Homeless Man Charged With Aggravated Battery To Person Who Allowed Him to Stay at Her Home

March 9, 2017

A 34-year-old homeless man has been formally charged in Marion County Court with aggravated battery to a person who had agreed to let him stay at her house while she attempted to assist him. Bond for Matthew Peters of East Third Street was set at $50,000.

Centralia Police say Mize called from a neighbors home Tuesday to report that Peters was at her home and she wanted him removed. She reported that Peters had choked her and held her against her will in a bedroom of her home for about 24 hours before she escaped and went to the neighbor’s home.

Peters had the public defender appointed to represent him. If released on bond, Peters was ordered to have no contact with Mize. A first appearance and preliminary hearing was set for March 28th.
