$5,000 Bail Each For Two Defendants Charged With Separate Counts of Felony Assault
Two men, both charged with felony assault with a weapon, appeared before Judge Marie Anderson in Missoula Justice Court. Monday afternoon.
According to court documents, 20 year-old Dakota Catudio-Garrett allegedly threatened another man with a knife, running at him with the knife in his hand. The victim was able to escape and call the Missoula Police Department.
The second man, 38 year-old Tony Beeson allegedly threatened another man with a pipe over smoking methamphetamine, and was placed back in jai, on $5,000 bail
Deputy Missoula County Attorney Brittany Santorno asked for $15,000 bail for Catudio-Garrett, but the public defender asked the judge to lower the bail to only $5,000, because she had just done so in a separate case for Beeson.
Both men are now being held on $5,000 bail, and if released, are to have no contact with their alleged victims.
