On April 24, 2020 at approximately 4:52 p.m. Texas County deputies responded to a domestic disturbance at a residence on Fays Lane in the Dunn area. Upon arriving at the residence, a female subject reported that a male subject, later identified as Gary Raschko had assaulted her by choking her and throwing objects at her. Raschko was located inside the residence and arrested by deputies.  A rifle and pistol were found in the room with Raschko who is a convicted felon and registered sex offender. Raschko was transported to the Texas County Jail. 
Texas County Prosecuting attorney Parke Stevens charged Gary W. Raschko, age 48, of Mtn. Grove with Domestic Assault 2nd degree and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm. Raschko was held in the Texas County Jail pending a $200,000 bond.    
The above charges are mere accusations and are not evidence of guilt. Evidence in support of the charges must be presented before a court of competent jurisdiction whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
