The Missoula County Attorney’s Office had to deal with over 15 cases this past week. County Attorney Kirsten Pabst says a third of the crimes were violent in nature.

“We had five violent crimes,” said Pabst. “Three of them involved partner or family members. One was an assault with a weapon. The alleged weapon was a horseshoe, which obviously can cause considerable damage. There was an assault with a weapon at the mall in which the defendant allegedly hit a security guard with a car.”

Pabst says her office also dealt with a sexual assault incident where an individual allegedly hassled and groped a teenager. There was a stack of non-violent crimes that made the list as well.

“There were three endangerment crimes,” Pabst said. “One involved unlawful transactions with children, which is formerly known as contributing to a minor or contributing to the delinquency to a minor. There were two felony DUIs, two theft cases, four meth cases and a failure to register.”

Pabst mentioned that she has notice a trend of increased crime after a sustained period of bad weather. She says people seem to become more and more agitated, which can result in a high number of violent crimes.
