Clarinda Police Chief Keith Brothers reports a 9-1-1 call for help early this (Wednesday) morning resulted in the arrest of 33-year old Matthew Ronald Corey, of Clarinda. Corey who has a long history of run-in’s with the law, now faces a misdemeanor Assault charge, after officers responded to the Parkview Apartments on East Main Street, at around 1:45-a.m. According to Brothers, the 9-1-1 call was with regard to a woman who could be heard screaming for help. When officers spoke with the woman, she  alleged that she had been assaulted by Matthew Corey, who resides in the apartment with the woman. Corey was taken into custody and brought to the Page County Jail, where he was held without bond pending an initial appearance before the Page County Magistrate Court. Brothers said the female did not sustain any injuries that required medical attention.
