  • A Grain Valley man faces felony assault charges after a pair of incidents on Sunday.
    The Jackson County Prosecutors Office have charged Gregory W. Rehrer with a count of first-degree domestic assault, a count of first-degree assault, a count of second-degree of assault, a misdemeanor count of assault and a felony count of resisting arrest.
    Rehrer allegedly assaulted two women, one of them his wife, early Sunday morning. Police were called to a disturbance at the home of a friend of Rehrer’s wife just after 2 a.m. Sunday.
    According to court documents, Rehrer went to the friend’s home and demanded his wife return home. He allegedly began choking his wife and threatened to kill her. When the wife’s friend tried to help her, Rehrer allegedly grabbed her by the neck and punched her in the face. Police say he then pushed both women out of the apartment and pushed the friend down a flight of stairs, causing an injury to her leg.
    Police say as Rehrer left the scene, he tried to run over his wife with his car, narrowly missing her. The friend was later taken to a local hospital for treatment.
    At approximately 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Grain Valley police officers attempted to arrest Rehrer at his home. Police say he became aggressive and then pushed and stabbed Sgt. Scott Hedger in the chin with a screwdriver and scratched his neck. While being subdued, he also allegedly threw his head back and head-butted Officer Chris Wilson in the face, cutting his lip. Hedger was treated at a local hospital and released following the arrest.
    Rehrer’s bond was set at $200,000 and he has been transferred to the Jackson County Detention Center.
