Warrant Issued for IGH Man accused of Assaulting, Threatening Woman

Willie Samuel Shaw, 32, is charged with a felony and a gross misdemeanor as result of the May 1 incident.

A nationwide warrant has been issued for an Inver Grove Heights man accused of assaulting the mother of his children at their home on May 1.

Willie Samuel Shaw, 32, is charged with making terroristic threats, a felony punishable with up to five years in jail and a $3,000 fine; and gross misdemeanor domestic assault, punishable of up to a year in jail and a $900 fine.

According to the Dakota County District Court complaint:

Shaw allegedly verbally assaulted, kicked the shin and threw a remote control at the victim after her mother came to the home to retrieve a dog. Shaw and the victim’s mother reportedly exchanged words, and Shaw “flipped out” when the victim’s mother left.

During the incident, Shaw allegedly threatened to “snap her neck” of the victim and assault and kill her family if police intervened. He also attempted to overturn a couch.

The victim ran from the residence after Shaw threatened to snap her neck.

Inver Grove Heights Police investigated the incident.

Shaw has a prior conviction for domestic assault, in July 2011, according to the criminal complaint.

He'll probably get a 21 month stayed sentence, as did the guy from SSP who threatened is girlfriend and her kids. I swear, why women are attracted to scum like this and why Dakota County judges are so afraid to send these creeps to jail is beyond me. Again I speak from experience. My ex made threats and did violent things to me. The judge in his case gave him a 24 month stayed sentence, dropped the felony threat charge as well as the interfering with a 911 phone call charge (he ripped the phone cord from the wall when I tried to call 911) and all he did was counseling for two years.When judges realize the severity of the situation and start putting these guys away will our towns be safe. Because I say this from fact: these guys won't stop until they ARE stopped....

This man is scum. I have known of him for many years. I have a few friends that know him pretty well. He has physically abused his girlfriend for years. He also has a charge from when his son was little and he physically harmed him, not sure of the exact details. He is a woman and child beater. He also thinks he is God's gift to women. The few times I have ran into him at mutual friend's houses, he has hit on me. One time he actually told me his Girlfriend's work hours and told me come over anytime when she is not there. I hope his girlfriend gets the help she needs to get rid of him and the law punishes him accordingly,
