A 23-year-old man was sentenced Feb. 3 in Anoka County District Court on a felony domestic assault conviction.
David Fredrick Tresco was sentenced to 26 months in prison, but given credit for 41 days served in jail. He pled guilty Jan. 7.
According to the criminal complaint, Anoka County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to an Andover home on Christmas morning last year on a report of a domestic incident.
Tresco’s 52-year-old stepfather told authorities that Tresco had threatened to kill him while he had a pair of scissors raised and had chased him down the street, according to the complaint.
After police found Tresco at a neighbor’s home, he admitted he had used meth and had been away for “a couple of days.” He told deputies they were speaking to his “Avatar” and that his real body was at his parents home next door.
His stepfather told authorities that Tresco had just been released from prison and was visiting for Christmas.
This case was elevated to a felony domestic assault because Tresco had at least two qualifying domestic assault related incidents within the past 10 years, according to the complaint.
