Within the past month, three separate felony cases have been filed against Joshua S. Demeniuk, 28, New London.
His most recent charges include burglary, theft, illegal possession of a prescription drug, disorderly conduct and four counts of felony bail jumping.
On Sept. 3, 2013, Demeniuk appeared in court on charges of felony strangulation, felony intimidation of a victim, battery and disorderly conduct as acts of domestic abuse. He was released on a $2,000 signature bond with the conditions that he have no contact with the victim named in the complaint and not commit any crimes.
On Feb. 3, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy James Santiago was dispatched to a home in the town of Lebanon.
The home’s owner told Santiago she was renting a room to Demeniuk, and he had been acting strangely.
While Santiago was talking to the owner, Demeniuk reportedly stuck his head out from his room and said, “I have something to show you.”
According to the criminal complaint, Demeniuk had medication in a container and accused the landlady of overmedicating herself. He denied taking any of the medications himself.
Santiago then handcuffed Demeniuk and placed him in the squad car. Demeniuk was later transported to the New London hospital for observation.
The landlady said Demeniuk had taken her camera without her permission and refused to return it to her. She also reported more than a dozen of her prescription pills were missing.
Demeniuk allegedly entered her bedroom by crawling through an opening between two closets.
When the deputy searched Demeniuk’s bedroom, he reported finding 15 pills.
Also on Feb. 3, the woman who had been named in the September domestic abuse complaint called New London police and reported Demeniuk had contacted her in violation of his bond.
The woman told New London Police Sgt. Todd Sarazin that Demeniuk called her and said he was sorry for what he did to her, he had found God in his life, and he needed her help to get a U-Haul, the complaint says.
Sarazin then went to the New London hospital, where Demeniuk had been transported.
Demeniuk reportedly denied making the call and said his friend, “Brian,” had called the woman. But he did not know “Brian’s” last name or how to get a hold of him.
