Aggravated assault charge dismissed

An aggravated assault charge was dismissed on Friday against Rafael Damion Larios, 26, of Burlington.

A trial on the Class C felony charge had ended in a mistrial after the jury was unable to come to a unanimous verdict and the state opted to dismiss the charge rather than try the case again.

Larios had been accused of assaulting his girlfriend during a domestic dispute in October 2017 in Burlington.

Court records show that North Central District Court Judge Gary Lee signed the order of dismissal on Friday.
