A local man was arrested Sunday following an investigation into domestic violence said to have occurred at a home in Winfield on Saturday.

34-year-old Matthew L. Romero was booked into the Cowley County Jail on a single count of aggravated battery. He posted $5,000 bond and was later released, according to jail records.

Romero was arrested in connection with an incident said to have occurred the previous day in the 1300 block of Millington.

He is accused of beating up a female at his residence and causing her to lose consciousness, according to police chief Danny Parker. The woman also had teeth loosened during the attack.

The alleged victim required treatment at a hospital and dental work.

The incident was reported the following day and Romero was arrested at his home.
