Man Attacks Missoula Hospital Workers With a Box Cutter
At around 3:30 a.m. on August 23, a man lashed out at St. Patrick Hospital workers with a box cutter.
A suspect, 30-year-old Justus Miller, was later found at the corner of Spruce and Orange Street and arrested by Missoula city police officers.
According to Sargent Scott Pastian, Miller has been charged with “two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.”
Even though neither of the St. Patrick’s Hospital security officers were injured in the attack. Pastion says the incident still qualifies as a felony because the workers “possessed fear of serious bodily injury due to the actions of the suspect.”
It is still unclear why attack took place and no motivation has been released.
Miller will be arraigned in Justice court within the next two days.
