “attempted murder”! It shouldn’t matter whether it’s on a domestic inhabitant or not. Is that being used as an excuse? It sounds like it to me. The domestic partner made him mad, he lost his temper, so that excuses his behavior in some way, so let’s let him go and hope the domestic partner doesn’t make him so mad again. To me, domestic just means it will happen over and over and the violence will escalate, so quit letting the perp walk! Domestic abusers cannot control their tempers when they cannot control their domestic partners completely and the violence will never end until the partner leaves. Then the partner is in even more danger and usually does not get the protection s/he needs, so is too afraid to leave. All that can be done is to put the abusers away and try to reprogram their brains.

    I think judges should be held accountable for releasing these criminals. Alot of criminals go back and do more harm to their victim. Police must get tired of arresting these guy’s and in no time they are back on the street again.
