Perrysburg man pleads guilty to assault, burglary


A Perrysburg man accused of violating a protection order by breaking into a family member’s home has pleaded guilty to burglary and assault.

Alexander Carr, 29, appeared Thursday in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Joel Kuhlman.

He was indicted in January for burglary and violating a protection order, both third-degree felonies, and assault, a first-degree misdemeanor.

On Dec. 11, Carr forced entry at the front door of an occupied residence in the 13000 block of Five Point Road and assaulted a man and a woman, who were in bed. The woman was a family member who had requested a temporary protection order against Carr, which had been served just hours prior.

Carr had the TPO in his pocket, said Wood County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Dexter Phillips.

An altercation ensued between the two men and Carr threw numerous punches, Phillips said.

He recommended a sentence of community control and mental health assessment.

The TPO violations will be dismissed at sentencing, which was scheduled for June 1.

Defense attorney Lawrence Gold said his client was hit in the head with a dumbbell, which required stitches.

He asked that bond be modified to remove the GPS monitor being worn by his client.

Kuhlman denied the request and pointed out the defendant had violated a protection order while carrying the order in his pocket.
