41-year-old Marco Schlueter was charged with interference of a 911 call, aggravated assault by strangulation, and vandalism of a $1,200 phone. Schlueter’s charges stem from a 911 call by Homeira Carroll that was abruptly ended during the domestic assault.

On May 20th, MNPD received a 911 call traced to the ICON in the Gulch condominiums but was hung up before the call could be completed. Dispatch recognized the phone number as one linked to a history of domestic violence cases. Upon arrival, officers made contact with Marco Schlueter, who had noticeable scratches on his forehead and neck. When asked about the scratches, Schlueter claimed the marks to be old. Officers proceeded to meet Homeira Carroll, who made the initial call to 911.

Carroll explained that Schlueter suffers from bipolar disorder and began to attack her without reason. MNPD discovered redness along Carroll’s neck and a bump on the back of her head. Carroll was unable to move her right wrist. Schlueter was accused of climbing atop of her and placing his hands over her throat, “choking” her, per the affidavit. Being unable to breathe, Carroll began to claw at Schlueter in attempts to break free, calling 911 in the process. Schlueter proceeded to take the phone away from Carroll and began to try and break the device. The phone was valued at $1,200.

Carroll declined any photos and did not want to press charges. According to the affidavit, Carroll was having difficulty speaking, her voice being extremely hoarse. Based on Carroll’s injuries and statements, Schlueter was decided to be the primary aggressor and was charged.

Marco Schlueter was arrested and charged with interference of a 911 call, vandalism, and assault by strangulation. His total bond was set at $16,000.

Schlueter was later released on bond, but violated the conditions of said bond shortly thereafter, resulting in a bond forfeiture.
