Red Lake man pleads guilty to assault

A Red Lake man entered a guilty plea for a serious assault more than two years ago.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 42-year-old Chad Sumner, Sr., admitted to assaulting a woman inside her home on June 30, 2019.

The woman, identified as “Jane Doe,” had a cut above her eye and blood on her clothing. Sumner pleaded to assault with substantial bodily injury.

No sentencing date was announced.
