Versailles Man Charged in Serious Assault and Burglary

Camdenton, MO - 04-17-23 - Early Saturday morning, 04-15-23, deputies responded to a residence on Westpark Drive in Camdenton after Communications Officers received several 911 hang-up calls.  Upon arrival, deputies discovered an ongoing disturbance and detained 37-year-old Patrick W Long. 


Long initially gave a false name to deputies on scene.  During the investigation two victims identified Long and described the disturbance.  Long and one of the female victims had an ongoing romantic relationship but had argued a few hours earlier.  Long then left the woman in Sunrise Beach without a ride home.  The woman then contacted a friend who gave her a ride home to the Westpark Drive residence.  Shortly after the two women arrived at the residence, Long arrived and kicked in the front door.  He then shoved one of the victims into a wall, began strangling her with both hands, and punched her about the head and face several times.  That victim was later transported to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment.


Long is charged with the Class B Felony of Assault in the 1st Degree and the Class B Felony of Burglary in the 1st Degree.  He is being held without bond.

A reminder that these charges are merely allegations of wrongdoing. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
