Domestic assaults top police activity.


AMBER TOWNSHIP — Mason County sheriff’s deputies arrested two suspects in separate incidents for domestic violence and other charges Tuesday, Oct. 3, according to Sgt. Eric Soneral.

The first incident at 1 a.m. in the 1500 block of US 10 resulted in the arrest of Christopher Joseph Sekenske Jr., 22, of Ludington on charges of first-degree home invasion, third-degree home invasion, domestic assault and marijuana possession.

Following a 911 call reporting a “disturbance” at the residence, sheriff’s deputies and Michigan State Police troopers observed the front door broken and located the suspect in the victim’s bedroom, stated Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole. Sekenske had a past dating relationship with the victim, Cole said.

Sekenske, who has been arraigned in 79th District Court, remains lodged in the Mason County Jail on a $15,000 cash/surety bond.

The second incident at 8:37 p.m. in the 4800 block of US 10 in Pere Marquette Township yielded the arrest of a 25-year-old Branch man on charges of interference with a telecommunications device, domestic assault and parole violation. ​

The suspect was arrested following an “assault” call in a business parking lot, Cole said. “Upon arrival, deputies located the victim with a facial injury and learned the suspect had reportedly left the area. He was located by Lake County deputies and arrested. He remains lodged in the Mason County Jail,” the sheriff said.
