A man arrested on domestic assault and other charges in November is accused of calling the victim several times while he was in the Iredell County Detention Center.

Devon Lamar Heggs was arrested last week for violating his pre-trial release conditions and received a $75,000 bond, the Statesville Police Department reported.

Police indicated Heggs was first arrested on Nov. 26, 2019, after they investigated a domestic disturbance in the 200 block of Deaton Street. After the initial investigation, warrants were taken out on Heggs for assault on a female, interfering with emergency communication, communicating threats and interfering with an electronic monitoring device.

On Dec. 26, an additional warrant for habitual misdemeanor assault was taken out due to Heggs’ extensive criminal history of domestic violence, police said in a news release.

The United States Marshals Service and North Carolina Probation and Parole officers partnered with the SPD on Jan. 2 for a warrant service that resulted in Heggs’ arrest.

During the background portion of this investigation, officers learned Heggs made several calls from the detention center and the majority were made to the victim of the November assault, police said.
