COLUMBIA — Police arrested a 20-year-old man wanted for burglary, third degree domestic assault and second degree endangering the welfare of a child late Thursday night.

Jon-Eric Kendall Lee, of Columbia, spent Thursday night in the Boone County Jail after police arrested him in the 1400 block of Wilkes Boulevard around 11:03 p.m, according to the Columbia Police Department. He was held on $39,000 bail.

Lee was wanted for an incident that occurred Aug. 21 during which he allegedly assaulted the mother of his 1-year-old child. The mother locked Lee out of her house, according to public information officer Jill Wieneke. He broke into the home and told her to put the child down. The victim refused. Lee then grabbed her by the throat and forced her into a wall.

In addition, Lee had outstanding warrants for the distribution, delivery, and manufacturing of a controlled substance, second degree trafficking, leaving the scene of an accident and property damage, according to police.

Lee has several prior arrests on his record, including possession of marijuana and resisting arrest, according to Boone County Court records on
