Man charged with 4 counts of assault with a weapon
A Helena man is behind bars after police say he struck a vehicle with a baseball bat on Wednesday, while 4 other men were inside.
18 year old Joshua Willhoft is charged with 4 counts of assault with a weapon, and 1 count of misdemeanor criminal mischief. According to court documents, Willhoft admitted to breaking the window of a yellow Dodge truck with a bat. Captain Steve Hagen of the Helena Police Department says the 4 men in the truck walked away from the incident with minor injuries.
Hagen says, "We're still looking at whether or not the other individuals may be charged with a crime like disorderly conduct or something like that. But as of right now these are the only charges that are filed and the city attorney will look at any additional charges maybe against the other parties involved."
Hagen says $500 of damage was caused to the vehicle.
