LINCOLN COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A Lincoln County man has been charged with domestic assault after allegedly hitting a woman multiple times.

On March 25, 2018, authorities were called out to the 100 block of Pine Street in Old Monroe, after emergency dispatch received a call from 51-year-old resident that was woman was injured on his street.

When deputies arrived, they observed a woman with multiple injuries to her head. The victim was transported by ambulance to a local hospital.

Deputies on scene observed blood on the home’s front door and porch.

Didden showed the deputies his home surveillance system, which appeared to show him assaulting the victim.

Didden told investigators they were heavily drinking during the night and when they arrived at his residents the victim assaulted him, which caused him to forcefully push her away. However, surveillance did not show his account of the alleged assault.

Under further investigation, investigators were granted a search warrant to access all of Didden’s home video surveillance. The video showed Didden hit the woman, with a gun, multiple times in her head on the front porch.

Investigators could see the victim stumble off the front porch and eventually collapse in the street unconscious.

Police say Didden was located in Alabama and taken into custody. Didden was charged with felony first-degree domestic assault, felony armed criminal action and third-degree domestic assault.

Didden is currently awaiting extradition to Missouri under a $75,000 cash only bond.
