Waupaca man charged with battery
Alvin Bentancur Jr., 48, is charged with felony intimidation of a victim, misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct as acts of domestic abuse. He also faces five counts of misdemeanor bail jumping.
On June 23, 2014, Bentancur was charged with misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct with a weapon as acts of disorderly conduct. He was released on a $250 cash bond with the stipulation that he have no contact with the victim.
Bentancur was subsequently charged with misdemeanor bail jumping on July 3, Oct. 6, Nov. 11 and Dec. 8. He was released from custody on a $1,000 signature bond on Dec. 9 with the conditions that he not consume alcohol, not possess weapons and not go on the premises of the victim.
Shortly after 4:10 a.m. Deputies Jon Loken, Bryan Strobusch and Sgt. Kevin Studzinski, of the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Department, responded to a domestic complaint at a home in Farmington. When they arrived, the officers found the woman, identified as the victim in the earlier complaints against Bentancur, outside in a car with the engine running. She was crying and had a bruise on her forehead.
The woman said she had told Bentancur he could come over and get some of his clothes earlier that day.
According to the criminal complaint, Bentancur returned at approximately 3:30 a.m., accused her of sleeping with a neighbor and punched her in the face. He also allegedly threatened to stab her if she called the police. Bentancur denied punching the woman.
Assistant District Attorney Veronica Isherwood requested and Judge Raymond Huber granted a $2,000 cash bail as a condition of Bentancur’s release from custody.
